Can you really get out dried in stains w/out using bleach?

I'd love to know if you've found a product (not bleach) that takes out stains that have been dried in (as in gone thru the drier-& set the stain)

  • Biokleen's Bac-Out, peroxide, Oxygen Bleach...all of these will do it, though it may take several treatments.

  • You can always try peroxide. Check the color fastness of the material though before you move to far ahead. I have used it with many stubborn stains I couldn't remove. but only after checking how well the dye holds up in the fabric or carpet. Let it soak and place a white towel underneath garment. Then before it dries, wash as normal.
