Mark Treated Stain with Safety Pin Before Washing

When treating laundry stains, I keep safety pins handy and put one where the stain is. When I pull the laundry item out of the washer, I look for the safety pin, to see if the stain came out, before I put it in the dryer. The heat in the dryer can set the stain. I want to be sure the stain came out before I put it in the dryer. This saves my clothes.

A wonderful idea! My daughter in law has a little tin of safety pins on the shelf above the washer for keeping kid socks together in the wash. I'll tell her about this. Thanks!
