How to Get Out Stains in Clothes – Even Old or Set in Ones
Life happens and so do stains. Dribbled coffee, smeared ketchup, sweaty pit stains, spilled wine, or a streak of grass and dirt are common family laundry problems. But a stain on your clothes doesn’t mean ruin when you use OxiClean™ stain remover.
How to Wash Laundry & Get Rid of Stains
Whatever tough stains your family gets on their laundry, OxiClean™ is the versatile stain remover to get them out. There are several ways you can use OxiClean™ Verstaile Stain Remover to get rid of stains and get your laundry looking cleaner and smelling better.
Pre-soak: Got big stains from a spill? Whether your favorite shirt or pants – or both! – got stained, a pre-soak before washing will help loosen and break down particles.
- Fill a bucket, laundry sink, or your bathtub with water (check the clothing care label on the item to see what temperature is recommended)
- Add OxiClean™ Versatile Stain Remover to Line 2 or 4 for every gallon of water. Mix until the powder is completely dissolved for best results.
- Soak the garmet for 1-6 hours, depending on the severity of the stain.
- Wash: When you’re ready to wash in your machine, add the soaked item to the drum as you typically would.
Boost your wash: Sometimes there are small stains on clothing that you didn’t notice, or those clear, phantom stains that come from oils, grease, or sweat. Add OxiClean™ Versatile Stain Remover to every load of laundry to unleash the power of oxygen and get your clothes extra clean. Simply put your regular detergent in the dispenser, and add the OxiClean™ directly to the drum for more stain-fighting power.
OxiClean™ Versatile Stain Remover is chlorine-free and safe on all colors. It works in HE and standard washing machines and can help boost any type of laundry detergent. Always refer to the packaging for directions and follow the recommended laundry instructions on the item’s care label.
Remove Clothing Stains with OxiClean™ Max Force™ Spray
The faster you treat a stain, the easier it will be to remove. OxiClean™ Max Force™ Spray is a pre-treatment solution that allows you to get the stain fighters in OxiClean™ to work quickly on breaking down a stain, even if you can’t do a load of laundry right away. It’s packed with powerful enzymes designed to target all sorts of stains, including food, grease, makeup, and more.
Follow these steps to use OxiClean™ Max Force™ Spray to get stains out of your clothes.
READ – Check the clothing item’s care instructions. Always test OxiClean™ Max Force™ Spray on an inconspicuous area first for colorfastness. Do not use on wool, leather, silk, or an item labeled “dry clean only.”
SPRAY – Liberally spray OxiClean™ Max Force™ Spray directly onto the stain. Pre-treating helps keep the stain from penetrating further into the cloth fibers.
WAIT – Wait 5-10 minutes for OxiClean™ to begin breaking down the stain. You can even pre-treat a stain now and wash up to a week later. For fabrics that are prone to color change, do not let stand longer than 5 minutes.
WASH – Wash the item with your usual detergent at the temperature settings recommended by the item’s label. Add OxiClean™ Versatile Stain Remover™ directly to the drum with your clothes to get them even cleaner.
