Stain Me

Okay, seriously? How is it possible that I have spent 2 years getting poo stains out of cloth diapers but I CAN NOT get dirt stains off the butt of a toddler's pants? Or food stains off her shirt? What am I doing WRONG!? Stain stick, Shout, Oxyboost, Oxycxlean, Tide, Liquid Color-Safe Bleach, Different water temps. Presoaks. Double washes. Soaking overnight. Sunning. Grandma's Spot Remover. Vinegar and Water. Straight Vinegar. Seriously? What am I missing here?

Spam me. I want your secrets.

Try this recipe from the Tightwad Gazette. I always had great luck with it. Hey and if you haven't tried it and it works and if I pay you would you make me some microfiber pads for my steam mop? LOL, half way kidding here. Here is the link.

Check out her books. There are three of them and back in the early 90's I was like you, recycling, babies, canning, gardening. I still have these books and still love them. Lots of great things even if you don't use it all.

Totally Toddler from TRU or BRU works wonders on everything. Or Dawn Dish Soap.
