We just love these new Laundry Stain Sticks that we've added to our line of handmade soaps. They work wonders on all kinds of stains, and being an active household with many indoor and outdoor projects always on the go (i.e. paint spills, food stains, etc) we were pleased to see this stain stick coming to many good uses. We tried the stain stick out on our daughter's favourite handmade doll today. The much-loved doll (Martha) has seen better days - she had pen and marker stains on her cloth face and arms. We simply pre-scrubbed the stains on her with the stain stick soap, then added her into the washing machine for a regular cycle of laundry. She came out almost as good as new - nearly unrecognizable!
If you want to venture into making your own laundry soap you can read about how to make a handmade laundry liquid soap on our post here. We do still use this handmade laundry soap, but lately have been trying out an eco laundry ball (you get 365 washes with one ball) given to us by a friend. This ball uses mineral-derived ceramic beads and magnets inside the ball to help clean, oxygenate the water and eliminate germs. We are quite impressed!
Our Laundry Stain Sticks were featured in the March 2014 issue of Creating Vintage Charm magazine (see the page preview here)! They look so great next to the washboard, metal wash tub, and wooden clothes pegs.
