Those small pink, blue and yellow packets of artificial sweetener may not be in your diet if you prefer to eat food made from natural ingredients, but they can be handy to have on hand. If you come across a few, keep them in your purse or in your desk at work instead of tossing them out, because artificial sweeteners can also serve as a clothes saver. Grease splatters on clothes can be remedied by blotting the stain with artificial sweetener grains. The fine powder absorbs oil without getting sticky; the more sweetener you use, the more it absorbs.
