How To Remove a Barbecue Stain

I like a nice barbeque with wood fired meat and yummy salads. Which as you already know can lead to stains.

Spilling barbeque sauce on my clothes is one of those things in life that I do too often, even though I’m really careful. I suppose the better the barbeque sauce the more likely you’re going to spill it.

It only takes a second, when you somehow miss your mouth, or splat goes the chop on your plate – spraying sauce all over your white top.

Do you sit there with your stain of shame? Or do you get up and dash off to the nearest sink? From experience I can tell you it’s better to remove barbeque stains as soon as they happen.
