The first baby I had I purchased a special “baby” cleaner – meaning that I sprayed all his baby clothes and stains with a special mixture to get out his “special” stains.
It worked well.
But quickly life moved on and we added more and more kids to the family – and those kids were growing. Then a few pets into the mix, and we were a ticking time bomb of messes … inevitably something was going to get on us, often daily. I didn’t want to buy a variety of stain cleaners … I wanted one product to use for all occasions.
I found that in Shout Laundry Stain Remover Gel.
We’d tried various Shout products before, but once we tried the Gel we never looked back. The product marries the best cleaner with the best packaging for our needs. It’s the one pre-treater we use time and time again, month after month, year after year.
This Shout Laundry Stain Remover Gel comes in a white tube with Shout logo. The gel comes out by squeezing the top and then the product gels out of the bright brush top. This top is kept clean by a clear cover. The brush is also made out of easy to clean, flexible bristles, so when it gets dirty over time I find it a breeze to wash off under running water.
After squeezing out the gel, you simply use the brush to scrub the product into the stain. The idea is that you can use this product any time . Right before you do the wash, right after the stain appears … this product is supposed to be work no matter when you apply it (so long as you apply it before you wash and dry!). Honestly most often we are remembering the stain days and days later, and it’s rare that we even remember to treat the stain right away.
The product claims to work on many types of stains …” motor oil, grass, dirt, cuff and collar, and other tough stains.” (from the company) We have, I feel, typical family stains – grass, red clay, food, dirt, baby formula, and leaky diapers being among the biggest. I cannot think of a time when Shout Laundry Stain Remover Gel has not worked on a stain (except of course forgetting to use it). If an article of clothing was washed and dried without treating it, we have found we cannot go back and rewash it with the stain remover. So with all new clothing we are much more careful now to keep them clean each time so that there’s nothing the product cannot handle.
We notice that one 8.7 oz tube costs around $3.00 in our area and lasts a few months (we have a family of 5). We always notice when it’s time to buy more as when you squeeze the product will be hard to come out or you will hear a lot of air when you squeeze.
This gel works way better than the spray, and is easier to control. This formula I feel gets into the fabric better and the brush at the top really is a great feature.
We use Shout Laundry Stain Remover Gel for all our stain needs and will continue to do so.
