Stain Remover - Savannah,GA
I have a question about stain removers. My husband is a mail man and his shirts get very dirty. you can imagine how dirty all those letters and packages are! I have tried several products that just dont work. I wash them in warm water and have used spray and wash, oxiclean and shout. Thanks for your help!
So What Happened?™

hi S.... i'm sure you've tried color safe bleach but what i've found that helped me... i haven't tried it on clothes yet, but i have tried it on stains on the carpet in my 3 yr. old's room.. stains that have been there forever and a yr! a mixture of oxyclean and hydrogen peroxide! IT WORKS!!! i have been sooooo excited to tell all my friends here on post and i'm sure if it works on carpets and furniture stains, it could work on your hubby's stained work clothes. my hubby's a soldier but he does his own laundry simply because they come home with smells the human nose just was NOT designed to ever smell!

Try "Greased Lightning" it works way better than any of those stain removers you mentioned. I've tried them all and this is by far the BEST. You can purchase it at Home Depot. Good Luck!

I answer these questions all the time for people on here as I have found that these products work. There is a product that you can find in any dollar store called Awesome cleaner. I have seen it take out ballpoint pen ink and a several other tough stains. The other product can be found in Wal-Mart or hardware centers, it's called Krud Kutter. This is an excellent product, it will clean anything. I used some in my carpet cleaner and it took out some pretty stubborn stains. But it can be used on clothing and I have used it to clean some nasty stains. Well I hope this helps. Good luck.

I use a product called Prespot if it's more than dirty. It works every time. http://www.saferforyourhome.com/prespot.htm

I have used Shaklee for years and love it. My friend even got red wine out of her best table cloth using the laundry liquid and the Nature Bright(similar to oxyclean but better).
I could send you enough of the powder and the Nature Bright to do a load if you would like to try it. Also there is a impossible soak recipe of those products that you use in a 5 gal bucket that you keep in the laundry room and you just soak it till it is out then throw it in your laundry. Send me an email if you would like any of the samples. I have used the products for 25 years and started distributing them about 12 years ago.

Try soaking the cloth a little while before you tell the washing machine to do the whole cycle Secondly I have put into the stain some diswasher detergent and been pretty happy with the results Good luck
