How To Get Stains Out Of Clothes

Updated on August 24, 2011

Get The Stains Out Of Clothes


If you are one to toss out clothing with “impossible” stains, this hub is for you! I have become an expert in stain removal because I am clumsy and I tend to wear my food. Raising an equally clumsy daughter contributed to my expertise as well. I also have a nasty habit of whipping out an art project in good clothes. This habit can leave stains that even I cannot get out. When this happens I have been known to tie dye the clothing or turn them into rags! So there you have it, a self-proclaimed expert in the art of stain removal. On with the tips and tricks sure to make you an expert as well!

In my hub How to Clean Years of Kitchen Grease I introduced LA’s Awesome All Purpose Cleaner. This product is not only useful for kitchen grease; it is a wonderful stain remover. Not only can it be used as a pre-spotter, it can be added to the wash water along with detergent. This is very helpful with oil. It also helps reduce odors in clothing.

Another LA cleaning product I use for laundry is Awesome Cleaner With Bleach. This product has been helpful to me in getting stains out of white clothing. Used as a pre-spotter it is very good at removing even old stains.

Perhaps you really like the clothing you stained and cannot get the stain out? Then try what I do, tie dye...On dark clothing, use bleach instead of dye. I have come up with some very interesting patterns using bleach and following it up with dye.

Have fun with your never know what a prize can come out of an opps...

God Bless,

      I love the idea of tie dying clothes that I would otherwise have to throw out. I have to carry stain removal wipes with me wherever I go!

      I use Zout laundry remover spray with 3-in-1 action (orange bottle) or Oxi-Clean 4-in-1. They get almost anything out, including set-in stains. Just spray, rub in, let sit about 10 minutes, and wash as normal.
