I would like to know if anyone knows how I can get set in stains out of my different colored blouse cuffs.
Thank you for your help.

Hi there, Stains on cuffs are a bit tricky but I have found 2 wonderful things to get out almost anything. One is a product called ZOTE. It is a bar of laundry soap may be purchased via ebay and might be found in your grocery. Another one is a degreaser in the automotive section at Wal-Mart. It comes in a purple gallon size container. It is awesome. These 2 products a little soak and elbow grease and poof, no stains. I use them on even my delicate headcoverings and they come out pristine WHITE!

Does anyone have any ideas on how to remove set in stains on blouse or shirt cuffs? They are on different colored shirts not white.
Thanks for your help
Removing the stains depends on the fabric and what is staining them. Try here for a list of stains on different types of fabrics, and how to remove them:
Spot Shot is fantastic on old clothing stains as well as carpeting. Good luck!

You could try an overnight soaking in a solution of powder dish washer detergent and water, about 1/2 cup to a bucket of water. This takes out a lot of stains for me. (05/23/2007)
If they are white I often take a Q-tip, dip it in bleach and just dab it on the individual stains. Then wash immediately.
I also have gotten in the habit of checking and using Stain-stick around cuffs and collars each time I wash them. It seems to be the best fresh stain remover on the market. (05/23/2007)
The dollar stores have some good fabric cleaners. You might try their LA's Totally Awesome Pre-Wash Stain Remover, 32 oz. spray bottle. Synthetic fibers are always tough to get stains out of. (05/25/2007)
Before he retired, I found that putting "GOJO" (or some other mechanics hand cleaner) on stains and let set for a while, then wash as usual,stains would wash out. (05/25/2007)
If white cloth, use Creme Perioxide for several hours or overnight JUST ON THE STAINS, then when removed, wash really well with warm soap/water.
If colored, I'd try WD 40 and then wash out with straight Ultra Dawn directly to the spots.
Good luck and God bless you. : ) (05/27/2007)
