Found 32 oz. bottle at local health food store for $9.69 plus $1 off coupon! Can't beat that ;)
A few drops a day makes a big difference for soaking (I haven't had a single stain since using this product) and a bottle will last a long time. The lime scent is quite pleasant. Recommended!
I would have to say that I am extremely happy this product is out there and that it is good for the environment too. Works wonders on getting the stains out...but not on one when I forgot to soak it...but it was an overnight one and it eventually cleaned right up. Love the smell too...no stinky garbage sitting around with my used pads anymore..yahoo!
I like using this product. It always does the job of removing stains with a nice citric sent. I just wish it came in a bigger bottle.
I usually saturate the stain on a used gladrag with this product and keep the pad in one of the wet bags until I can soak the pad later. Later, I thoroughly cool rinse out the pad (and much of the stain comes out that way since the enzymes have been working for a while by then). Next, I wring out all the water, and drop the pad into a bucket of cool water to soak overnight with a squirt of this product added in. In the morning, I wring out the pad again, squirt/spray more of this product on (like you would do so using a pre-wash conventional stain remover), and store the treated pad in a large wet bag (along with other treated pads I accumulated during my cycle until wash day (i.e. the end of my cycle). Works wonders! No stains, no smells, great care on the material. Once I did not get around to washing the used, treated pads until a week after my cycle ended and the stains were completely gone. I am very happy with the product.
Here is why I love Bac-Out It takes the teenyest amount. So you get a lot of use for your money. I do use the enamel soaking pot and sometimes we ladies do not have time to change the water each night, if you have a new born especially, and a lil squirt of this and a stir of the used pads, no worries. It has a pleasent very faint lime scent which does not linger on pads after washing. I have had no issues with it causing my allergies to flare. I came into the reuseable world because I was tired of having a UTI or yeast infection after each cycle no matter what I used even organic. The live enzymes are absolutely great never have a stain. The glad rag site has loads of info on this product as well. I do intend to buy more when I run out.
I have used it by following the directions on the bottle but honestly I have not seen any difference besides making it smell citrusy :( My cloth pads have these weird white stains that do not come out & I honestly don't know what it is? I think I have probably been using it wrong I'm not really sure. I soak my pads in cold water and after I put the biokleen things on the stains but when it dries it is still there.
Works really well at getting odors and stains out.
Smells good and can be applyed directly to pads if needed but i put a few squirts in my soaking container then fill with water so pads can soak to fight off bacteria growth while they soak all day. The cap was cracked when it arrived (it did not leak) but was easily swapped out with a lid off of my liquid dish detergent. I would buy this again!
