Use The #ResolveTip Exchange So You Don't Have To Deal With Stains Alone

Getting a stain on our favourite clothing can be very disappointing and frustrating. The toughest stains that I deal with are caused by tea, grass and pen marks. My children and I enjoy using different craft materials and pens that somehow end up leaving a stain on our clothing.
I usually remove a stain from our favourite clothing by soaking the clothes in soapy water with a bit of shampoo and rub the stain using an old toothbrush. Depending on the stain, sometimes I use a little bit of rubbing alcohol, baking soda or fabric bleach and wash the stain off before throwing the clothes in the laundry. However, I find using a stain remover like Resolve makes the job much easier.
Sometimes when a stain appears and I am unsure of how to get rid of it, I always look for a new solution. Having a site full of tips on how to remove stubborn stains is useful to all of us. Sharing different methods that work on this new Resolve® Tip Exchange not only helps others during their dilemma, but will also help us remember what we did to remove the stain.

Although, there are several tips on removing stains I find the easiest way to remove stains is by using Resolve® Oxi-Action or Oxi-Action Crystal white in-wash stain removal powder. To use this we simply have to pre-treat our stain by making a paste with 1/4 scoop of the powder and 3/4 scoop of warm water. This paste needs to be applied on the stain and left for about 5 minutes. Then we can simply add the clothing with the rest of the washing clothes, detergent as usual and wash. For the toughest stains it is best to soak the clothing with warm water and a scoop of Resolve for no more than an hour, give it a rub on the stained area and then wash it as usual in the laundry.
