Green Tip: Keeping Aprons White


White aprons get green-pea stains, red tomato splats, and even worse, yellow turmeric sprinkles. But after years of washing white aprons I have found the nicest way to remove the patterns dinner leaves.

First, wash in hot water with optimism and soap. If you are lucky that is all you need.

However, if colors stubbornly remain: Squeeze a lemon into a small bowl of salt, mix and rub onto the stain, hang in the sunshine (this is an important step), watch the stain fade.

Now if only someone can teach me how to avoid the knotted noodle mess of apron strings that flop out of the wash, I will be very happy.
