Make Laundry Doable With These Powerful Problem-Solvers

It’s a good thing there are people who spend time coming up with innovations for fighting stains and washing denim – if I hadn’t been given a talking-to, all those Hanky Pankys would still be going in the wash with my T-shirts and boxers.

On Better TV today, SheFinds shows you the latest and greatest laundry solutions for whatever washable problem you’ve got, from creating a more eco-friendly laundry room to tackling that stain while you’re out on a date.
 
For fast stain fixes:
OxiClean Spray-A-Way Instant Stain Remover ($4.99) and Tide To Go's Instant Stain Remover Pen ($6.99 for three) both mimic the tried-and-true stain-fighters in their bulkier OxiClean and Tide cousins, and both are small enough to stash in a clutch on date night.

For those can’t-put-it-in-the-regular-wash items:
You can’t very well throw grandma’s vintage tablecloths into the spin cycle. Instead, try Hillhouse Naturals’ gentle Linen Soak ($16) to clean your delicate linens without damaging them.

To prevent your favorite dark-wash jeans from turning into acid-wash jeans, bluwash’s formula ($18) minimizes fading by bonding to fabric and preventing harsh chemicals from wreaking havoc on your denim’s dye.

For an eco-friendlier wash:
Method Laundry Detergent ($9.99) uses natural enzymes, not harsh chemicals, to remove your stains, while Zainz Pre-Wash ($3.85) ups your stain-fighting ante with a biodegradable, plant-based formula you spray on before those dirty clothes go in the wash. A more rustic take on eco-laundry, Farmhouse Laundry Powder ($12.50), a super-concentrated detergent mad with essential oils, is packaged in a simple paper bag – more efficiency with less waste. We like it.
