Stain's made EASY!

Yesterday my daughter got into food coloring and can you imagine getting that out!? It's like Koolaid but straight dye! Well, I talked with my mother and she suggested that I try Greased Lightening.. GUESS WHAT!! Not only did it work, but I put it on straight, let it set for about 30 seconds, dunked it in warm water, queezed it out and it was GONE! No scrubbing, no washing and NO waiting!! It was a white shirt with colored print on it, and the colored print stayed too! I am going to try it on the stains in the carpet, let yall know in a little bit!!

Sorry Green ladies, it's totally not a green product!

  • LOL well the sorry to us "green" gals is appreciated....but I can still see the value in helping what otherwise would be clothes for the trash bin otherwise. Some things I can't give Miss Clariol once a month, hehehe

  • By the way! You can find it at the dollar general!! (Haven't done the carpet yet because Lily left about the time Nathaniel got home and there was no time alone for me :(, try again another day!)

  • I love greased lightning, but never thought of using it for clothing stains.
