Best Stain remover???

Moms View Message Board: General Discussion: Archive October 2006: Best Stain remover???
By Beth on Sunday, October 22, 2006 - 02:13 pm:

Okay I am the biggest klutz. My dh nicknamed me spiller. I went to put on this new shirt today and there was what looked like grease spots all over the bottom half. Now I admit that this is not unlike me. But for the life of me I only wore this shirt two times and I do not remember this happening. I am so frustrated. I need something good to try and take this out. It just came out of the wash so it is probably set in. I don't think spray and wash will do it. Any suggestions that I can just buy at Walmart or the grocery store. Thanks.

DAwn dishwashing soap is what my mom taught me to use ... put it on directly and then soak and rub a bit and soak and then wash ...usually worked for her and me

Do you use dryer sheets? Greasy spots can be caused by the sheets so if that might be the case, try rubbing the spots with a bar of white soap and rewashing. DON'T dry it until you know the spot is out.

If that's not the problem, try Shout Gel with the built-in brush. Rub it in really good, let it sit for 5-10 minutes and then wash in cold water. The only other stain remover I really like is Folex. I find it at Home Depot and it will take out almost anything but I don't like to use it on delicate fabrics. HTH

I am always spilling or dropping stuff on the front of me, too. We used to laugh at my British Grandma because she used to tuck a napkin into her front before she ate or drank anything, but she was quite "buxom". I never used to be until I put on my middle aged weight. Now I have trouble keeping "them" (LOL) out of my food, too. DH and the boys will make comments about what a slob I am.

I have stained many new tops and shirts. I use OxyClean. I make a paste, rub it in, let it sit, them wash the item in warm water.

I use oxyclean or zout.
