Is Oxyclean available anywhere? I didn't see it at Costco.

The main cleaning component in Oxyclean is hydrogen peroxide. We buy it by the case @ costco and just fill the reservoir of our washer. Big $ savings and cleaner clothes.

Comments, please? I have tried every variety of OxyClean, and it is no better than soap, as far as I'm concerned.

It works for us but we put the clothes in the washer with soap AND oxyclean, fill the washer, let is swish around to mix everything and then turn the washing machine off and let it sit for about half an hour before starting it up again.

That he was. Letting the OxyClean sit for a while belies the TV commercials, especially the ones where the gals drop a completely stained piece of clothing in it and voila! out it comes white.

I am using those ZOTE soapflakes, along with non-chlorine bleach, and letting everything sit for half an hour, too.

The only two real stain removers I have ever found are barsoap Vanish, which works (while every other Vanish product I've tried does not), and Zout, which you can get in the red sprayon bottle at SuperLake and sometimes WalMart (not cheap, but it actually removes stains).

You have to be very careful not to injure the frog.

And again "say what?"...don't get the frog part. Thrush is another word for a Candida (fungal) infection.

You're right Helperguy...it does go against the commercials., but it works for me. Maybe something to do with the hardness of the water here. For stains, try the Zote white Bar Soap.

It's the soft part at the back of the hoof that can be very tender at times. Have to be careful with the back nails and that the shoe is big enough for the hoof. A clean frog prevents thrush.

The best stain remover I have found here is the Zote soap that the Mexicans use. It has removed, dried in grease stains, tomato stains, dye transfer stains etc. Wet the article, rub in some Zote, toss in the washer. The stuff has been magical..even removing stains that are years old and have been washed and dried umpteen times already. Don't even ask why I have stuff with stains that old..I'm an eternal optimist, always thinking I'll find a solution to a favorite article of clothing that is stained. And then I did.

Is there another variety of Zote that Mexicans don't use that is used by other nationalities. scratch
I thought Zote had universal appeal (in Mexico), but I'm no soap expert. Very Happy

I love zote. It gets out so many stains, including blood. Also, my little niece came to visit and we bought her one of those pretty little white cotton hand embroidered dresses. She got ketchup down the front of it, but we didn't see it right away. My sister was sure it was ruined. I told her to follow me, I'd introduce her to zote. I washed the dress and every trace of the ketchup came out. My sister was certainly impressed.

I'm a klutz and spill stuff on myself all the time. zote saves my clothes!

Also, the different Vanish powders do work like Oxyclean. They whiten and brighten clothes. I never found Oxyclean to actually get stains out that well.
