Stain removal guide - Page 4

post #46 of 52

Bump - This is AMAZING. Took out all of the collar ring on a white cotton shirt, striped white shirt and pink shirt as well.

 

Excellent.

Has anyone tried this with warm/cold water? I always wash all my clothes in cold water and only put them in the dryer for ~10 minutes before hang drying, so I'm pretty worried about the shrinkage that might happen with hot water.

Still, this method dominates stains.

I'm not sure where I saw it, but I read on this site that using any kind of oil on MOP buttons that were dulled by the vinegar would help. I tried it out and indeed it does bring the buttons back to their original luster, and make them incredibly smooth. I used grape seed oil, but I'm sure most others will work. Just be careful about not getting any on the (white) shirt. I just put some oil on the tip of my finger and lightly "dab" each button face and let it absorb.

Also for everyone on here, I've found that if I spray my collars with Shout brand degreasing foam stain remover before I put it in the laundry basket I never get rings on my shirts. (http://www.shoutitout.com/en-US/Products/Pages/shout-advanced-stain-lifting-foam.aspx)

And for you that also iron yourself, try using Faultless stain resistant starch on the inside of the collar before ironing. (http://www.faultless.com/fs_3.php)

It's removed blood, ball point ink, pomegranate, and blueberry juice stains. Used on natural fibers.

Works much better than the regular Spray 'n Wash stain stick.

Wow! Does this also remove the ring around the collar?

I used Oxyclean recently and it worked fantastically. I sprayed on stain remover, brushed the fabric a bit and let the shirt soak overnight. From there I put the shirt in the washer and it came out completely like new... I was pretty surprised.

Can't speak to that product, but I can tell you that Shout Advanced Gel gets rid of ring around the collar brilliantly -- no oxy anything required, and therefore retaining the luster on your MOP buttons. You have to use the fabric brush at the top of the bottle to really work the stuff into the stain.

 

(I do use the Spray N Wash spray for non-ring-around-the-collar stains and it's great.)

I have a question with the Oxy-Clean method (esp. to Versaceman). There is no available Oxy-Clean powder (the one in a tub) in the nearest supermarket, but there's an Oxy-Clean stain fighter in liquid. Is this an acceptable substitute? If I'm going to use it, do I have to the change the amounts, etc.? Thanks in advance.
