Typically, I do my laundry on Mondays. This week, unfortunately, I didn't get to it until yesterday! Horrible, I know! :) After doing ALL of the laundry in the house I decided it was time to blog about stain removal!! I know everyone may have their own method of stain removal but I would like to share mine! I live with two boys. One is a Soldier and the other is 3. I bet you can imagine the kind of stains I have to deal with! Captain Hunk SWEARS no one can remove stains quite like me. He is a little silly though! I swear by TWO kinds of stain remover: Shout Advanced & Oxy Clean.
The Oxy Clean is great for blood stains because it actually foams up to dissolve the stain. I think shout it great for EVERYTHING else. The only thing better is mixing the two together! YEP! Just yesterday I needed to get a pizza stain out of one of Troop's white shirts. I sprayed on some Oxy Clean and then dabbed on a little Shout. Then I rubbed it in using the bristles at the end of the Shout bottle. I didn't even have to let it sit. For more worked in stains I would let it sit for a bit. The sauce stain came right out!! Be sure to check the clothing before putting it in the dryer to make sure the stain came out. Sending it through a heated drying load my set the stain for good. Captain Hunk recently left a tan hat in his Jeep with the top off and it poured down rain. When the hat dried it was nearly black. I sprayed it with Oxy Clean, rubbed it in with Shout and then put it through the dishwasher! The stain was pretty bad so I ran it through twice but now the hat looks BRAND NEW!! Sometimes I take too much pride in my stain removal abilities but sometimes it's the little things that make me feel so accomplished! :)
