I like it.....seems to really cut through stuff well. If you have something REALLY greasy, just treat and let set overnight.doolittle said:Interesting recipe I'll have to give it a try. I make a stain stick with a different recipe and it works great. Can't wait to try this one.
I've used it on my dark colored clothes and haven't noticed any fading or spotting.digit said:I also find this interesting. Thank you for the reformulation and sharing it!!
Have you found this to be color safe and effective in cold water?
Thanks Mike. I think I will give this a try soon.MikeInPdx said:I've used it on my dark colored clothes and haven't noticed any fading or spotting.
I've used it on stuff I put through a cold water wash and it worked fine,
Good to know! Thanks for sharing! I won't fuss over it as much next time.happyday said:Mike, my stain sticks are almost the same recipe, but with 1/2 cup Borax added to the recipe. I'm a great believer in "the easier the better" so I don't wait till trace to add anything -- I just throw the lard, borax, lye water and turpenoid all together and SB to medium trace. And I discount the water heavily -- just over 3-1/2 oz of H2O to the 1 lb of oils.
I don't think it would cause any kind of problemsSoSoapy said:I currently have an over-abundance of beef tallow right now.
I wonder if I could substitute the lard for tallow? anyone ever try this with tallow?
