Some things, especially cotton, seem really hard to completely "de-stain". Pinky

|any home made remedies?|
get a pint of good wiskey...put a few drops on the stain.....now while you wait...drink the rest of it.........what stain...!!!!!
which is very good and removes all. A cap of Vanish and 60 degree wash and all is clean.
However, the Whiskey does seem a far better idea and I will give it several tries to see how well it works.
|I sort my clothes-whites in one basket, towels/washcloths in antoher, dark clothes in a laudry chute. Then a fairy comes in and *poof* all the stains disappear, everything is folded or hung in its place. I loved it so much I've stuck with the same fairy for 33+ years. (And not only does she get the stains out, but she makes me laugh, makes me dinner, keeps me warm in the winter, cries with me, listens to me, gave me 2 little fairies who are now making their own little fairies.....)|
Great response, you lucky man you!
I did a huge reply to this thread yesterday but lost the lot! Does remedy did come up, as well as just hanging the clothes in the sun which actually came up a lot! That sounds the cheapest anyway!
Good luck, Rach
Sorry about your accident! I buy the Greased Lightning by the gallon at Home depot. Stuff works miracles!
Tricia, Years ago I discovered waterproof crib pads! They are washable, fabric covered, thin rubber pads that are used on babies beds! They don't crinkle or get too hot like plastic. I place them below the sheets and my standard mattress pad to form a barrier between me and the mattress. The bed linens, mattress pad, and crib pad will wash and the mattress stays perfectly clean and dry!
Actually, I.ve used OXI-XLEAN with hot water and a bit of cheap liquid (like Ivory, Lux etc.), let the offenders soak overnight-- squeeze out all the liquid next day and put intoa warm/cold wash in the machine with more OXI-CLEAN and detergent of some sort. I never use a chlorine-based bleach. Often use Clorox-II or somesuch.
Maybe worth a try for you.
With all the good ideas, I guess your selection process is eany, meany, miney, mo...
Peace & Love,
