Need Help Getting Stains Out of Clothes w/out Ruining Them

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

My stain routine is ruining their clothes and I need help. Currently I use oxi spray on anything not grease, let it sit then wash in hottest water (as says on the bottle). For grease I use palmolive, ru it in, let sit for a day then wash on hot. Most of the time the stains come out but the clothes look really worn and faded. What should I do?

I'd suggest washing in cold water. I never use hot and the stain remover sprays work fine for me on most stains. If its something I think will be especially tenacious I soak for at least 24hrs in an oxy action nappy soaker. Also made up with cold water.

I also line dry in the shade most of the time as well.

I agree, washing in hot is harsh on clothes.
I would spray and then wash soon after. Check for the stain and if it is still there, then I would spray and let it sit for a while.
Oxy stuff can cause lots of fading.

Rinse ASAP in cold water. Sun if i can. Grease i also love dish soap, for the rest I found a good gel from whole foods, their 365 brand. Then I wash normally and try to check before the dryer. Some need a soak, I found Biz works great on organic stains.

I use a stain remover bar called Buncha farmers, it's amazing!
