This may not be news to some of you, but I recently had a bit of revelation.
(Sometimes I call these "duh" moments, sometimes revelations...it depends on my level of self-esteem at the time."
I use oxiclean as my favorite stain treatment and I think it works pretty well. But, it doesn't get out everything, and/or I need to wash something twice.
Then, the thought occurred to me that if I would just rinse the shirt (or whatever dirty piece of clothing) in the sink with cold water and then spray it....well, let's just say that works a whole lot better!
So, want a tough stain out? Rinse it out!
Works for me!
