    Stain Removal Help

     Stains on clothes can be mostly when they ruin fabric. Can you help this reader with her laundry problem?

     

     What's the best way to remove any stains from khaki-colored pants? Most stain-remover laundry products leave stains themselves on the khakis.

    My son recommended Zout and I love it!  He's always dribbling on his shirts and if he doesn't see the spot before he washes, it will leave a stain.  His shirts (and all my laundry) are stain free.  Spray it on 5 minutes before laundering to let it soak in.

    I have had success using Ivory facial soap on stains.  This is a bar soap that is quite gentle.  I had some grease on a pair of light grey leggings and I used the bar soap on the stain and it came out.  I also used it on a blouse that had stains from fabric softener liquid and the blouse had gone through another wash and dry.  I wet the area and rubbed the bar soap on the stain and then rinsed it well and hung it to dry.  The stain was gone.  I imagine any bar soap that is free of perfumes and dyes will also do the trick.  Sally

     My hubby comes home from work with stains on his khakis nearly every time he wears them.  I pretreat with Dawn dishwashing liquid then wash with Oxyclean and soap.

    I have good luck using plain dish detergent. Apply to the stain and work it in. (The detergent works best if you let it set for a while. I try to do it before I put the item in the laundry basket.)

    I have also had great success using Zout.  I have found no stains that it will not remove (thus far).  It comes in a squeeze bottle on the laundry aisle in the supermarket here.

    CheapChick, Zout isn't generic.  I've only been able to find it at one of my Walmart's (I can shop at three, soon to be 4). If you ask the store manager about it they just might begin carrying it for you.
