Laundry, laundry and more laundry! Some days I just feel completely consumed by laundry. If I’m not careful, it doesn’t take much before I have 8 loads of dirty clothes to clean in one day. It’s not usually a happy time when that occurs because that is a lot of time spent folding clothes. There are two things that I really dislike when it comes to laundry: missing socks and stained clothes! Both of those things seem to happen too often, and in my mind that is wasted or lost money. I’m still trying to come up with a plan to fix the missing sock situation, but I think I now Β have a system for stained clothes.

When I notice someone has a stained article of clothing, I have them place it on the dryer to be pre-treated. I have found that if it goes into the laundry basket with their other clothes, then it often misses the stain remover and gets washed without it (bad move). So, really dirty clothes go to the dryer first. Then when I am washing a load of laundry, I place all of the stained items on my counter and spray them with Resolve Pre-Treat Laundry Stain Remover. I let the product sit for five minutes, and then rub it into the stain before throwing into the washing machine. I have saved many a-clothes that I possibly would have just thrown away in past years.


In the video above, you can see how I let the magic work for beating those BBQ sauce stains on my son’s t-shirt. If a stain seems particularly bad, sometimes I will spray it a second time (after rubbing in), before throwing into the wash. What are your secrets?
