I tried to clean a pantyliner without this product and the staining was horrible. A quick scrub with this product and they came perfectly clean in the wash!
I've been using my gladrags without this for about 6 months and was starting to get realllllly heavy staining (because i was silly and bought the grey and white bunnies instead of dark color ones with the worlds heaviest period) i got this and went crazy scrubbing old stains and new stains. I just pulled them out of the washer and they literally look brand new. I honestly couldnt believe it. I have never been so impressed with a cleaning product before. they also took out all the color bleeding i was starting to get (with the blue tile print ones) jeeze
This is a great little stain remover – I always rinse out my pads and then I rub on some of this before I put them in the wet bag to wait for laundry day and I haven't had any problems with staining yet! I've gone through only half a stick in six months so you get a LOT of use for your money.
I was used to another soap, a pink bar called "Zote" for some of you familiar with this giant sized bar, to remove cooking oil and blood stains. I never thought I had a need to use another product until this one arrived with my Moon Cup Kit. I used my "jabonzote" on the used cloth pads and didn't see the results I was used to. After a few more times I tried the Buncha Farmers Stain Remover. I was impressed that it could do the job in less time. And really, they looked much better once they went through the laundry cycle. I haven't tried it on cooking oil stains but I don't doubt it would be fine. It takes a 2-3 times hand washing the cloth pads, but I don't mind it because that was the same process with the "Zote" bar. If you're doubtful, just give it a chance.
I purchased this stain stick after a few months of owning the pads. Just wet one end and rub on your stains and stains disappear in a soaking pot or the washing machine! Will purchase again.
Ordered this small bar of soap in the shape of a stick. It is very hard, smells pleasantly like citronella, and is a good natural stain remover. Ordered it with some new pads. It easily removes that are not set in on the new pads. I soaked and then applied, then laundered as usual. On my older pads with stains that are set in through multiple washes and drying cycles, it was not as successful. I used the stick on some of those stains. I had presoaked my pads, then used it on the stains prior to laundering. It did help, but did not completely remove the stains. Soaking in BAC- Out is about as effective and the cloths end up much fresher. Basically, it is a nice stick of natural laundry soap, and works well on fresh stains, but not well on set in ones.
I bought this stain stick when I bought my pads over a year ago. I still have more than half of it left and there are no stains on any of my pads, not even on the white ones! Occasionally, I have to do some hand washing but mostly I just soak and throw in the machine. I just rub a little of this on the pads then toss them in the wash and they come out good as new. It smells great too. I hope it works as well on cloth diapers since I'll get to try it soon!
I have another product that I bought (I liquid that one pours on the stain and lets sit until the stain disappears) that was mildly effective. I decided to try this since it was inexpensive and the reviews were mostly positive. The first time I tried it, I couldn't believe how effective it was! I'm so pleased! If it wasn't so obvious that the bar will last a LONG time, I would buy more immediately because I was that happy with how well it got stains out.
I don't need to soak or pre-rinse pads if I use this. I just toss the pad in my hamper and when I'm ready to do laundry I wet the pads and rub the stain stick on and it always comes out without a stain. I've used it on old stains including coffee and it's just excellent.
