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 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.
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.
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.
This product does what it says it does! It's a small stick, but it's very effective. I'll be buying at least 3 at a time on my next purchase, and the price is great!
Honestly I thought that this was going to be a product that I wasn't sure I would find use for, (I really am not one to mind stains on any of my products) but this smells so amazing that I find myself breaking it out for every little stain on my clothes and pads. Little smudge of grass on lightwash jeans? Buncha Farmers. Coffee on my favorite grey sweater? Buncha Farmers. Boyfriend got a nosebleed on his white polo? you guessed it. Buncha Farmers. Seriously do not know why I waited to get this guy until now.
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.
