I recently received a bottle of Green Works laundry detergent and Stain Remover to test. I love the Green Works All Purpose spray. It clean everything FABULOUSLY and is good for the environment as well.
I am always looking for ways to be more environmentally friendly but cannot sacrifice my cleaning power. So, I decided to do my own stain test to see how it well it works. I took an undershirt, stained it and let the stains set for a few hours. Then I cut the shirt in half and washed half in regular Green Works detergent and half with the Green Works stain remover and Green Works detergent. The following pictures are my test. I apologize for the terrible lighting but I did what I could with the lighting in my house and lack of natural light.
Here is the shirt before stains and washing
This is my staining of a shirt. My stains are not as perfectly shaped as a commercial but they are real. The first is Tabasco sauce, the second is a major glob of mustard, the third is grape juice, and the last one is my attempt at a dirt stain.
Another view of the stained shirt
This is the half the shirt with the stain remover sprayed on it
Half the shirt washed without stain remover but still in Green Works detergent in hot water (you can’t see but there is still a little grape juice stain on the shirt that is very faint). The hot sauce and mustard stains are still very apparent.
This is the half a shirt washed with the stain remover in hot water (grape juice and dirt out, mustard and hot sauce not out)
These are close ups of the stains after they were washed with the stain remover and detergent.
That was my at home stain remover test. After the test I tried to get out the hot sauce and mustard with Shout ULTRA and it also did not get them out. So…my best advice is to deal with those types of stains before they set in. I wish you good luck.
Let me know your tricks for really tough stains.
