  • For whites I use a Clorox bleach pen. For all other clothes I use Zout. I also use Spray-n-Wash Resolve laundry booster with my colored clothes.

    For carpets I use spray peroxide on fresh bodily-fluid stains then wait a minute and blot. For older stains or for non bodily-fluids, I use Resolve carpet cleaner.

  • Depending on the stain I use either peroxide or a mix of vinegar/baking soda for clothes. I used to use Simple Green for everything but it's been years since I bought any cleaners.

  • we try not to use any "stain removers"... i try the "natural" approach, like soaking blood stains in hot salt water, etc... usually works. my kids normally have their "play" clothes on that i don't care if they get stained anyhow!

  • Bleach for whites, Clorox 2 for colors, plus Shout.

  • Eco-Sense pre spot and Sol-U-Mel - for clothes - just sol-u-mel for all other stains - works great!
