Anyway, enough of my ramblings and on to the details. My aunt shared this with me when I was in college. I had dropped a cherry pit on my new white shirt and was rather upset at myself for ruining my shirt when I hadn't even gotten much use out of it. Are you ready for it? She told me to pour BOILING water through the stain. I couldn't believe it. Boiling water, won't that set the stain? Amazingly, no! The cherry stain immediately disappeared as I poured the boiling water through it.

I tried to get a picture of me pouring the boiling water through the elderberry syrup stain on my son's sweater, but the steam greatly affected the quality of the photo - not to mention the fact that I was using my cell phone camera.

Come back tomorrow for Craft Fair Friday - once a month I will share a crafty project that I've been working on and hope that you will too. I love to see what ideas others come up with, to get more inspiration for another project. Next week I will share another amazing discovery of how to remove blood stains without using bleach. You may already know this trick, but it was new to me a few years ago. OOPS didn't get to this idea yet, but hopefully I will one of these days.
