This story goes out to my spill-prone queens. There is nothing more frustrating than getting a stain on your clothes and not being able to get it out. As a mother of two little ones and my own fair share of spills, I battle stains on the daily. Through this humbling practice, I have learned a few things, like what fabrics are the easiest to clean and the best cleaning duo for getting out even the toughest of stains, and I am happy to share my learnings with you below.

When it comes to easy-cleaning fabrics, there are natural and synthetic options that you will want to reach for on your next shopping trip. Cotton and wool will always be great natural picks. As for synthetic fabrics, polyester reigns supreme and is often used to create fleece and faux-leather pieces. On any of these fabrics, your best bet is to treat the stain before it has a chance to set. First, gently remove any debris. Next, run cool or warm water over the area, then go in with my trusty duo—vinegar and clear dish soap.

I like to keep a small spray bottle with a one-to-one mix of white vinegar and water to spray directly on stains, drip on some dish soap (a little goes a long way), and then take a toothbrush that I keep reserved for laundry and begin to scrub the area. You can scrub harder on cotton pieces but need to be gentler on textured fabrics like wool and fleece. Add more of the spray mix or soap as you see fit, and feel free to rinse in cool or warm water as needed to check your progress. From there, launder as usual.

With all this in mind, I rounded up 30 pieces from Nordstrom that are stylish and easy to clean. Here's to stress-free laundry in your near future.
