i am super neurotic about stains on clothes. i am that person who carries around tide pens and shout wipes--altho they don't work that well. kids are a mess. they get stains on everything, so when i found resolve max with spray 'n wash(also sold as spray 'n wash max) it was an answer to my prayers! i swear by this stuff. it gets stains out of everything--seriously. i think they even guarantee it on the label. another miracle worker is restoration. it is recommended for getting the yellow out of antique fabrics, but i use it to remove old stains from clothes, the ones that have been set in after several washes. it is magical!
