I have three boys who love to haul dirt (stolen line). So as you can imagine I do need to use stain remover sometimes. I have tried a few different sprays etc but I always seem to go back to SARD WONDER soap. Its actually cheaper than the sprays and goes further, in my own experience. I think a soap bar costs under $3 dollars but will confirm that on my next run to a supermarket. A good tip is to put the cake of soap in an old stocking /pantyhose so it lathers up well.
Does anyone have any better, cheaper or preferred stain removal methods?
Oh yeah and the best bet is to hit a stain immediately where possible. Try and figure out if it needs a hot or cold water wash so it doesn't set. Also avoid leaving things damp in piles or you'll discover impossible to remove mould.
Another tip for children who refuse to wear bibs or outgrown them. Keep handy a couple of really old T-shirts that are about one size up ( need good necklines though) to put over regular clothes at meal times.
I'd love a discussion on this so please leave a comment if you can.
