  • I treat stains with Zout before I wash. I let it soak for about 5 minutes.

  • I use a lot of different things. I soak dirt stains in hot water and Biz, I put Shout on baby stains like spit up, I wash food stains with Dawn. and I don't put my kids clothes in the dryer, that way stains that don't come out the first time aren't set in and I can try something else.

  • I use Zout. That will even take stains out after they have been through the dryer. Really tough stains I do a combination of Zout and soak it in OxyClean.
