Cheap Stain Remover and Detergent

Farming is dirty there is no way around it. A bottle of Shout was not lasting very long around here when I had to start washing Kurt's barn clothes. Before we were married, I had started washing my barn clothes with Palmolive Oxy using a tablespoon for each load. I was not using any other detergent and my clothes were coming out cleaner. Once I was faced with the daunting task of cleaning Kurt's pants, which had manure and iodine stains. I turned to my dish soap. Putting a dab on the stain and rubbing it over the area. It was like magic, stains be gone! You do not want to get carried away though because a tablespoon creates plenty of suds. I only use my dish soap now for stain removal and use half of what they recommend for my regular detergent.

This Works for Me. Go see what works for others!

Thanks so much for sharing this tip! My son's white baseball pants are so hard to clean and I will definitely try this.
