My household made the switch from paper to cloth napkins a few years ago. We have something like three dozen white cotton napkins for everyday use. But what about stains? The last thing anyone wants is to have to be careful with napkins! Here’s a way to remove stains in a snap:

Hang napkins on a clothesline to dry in the sun! Stains will be bleached by the rays (even stains that are set by hot water washing or a cycle through the dryer!). Not only will your cloth napkins stay white – they’ll also stay naturally fresh and clean.
