Now again, I’m not the expert housewife here, but I got another question from a reader on how to get out tough stains.
I don’t roll around in the grass or drip BBQ sauce on myself very often, so stains aren’t a huge problem in my house (for now). But my husband is a bit clumsy sometimes and I have to get coffee stains out of his clothes!
For fresh and old stains, I use OxiClean® Versatile Stain Remover. I mix a scoop full into a bucket of warm water, completely submerse the article of clothing containing the stain, and let it set overnight. Then in the morning, the stain is usually gone. If not, I take it out of the Oxiclean-water mixture and sprinkle the dry Oxiclean onto the shirt and rub it in a bit until the stain is gone.
For anything white, I do the same thing, but add a little bit of Clorox bleach.
Another thing I have used that works great is the Clorox bleach pen.
And I think that’s about it. Like I said, I don’t have many stains to get out. I am pretty hooked on OxiClean though… It works really, really well. I even used in on my wedding dress to get out some dirt stains around the hem. So far, I haven’t found anything it can’t clean, but I’m sure there are a few stains it would have trouble on. It says you can use it as a detergent, but I usually only have one piece of clothing that is stained, so I just wash it sperately in my sink.
