I’m here from Breaktime.
I’m caring for my mom. She is 86 and in assisted living. They have laundry service there but she doesn’t like them doing hers, so I do it for her. Often she’ll wear the same few tops for a few weeks then finally ask me to wash one. They always have stains on the front from food. The problem is that I can’t get the stains out. I’ve tried different detergents, Biz, and Shout. I’ve tried soaking, cold, warm, and hot water (on different items).
The stains bother both of us because she was a terrific mom and housekeeper, but I’m stuck about what to do. I’ve tried, of course, to get ahold of the clothes more often but it’s not working. Any advice on how to remove old food stains?
