For a while I’ve been looking for a more sustainable and eco-friendly alternative to stain removers. I’m super clumsy and spill everything on me constantly, coffee, tomato sauce, you name it. That actually reminds me, I went to the Australian Open and had the ketchup pointing the wrong way and it went over my entire white t-shirt. The strangest thing was that I had packed another white t-shirt in Jim’s back. It was almost like I knew I would spill something!
I used to use the classic Vanish gold which can be very pricey in the supermarket. That was my go-to, add a couple of scoops onto a white hot wash and good to go. Since I’ve been looking more into sustainable laundry products including switching over to and eco-friendly washing powder which I’ll publish in another blog post, I’ve been looking for a couple of alternatives.
My two favourite eco-friendly laundry stain removers have to be Earth Choice Ultra Power Stain Remover and ecostore Laundry Soaker & Stain Remover.
Earth Choice Ultra Power Stain Remover
I’m a huge fan of the Earth Choice Range as their products are still affordable compare to other sustainable products. The Earth Choice Power Stain Remover is a spray that should usually be applied to the product before you place into the wash. I’ve used this product a number of times to remove food stains, coffee stains and blood when my partner had a nosebleed all over his white Ralph Lauren t-shirt. I would say it’s probably not as strong as other stain removers but has a very pleasant smell and without a doubt much softer on our clothes. Vanish used to leave my products really dry! Big fan of this stain remover if you are looking for a product you want to apply to clothes before entering the wash 🙂
Ecostore Laundry Soaker & Stain Remover
Where do I start with ecostore, I loveeee their products! They use very minimal ingredients which I’m a big fan of. If I’m unsure on the ingredients in laundry products I start to wonder, what on earth is this I’m putting onto my clothes which I am then wearing! Ecostore’s laundry soaker and stain remover I use for all my heavy washing that need a lot of brighting and a bit of love. I’m a massive clean freak so having a stain remover is a must for my beddings and white towels. I absolutely love the aesthetic of fresh white bedding and towels, it brightens all of my apartment up. This product is brilliant for putting in the wash with your bedding, towels or white. You just need to add a tablespoon and a half for a heavy washing load. Where possible try to reduce the heat on your washing machine, it will save your energy and in result.. the planet 😉
