Jenna shared this great experience with Biz detergent with me, telling me how it worked for her.
I love, love, love Biz!
I first discovered Biz when I lived in Southern Cali. I had gotten ketchup on a white t-shirt and my roommate told me to soak it in some of her Biz overnight. Much to my delight the stain was gone from my shirt in the morning. I was a convert right there.
I moved back to New England a few years ago and was unable to find Biz at any local or chain stores. Then one day while at a Big Lots there it was on the shelf. They had 6 boxes and I bought every one of them!! Thankfully they still get shipments but I still buy it in massive quantity's lest they ever stop carrying it.
My best Biz moment was with a dress I purchased at a thrift shop. It was from a high end designer that Kate Middleton tends to wear often. Tunic style evening dress of cream silk with gold beading and an awesome low cut back.
Oh did I forget to mention that it was actually a dingy gray with a gigantic coffee stain down the front and side or the severe yellowing of the underarms? Silly me! They wanted $15 for the dress and when I pointed out all the staining they said $3. Sold!
I brought it home, whipped up my bucket of Biz and soaked the dress overnight. When I rinsed it out the next morning and hung it up to dry I actually danced. All the stains and dinginess were gone. I salvaged an $800 dress!
I regret that I didn't take a before and after picture to share, but I will in the future. I truly believe that if Biz can't take out a stain nothing will.
Wow! That's a really awesome example of how well this product can work to remove stains. Thanks so much for sharing this story with me!
I'd love to hear even more experiences people have had, good or bad, with this stain remover (which isn't actually a detergent on its own). You can share your Biz review or experience here, or read even more reviews that have already been submitted.
Further, Biz detergent is both a color safe bleach and enzymatic stain remover. You can share your non-chlorine bleach review here, for this or any other such bleach, or read other reviews that have already been shared.
Biz Is One Of The Best Stain Remover Products On The Market
(Cincinnati, OH, United States)
Alisia shared how she's used Biz for her family's laundry stains.
I became a mom and the head of the household earlier this year, which included the daunting task of the family laundry. I am encountering hundreds of stains a month from baby spit up, food, dirt etc. on my sons clothes to wine spills, ink spots and more on my husband's clothes.
A friend told me about Biz Stain Fighter and it was a prayer answered. I use it to pre-treat all my stains before I put them in the laundry and it has worked for me on even the toughest stains.
I really agree that BIZ is a terrific laundry booster for white clothing. If a friend of mine had not mentioned this product to me I would not have known it existed.
I wash a lot of white shirts that have care labels indicating "use non chlorine bleach if needed." Well they really do need the non chlorine bleach, else they don't come out bright and stain free.
My experience is that a new white shirt will only look new for about 10 washings if I only use detergent and no other additives.
I pretreat the collars and cuffs, and any other stains, with Biz liquid before I throw them in the washer.
It has worked well on a variety of stains including milk, coffee, ketchup, and blood. They come out nice and white.
For some reason though most stores in my area that carry BIZ always place it on an area of the shelf where it may not be readily seen. It must have something to do with competition for the "eye level placement" for better sales.
I recently noticed that the BIZ powder is now packaged in an orange box instead of the old blue carton, so the liquid may have new packaging soon as well.
Also had 1 shirt with a soft drink stain that I was able to remove by mixing up a paste of BIZ and water, applied it to the stain, let it sit for about a half hour, and then threw it in with a load of clothes.
I have also used it to presoak some nasty grass, blood, and dirt stains on gym clothes that tend not to make it home until several days after they were incurred.
It is also a terrific additive for white laundry even if there are no stains, e.g. white T shirts and socks.
I have a friend who works in a hospital that washes all of her uniforms with BIZ powder and detergent. She said that you really can't tell the difference between one of her new uniforms and one that has been through the wash 20 times. She attributes that to BIZ and allowing them to be line dried.
Biz Powder Is My Favorite Presoaker and Booster For the Wash
I work in a produce market and tend to acquire many fruit and vegetable stains on my clothes. These stains are equivalent to a dye, e.g. red, green, etc. I presoak and wash these garments with Biz powder. It is the most powerful stain fighter I have ever used.
In addition my son wears white shirts to school and of course now that the weather is colder long sleeves are appropriate. Even if there are no stains on the front of the shirts, the sleeves are always dirty, and many times stained. Biz is great at keeping these shirts white. Once again my approach is to presoak and also wash with Biz powder.
I sure can relate to Wanda's situation. I have several robes, and at least one is in pre soak status due to spit ups and/or baby food stains.
I really like using BIZ as a presoak and as an added booster to the wash.
So far I have not encountered a stain that it did not work well on.
It also takes out the nasty odors that are associated with the above stains.
Before I started using this product I was using various pretreaters. While they helped in removing stains, they were never able to do a complete job unless I applied them immediately after the stain occurred and washed the same day.
I note that with the benefit of presoaking it really works miracles on even older stains because as much as I try to keep pace with the laundry, there are weeks when it it just impossible!
I would definitely let them air dry, and repeat the above process if needed.
I have had my share of badly stained laundry, as when my son returned from camp. You name it -- mud, grass, food, sweat, it was there and it was up to 2 weeks old.
Aside from the stains, the smells were really offensive!
The only stain I could not remove soaking with this product and washing was some kind of paint, but I later used some paint thinner, several different applications, and I got that out as well.
BIZ is the best stain soaker I have ever used. It became a staple in my laundry room when my son was younger as it saved a lot of clothes (both his and ours) that were stained with baby food and formula.
I add it to the wash when I do a load of white shirts, even on the rare occasion there are no stains, as it is a great whitener.
It is one of the few products I buy that lives up to what the package claims it will do.
Biz Has Worked For Years! It's A Miracle For Presoaking
by Carol Z
Carol shared how she's been using this stain remover for years.
30 some years ago I worked in the kitchen of a restaurant. Lots of grease, salad dressing, chilli, etc., on my white tops. They were looking kinda stained and dingy.
I got an idea. When I got home I would throw the top in a bucket that was filled with water (okay, it was a used pickle barrel with a top--free from the restaurant. Empty kitty litter buckets work too. Try any kind of free bucket with a cover!) and Biz. Just put the cover on the bucket.
Every day another top would go in. And a little extra Biz. Every 3 or 4 days I would do laundry. Draining the water and Biz out of the bucket, I just dumped the wet stuff--no rinsing or anything--into the washing machine.
My white tops began to get very white and clean looking. After a month of this, they looked brand new when I put them on!
This worked on cotton and synthetic fabrics.
After this, I could not stop! Now Biz just goes in the washing machine with my regular detergent. And those yucky set in stains (well, they do happen), then I go back to the bucket.
Lovely, and can be used on colored materials safe for washing, too.
Over 30 years is a miracle!
