Dirty laundry?

Now that we're switching from grass stains to mud puddles . . . the dirty laundry just keeps piling up. Do you use those laundry stain sticks to clean up the tough messes?

You might be interested to know that a good old bar of handmade soap does a great job on those tough stains, and it's already sitting in your shower. I've found it works great on just about everything - from greasy food stains, wine spills, outdoor play time, to blood streaks.  Just dampen the clothing, rub in a bar of soap all over the stain, and keep rubbing a bit, sudsing up and re-wetting if needed until the stain begins to fade out.  Takes just a few seconds.  Then throw it in the laundry load and you're good to go.  Just like a stain stick only a whole lot cheaper, more effective and nothing chemical. Bingo!
