How do you remove food stains from clothing? They are mostly tomato based, ketchup, spaghetti sauce, etc.
I have started using Simple Green for laundry stains. I first used it on the coveralls that hubby uses when he works outside on equipment, then started using it on white socks, then I tried it on the regular laundry. A spray bottle of Simple Green is about $3, it is concentrated even in the spray bottle, but I wet whatever I want to try first, then spray with the Simple Green, let them set for about 30 minutes, and wash. I have not had anything ruined or adversely affected by it, but we don't have any clothes that are delicate or dry clean only.
A little dish detergent on the stain works for me most every time even stains that have been set. Also try using vinegar in your bleach dispenser. If nothing else it really brightens up the colors. Good luck! (07/23/2010)
The best stuff ever is a cleaner you can get at the Dollar Store, Dollar General, and even Wal-mart. GOOP! Rub some in on the stain before washing (you can let it sit for a few minutes if you want) then toss in and wash. It removes Kool-aid and blood along with grass stains and a myriad of other things, too. (08/02/2010)
