Best stain remover for.....

Postby Shopgirl on Tue May 02, 2006 12:30 pm

Washed in deep down all over dirt stains. I don't like using chemicals in my home and my children are big mud and muck kids (which I love!), but their clothes get SO dirty. I just bleached a huge load of stuff and hung it on the line to bleach more in the sun... but there is still a fair amount of dirt on these clothes. Is there anything out there that might help my poor ragamuffins clothes look decent? :D

Thanks!

Have you tried oxyclean? You have to wash your clothes in warm water, but it works well on taking out diesel stains. When dh comes home with really badly soiled clothes, I sometimes apply it directly. If you want to borrow some before buying, let me know!

Lesteroil all the way you can get it at canadian tire it even takes out oil stains from your clothes its a great all purpos cleaner as well. but i would suggest double rinsing your clothes after just put it in the laundry water with soap or apply it directly on the hard stains and let sit then wash works everytime at my house it even gets out formula stains from clothes

good luck with your dirty little mongers :D

Borax is good for whitening and stain removal.
As far as I know it's natural? Works great anyways.

Yes, Borax is natural and non-toxic, not to mention fabulous for cleaning & disinfecting! :D I've even made my own dishwasher soap using equal parts Borax & baking soda, 2 tbsp per dishwasher run.

Oxyclean is also wonderful and quite safe from a chemical point of view, works great if you soak stained items for 24 hours, then wash as normal.

Good luck & happy cleaning! CharleneK

Hey charlene... curious as to how you find your homemade detergent? We are putting in a dishwasher next week, and figure I'll try it. Do you use anything else or just that? Sounds great though! Jayna

I use just that, the combo of Borax & Baking Soad, works just fine so far, only been doing it for about 3 weeks now after finding the recipe on a non-toxic website (http://www.lesstoxicguide.ca).....CharleneK
