I consider myself an expert on stains, particularly when it comes to dirt stains on clothing. Now, I know you're thinking, “What qualifications do you have to make such a declaration?” Sure, I have two young children, who ostensibly live to ruin their clothing, but clearly that's not unique. It's the fact that my husband and I operate a horse farm with twenty-two show horses AND two children who do after-school chores in the barn. Picture this, twenty-two horse blankets to be kept clean (I'm quite sure you don't want me to describe the things they lay down on) and two lovely little girls grooming and riding those horses in their school clothes. Of course, the entire experience develops character and a sense of responsibility, along with dirt, dirt, and more smelly dirt on every article of clothing in addition to the expected pasta sauce, grape juice, and grass stains. I'm sure you'll allow me the self-assigned “Expert” status.
All of this glorious work ethic development of my two little women leaves me with ordinary and extraordinary types of stains to remove. In my ongoing quest to facilitate my enormous laundry burden, I've stumbled across an epic solution. Clorox 2 Stain Remover & Color Booster is my go-to solution for every load of laundry. It does everything I need for stain removal plus keeps our clothes looking better longer. Color boosting, pre-treating set stains, and even keeps our whites white! So, with Clorox 2 Stain Remover & Color Booster, I can pre-treat the un-identified greenish stain on the riding breeches, keep the new favorite pink leggings looking bright pink despite being washed and worn every day for weeks, AND get the horse blankets stain-free while maintaining their beautiful hunter green hue.
Here's how I remove our toughest mud stains:
- Wait for the mud stain to dry. In most cases, the more quickly you work on a stain, the better it will be. Well, not mud. Let the mud dry thoroughly to prevent smearing. Do not attempt to wipe off the mud. Learn from my mistakes. It will only smear the stain onto more of the clothing.
- Shake or vacuum off the mud-stained area. Now that the mud stain has dried, try shaking or vacuuming the area to remove dried clumps of mud.
- Using Clorox 2 Stain Remover & Color Booster, pre-treat the stained clothing. Apply Clorox 2 Stain Remover & Color Booster directly onto the stain. Lightly rub the stained area between your fingers every 3-5 minutes to help loosen the stained area without allowing it to dry.
- Wash with Clorox 2 Stain Remover & Color Booster and your favorite liquid laundry detergent.
