The Hotel Monteleone in New Orleans


Going undercover:
The Hotel Monteleone
in New Orleans

For nontoxic cleaning, listen to the executive housekeepers from Historic Hotels of America. Fresh blood stains can be cleaned with hydrogen peroxide, suggests Paulette Sable at the Hotel Monteleone in New Orleans. For makeup stains on dark clothes, Sandy Gough of The Sagamore in Bolton Landing, N.Y., recommends rubbing the material with a slice of bread. Another great tip: White wine cleans red wine stains off carpets, says Ewa Borkowska at Hotel Bethlehem in Bethlehem, Pa.
