Laundry Help From Experts

Ok, Ive been doing laundry for multiple people for a decade now and I think I'm missing some tricks. 

Stains - It doesn't matter which product I try, I cant get stains out. Does anyone have a trick? For instance, my husband works in lawn care and his green shirts always have dirt marks on them and I can't seem to get them out. I've tried Oxyclean (directions on the side of the package). 

Kids clothes always end up with food stains and I can never get it out.

Any tips would be gladly accepted!

I buy armenhammer baking soda detergent and it helps me they sell it in family dollar its all purpose cleaner. i would just try pouring some on the stains and letting it sit. Then put your clothes in the wash and pour more of the detergent.

Ok I can certainly give that a try. I actually have some in my garage that I purchased by accident mistaking it for the other baking soda LOL. 

Thanks!

For grease stains put dish soap on the stain before you wash it. Blood stains use peroxide.

Specifically original Dawn dish soap.

I use Spray-n-wash for stubborn stains and can usually get them out. You have to let it set though. Also spraying with stain treatment and then soaking in Oxyclean for a few days helps.

You need this. Just a little bit on the stain and rub in with a tooth brush. My hubby is a mechanic and this is the only thing gets his grease stains out. Works great on grass stains too. My ball pants were always nice and white

I use Dawn dish soap for grease stains and a Fels Naptha bar for other stains.
