Works for me- ultimate stain remover



As a clumbsy person I always ended up ruining my shirts and clothes because I either spilled something on it, sat in something or dripped makeup on my shirts. Once I had a baby stains became an even more popular thing. Through my course of fighting with stains I asked everyone what they used to get stains out, Oxy clean, shout, bleach pen, tide to go... the list went on. I tried them all. Some seemed to work on some things and not on others, some left a strange spot where you put the stain remover on. No matter what I tried nothing worked the way I wanted it to and they were ALL too expensive for my budget.


In one last attempt to save a nice white dress shirt that I had dripped foundation on (and washed and dryed) I asked a lady at work for any advice she might have. She told me to put some dish soap on it, rub it together and soak it over night. I thought it was pointless, but tried anyway. As I pulled it out of the washer I was amazed. The make up was gone! I couldn't believe it. I tried it on some other clothes that had set in stains... the same thing happened. Throughout this year my daughter has created MANY stains on my clothes and hers. I've learned one thing, don't bother with the expensive stain removers that don't work Just use Dish soap! If you catch the stain before you wash and dry it you don't even have to soak it in warm water, you can just put the dish soap on it and rub it together then throw it in the wash. It works wonders!

Great tip!! I use Dawn dish soap for this, because it really attacks the greasy stains. I have an old hair color bottle with the pointy tip, and I use that to apply the Dawn. Works for me, TOO!

Thanks for a good one!
