  • I have one formula that I use on all stains, Spray N Wash, then I put oxi-clean on it and make a past let it sit for at least 20 mins or up to 1 hr. then I throw it in the wash. It works like a charm but I always treat stains within a day or two if not immediately. If you have stains on whites the Clorox pen works great!

  • Shout advanced its in a blue bottle. And borax mixed in the washer. They come out spotless. Works on five year old little boys clothes too lol

  • I had good luck with OxiClean, especially if I soaked the clothes in it right away. If that doesn't work, then I try Spray n Wash, but I don't like the smell of it so much.

  • I use the dreft spray pretreater, let it sit for 5 minutes or so then wash with all free and clear and a little color safe bleach. It almost always works.

  • I don't use dreft cause I figure at some point I'll stop using it anyway so I use dye and perfume free Tide. For stains I use Shout Set-In Stains with Oxi Clean. Works for everything! Got blueberry juice out of my daughters white shirts.
