Ive got loads of clothe (kids) that i want to ebay but a few bits have stains which hav'nt come out in the wash mainly chocolate stains and tomato, what is the best thing to use to get them out, also is there anything i may have in the house/kitchen that may get the stains out?

Stick them on washing line for a few days? Sunlight should shift it

I use the vanish on a stick. wet the garmet, smoother it with the stick, then leave it in the sun to dry. then wash it. magic, gone! alwasy works, even with mildew!

Sunlight sounds good but not much of it ATM

Hmm good point Nah should still work even if overcast otherwise it has to be Vanish in a tube with the scrubby brush on the end, great stuff!

Chocolate is very difficult to shift. Vanish liquid/gel is the best thing I've found for it. I apply it directly beofre washing the garment. Oxi-clean spray works for just about everything else. But washed-in stains are sometimes impossible to shift.

I have tried all the different forms of "vanish" and been disappointed - my main probs are with food colourings on the baby clothes... anyway, found the best thing so far to be *Dylon stain remover for greasy stains* - a pre wash tube just like a pritt stick where you dab the clothes before putting into the washing machine - got mine in Woolworths
