1. REMOVE STAINS

 

Spilled a bit of red wine down the front of your shirt? Again? Fear not: This supposedly unbeatable stain does, indeed, have a match: cold water, lots of salt and, if the situation is dire enough, vinegar. While it may seem too good to be true (and may be if the stain has set too long), Real Simple shows how the formula works.

For all other stains, including sticky cocktails, beer and really most everything else, you’ll want to be sure you have a Tide to Go pen handy. Pre-treat the stain right away and you’re most likely in the clear. But if all else fails, take your stained party-wear to the dry cleaners and let the professionals handle it.

2. BYO…COCKTAIL

If you’ve ever wished that “BYOB” automatically included cocktails and not only beer and wine, well—are you sure it doesn’t? While there are multiple ways to stash a cocktail on the go—this is why bottled cocktails exist, right?—one of the easiest ways to mix and go is with a trusty Mason jar. You can not only mix one drink in a half pint–sized jar, but you can also mix for a group. Keep in mind, though, that if you go this route, you’ll want to stick with simple drinks. Egg whites and cream won’t travel, but a Manhattan, Martini or Margarita will keep its consistency well. You can even ask for a glass of ice or a bucket to re-chill the drink once you’re at the table.
