Shout Advanced Ultra Gel Works Wonders For Set-In Stains
by Ray N.
Ray shared his experience with Shout Advanced Ultra Gel stain remover.
Recently, I had dinner out and I spilled some melted butter on my favorite jacket. I used a stain remover that I had in the house, then washed the jacket and put it in the dryer. BIG MISTAKE!!! The stain was set and I could not get it out.
I thought I was going to have to throw the jacket away. Yesterday I went shopping and found the Shout Advanced Gel for set-in stains.
To make a long story short, I followed the directions and incredibly the stains were gone. What a fantastic product!!! Best stain remover I have ever tried. Thank you for saving my jacket.
Thanks Ray for sharing how this product worked for you. Set-in stains, especially ones that have been through the dryer, are often very difficult to remove.
I'd love to hear from even more people who have used this product, to hear what stains they've removed with it, and how it's worked for them. You can share your laundry stain removers review here, telling me which product you think is best, and why.
Shout Advanced Ultra Gel Spray Stain Remover Review
Heidi shared her review of Shout Advanced Ultra Gel, in the spray bottle. She shared her opinion with me after I asked her what her favorite laundry stain remover was, when she was sharing a Fab laundry detergent review.
This is my stain remover of choice.
I have an HE machine and it is so far the only one I have found marked for HE in my area.
I do not have to use it often, but when I do, it does a decent job.
Thanks Heidi for your Shout stain remover review.
I guess I would call saying that it does a "decent job" faint praise.
It is interesting that you mention it says it is HE compatible. I honestly hadn't thought too much about the need for things besides laundry detergent to be HE compatible, but I guess now that I think about it, all laundry supplies you use in the washing machine must be.
Has anyone else found other laundry stain removers which are HE compatible that they like to use? Or, do you have an HE machine and use a stain remover without problems, even though it doesn't specifically mention being HE compatible? I would love to hear from you. You can share your laundry stain removers review here, or read other reviews, of other brands, which have already been submitted.
In addition, Heidi has provided a couple of other reviews for this site. You can read her additional reviews here:
One thing I noted in one of your comments was the ease of pretreating and throwing in the hamper and washing later. For the most part I agree whole heartedly but the instructions on the package indicate that when pretreating bright colors or khaki garments the product should not be left on for long periods.
I found out the hard way with one of my son's bright red shirts which wound up with a blotch where I had pretreated a juice stain, tossed in the hamper and washed 3 days later.
For very bad (dye type) stains like grape juice I will pretreat as soon as I can, drop it in the hamper, then apply a fresh dose of Shout right before washing.
Shout is my #1 ally for stain removal.
It has saved me both time in the laundry room and money that would have been spent on more clothes.
Thanks for telling me which types of stains you've successfully removed with this product! That is always helpful to others when looking for a product that can help them with their own spots and spills.
With many types of pretreating products leaving it on for several days is perfectly fine, but with others it can cause a problem of bleaching or lightening the area where it is applied if left on to long, just as you described.
In addition, I like the tip for laundry that you shared of having the separate hamper for stained items. I often forget I have a stain, and then don't check it when it comes out of the washer and put it in the dryer, and we all know if its not removed the dryer will set the spots making them much harder to remove!
Most of my daily stains are coffee, tea, and soft drink, though I have also removed tomato based stains with the Shout.
For really greasy stains like cooking oil I also sponge the stain with Lestoil about 15 minutes before I throw it in the wash.
Most of my co workers use some form of Shout, and it was one of the more seasoned that suggested Lestoil for grease stains.
While I had heard of Lestoil I thought it was only used to clean floors.
One of our crew members said that she uses dishwashing liquid for greasy stains, though it sounds logical I probably won't try it unless I run short on Lestoil, since I know the Lestoil truly does the job.
I use a lot of the Shout Gel, mainly on baby clothes, and can no longer find the bottles used for refilling the original container.
These used to save me a few dollars. Are they still available?
Thanks for your question Kay. I did some research for you and found that the refills for the gel version have been discontinued, but they still have refills for the original trigger formula.
I hate it when they stop making something I use, so I know it is disappointing, but at least they still make the product itself, just not the refill bottles.
I've answered this question as part of the site where readers ask me for laundry help. Come on over and see what else I've answered, or ask me your own question!
***Update: Kay responded, once I answered her question, and she said:
Although most stores only carry the 14 ounce size I have been able to locate a 22 ounce bottle at Target. Even though this is still not as good a deal as the refill bottles it is less expensive than the 14 ounce bottle.
I also use the Shout Gel that comes with a small brush that you can use to work the gel into the stain. It also works quite well on baby food, formula, and juice stains.
When we travel away from home for several days I always pack a bottle of this pretreater. Although there is a lot of laundry catch up to do upon return, at least I know the stains have not had a chance to set.
Lisa shared this review on the site's Facebook fan page, and then graciously agreed to let me put it up on the site too.
This is the only one I use. I love it because it can sit on the stain for about a week.
My daughter is almost five, been using since she was born and I have NEVER had a piece of her clothing ruined by a stain.
I can let her wear her "nice" clothes to school and whatever comes home on them I just spray with the Shout and toss it in the hamper, then wash as usual that weekend. LOVE this stuff!
I told Lisa on the site that her review just about sold me on this product, just by itself! I have three kids too and I know what she means about "nice" clothes and stains. They seem to be attracted to one another.
I also like to be able to pretreat stains as I see them and then be able to wash the item with everything else in the wash instead of having to stop everything and throw that one item in the wash by itself.
I would love to hear from even more people who have used this laundry stain remover to share with me how you like it. You can share your laundry stain removers review here, telling me about this or any other product and how it has worked for you, good or bad.
