I have used spray and wash, lestoil, oyi-clean and ever Grease Lightening.

Depending on the stain, some items work better then others.

i use zout, it works well. unfortunatly it is more expensive than some others and rarely have sales or coup[ons, but I like it. I also have some of the carbona stain formulas for specific stains. they work well also.

I have also used multiple stain cleaners. Zout works great, but is expensive. Oxyclean also works good. Clorox Stain Out also works very well. I have also used Greased Lightning.

Where we live, there is lots of red clay. So the kids have clay stains in addition to regular stains that kids provide (grass, chocolate, ketchup, lipstick [my 5 yo twins love it!], etc.):p

I basically try to use the least expensive and offensive and go from there. If all else fails, I patch over it with appliques or tie-dye it!

The best pre-treater I have ever used I made myself. I found the recipe in a cookbook.
Mix 1 part liquid dish soap (like Dawn or Joy), 1 part household ammonia, and 1 part water. Mix well. Put in a spray bottle and use like the boughten ones. Just don't use it with bleach, it causes the clorine to become a gas.

Georgia,

Does this work on red clay, grass stains, chocolate, lipstick, etc.?

I might just try this...always looking for something that does not cost a lot. Thanks!

I know it works on chocolate, grass stains, and baby formula - even with iron. I don't know about red clay because Iowa doesn't have any. It also fades sweat stains so it should at least fade your stains so your clothes are wearable again.

Wow I wonder what it's like to raise children somewhere with out red clay stains to worry about! Red clay is such a way of life in the south I didn't realize there are fortunate people who don't even have to worry about it!

Well I pre treat MY clothes with this spray I found at Canadian Tire, it's called HERTEL PLUS. It's great. I have yet to get a stay it couldnt get out.

For my BABIES clothes I use this power( laundry booster) called AMAZE, It's "AMAZING", and we all know how hard it is to get formula stains out of baby clothes.

I'll have to try the DAWN dish soap.....(cknldy).
I use it at home all the time for dishes.

And I have heard that OXY CLEAN works great too........(sharlibird)
