OT - laundry detergent/stains
I can not get stains out! Not just baby stains, but ALL stains! I swear my clothes just aren't getting clean, although they don't SMELL dirty! We use free & clear detergent because both DH and Connor (and prob Peyton, too) have sensitive skin. DH would break out if I used something like Tide. I'm wondering if I should start using something along with it, like oxyclean or clorox 2? What do you use? Are your clothes getting clean?? lol Frustrating!! :rolleyes:

I use Shout to get out stains. That stuff is AMAZING. Like Arthur ate blueberries and stained up his clothes, I sprayed them down with Shout THREE days later ( I suck at laundry) and poof! no more stains. Like at all. His white polar bear onesie got covered in orange pureed food (pumpkin apple, yum!) sprayed it down with shout, completely white again.

I love resolve stain remover! I use it on all stains (other then cloth, that I use the sun on).

I have a bottle of Shout sitting right next to the hamper in Morgan's room. I spray stains as soon as I can. So far it's worked pretty well, minus some major blowouts that left residual stains.

Re: OT - laundry detergent/stains
Agree with Shout. Also, is your water hard? Once we put a water softener system in it was better on the white clothing.

Re: OT - laundry detergent/stains
Yes super hard water. We had hard water in NC and I never had much of a problem but I also had an old school top loading washing machine. In Florida the water is super super hard but I think it also has to do with the new non agitator washing machines and they just don't get clothes clean like they used to!! IMO ;) thanks for the suggestions! I'll be buying a bottle of stain remover this weekend!

I use oxyclean and it gets out most stains. I will have to try shout for the ones that its not working on.

I usually soak in cold water before washing if I need too.
