After the flood at our house, I went to Home Depot to buy some bleach, since its the best way to kill mildew. Wouldn’t you know it, there wasn’t a bottle of bleach in the place; they were sold out! Everyone had the same idea.
While there I noticed the huge array of cleaning products on the shelves. There was a cleanser for everything. Some of the toughest stain problems have simple home solutions you don’t see advertised in the stores. For example, glycerin can remove ball point pen stains, boiling water removes berry stains, ordinary vinegar is great at removing crayon marks, and lemon juice works miracles on rust stains.
But the most serious of all stains can’t be removed by anything found around your house: its the stain of sin. Tears can’t erase it and zeal won’t take away the guilt. What can wash away my sin?
“The blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin” (1 John 1:7). Meditate on this today.
