I bought a pair of jeans about 2 months ago. I wore them at a previous job I had that required handling dirty boxes all day. I cannot get the stain from the boxes out. It's like a blotchy dirt stain with a yellowish tint. Any suggestions? Please help me. These are my favorite jeans.

you could try using OxyClean (just follow the laundry directions).

Try 1 cup white vinegar and 1 cup baking soda along with your detergent. Or try Spray n' Wash action ball. It works great on anything I have tried so far.

I have a lovely bright teal blouse that has got an oily stain on it which shows up very dark and noticeable. The material is rather stretchy. I think it is polyester. Can you help please. Thank you.

I have blue stains on orange, rust, and dark pink clothes only. I never get anything on white clothes. I am getting really frustrated! I've read your problems and Tide seems to be the connecting factor in all of them. Could that be the problem? I get so upset not knowing when this bluing will occur. I have tried vinegar and Oxiclean to no avail. I can't get the stains out. I have a new washing machine without the traditional agitator. Help!
