    Default Best stain remover

    I have some pen marks on clothing (white of course) from my kids.

    What's the best stain remover out there to get old stains of clothes.

    I'm prepared to spend the money but only if the product is awesome

    I can't go past plain ol, 'Sard Wonder Soap', I find it is awesome on whites and doesn't need that much rubbing etc to get stains like pen out etc.

    Eucalyptus Oil is another great stain remover and Exit Soap (yelllow bar).

    Aldis "di san" is good!! Spray onto dry clothes and then I just fill the sink up with a bit of laundry powder and leave. It to soak or just toss into the machine depending how bad

    To get pen marks out just spray some hair spray on the mark and rub with a cotton wool ball or similar and then spray a bit more hair spray on. Then wash as normal. No stain remover required. My DH is a midwife and gets lots of pen marks and leaky pen stains and we have tried everything but only hair spray seems to work. HTH

    eucalyptus oil is my tried and true for everything. Pen. trexta, greasy marks.

    Dab it straight on, it will look oily. I rub witha cake of soap and then wash as normal. Sometimes I leav it on for awhile.

    Miracle stuff.
