When I am washing clothing, I use the Tide Free which has no colorings or fragrances, yet I find that I still often have stains on my clothing that do not come out. What laundry detergents do you use on your clothing? What things do you use to get out stains? Does anything get stains out of clothing that has already been washed and dried or is it a lost cause?

I use a local brand of soap or Tide then I incorporate baking soda and vinegar into it. So far it works nice and my clothes smells fresher.

For any stains I get on clothing I use a product called "Zout". It is about the best stain remover I have come across. It does work on getting stains out of clothing that has already been washed and dried depending on what type of stain it is. Some stores don't carry it so you might need to shop around a little. It can be found on the aisle with the other stain removers and laundry soap.
