I took my car to the car wash and the attendant said I needed to try L.A.'s Totally Awesome cleaner. I had never heard of it but he swore by it.
He sent me across the street to the Family Dollar store where I bought a large bottle for just $1.00. I was skeptical because I had already spent so much money on other cleaners and nothing worked.
I took it back over to the car wash and the attendant helped me and sure enough the sap came right off. Then he told me that it was all he ever used on his car, his boat and around his house.
I went home and tried it for myself on my appliances and couldn't believe how quickly it cleaned off dried food and everyday dirt. I then tried it on my counter tops and from there put it on just about every surface in my house.
It really is an awesome product and I've not found a single thing that cleans better. It's also really great because it doesn't have any harsh odors and is safe to use on just about any place that needs cleaning.
I have recommended the product to several of my friends and they have all thanked me for the suggestion. It is so affordable and easy to use and it's my only choice when it comes to cleaning my house or car.
Thanks Violet for sharing your review of LA's Totally Awesome all purpose cleaner. I think it especially cool that you found a way to remove tree sap with it.
If other people have tips for removing tree sap from various surfaces, I would love to hear them too! You can share your sap stain removal tips here, or read other tips and tricks already submitted.
In addition, this product is advertised to be safe for lots of surfaces, and to be used as both a cleaner and stain remover, including for clothing.
I would love to hear from even more people who have used this product, on any variety of surfaces and fabrics, to share how it has worked for them, good or bad.
In addition, as a side note, I have some links above for ways to purchase this product on Amazon. However, I would suggest to people that if they can find it at their local dollar stores, where this product is mainly found in stores, I would definitely buy it there instead. The reason is that at dollar stores this product is a MUCH better deal, especially with shipping, etc.
Can you use this product to wash rugs in a washer?
I did some research about this product on the manufacturer's website, and my answer is yes, with a caveat.
The product is designed both for use to cleaning surfaces in your home as well as to be used in the laundry.
The website claims the product is safe to be used for stain removal and as a presoak for fabrics.
To the extent that yes, most fabrics can be washed with this product, yes you can wash rugs with it too.
The thing is, you've got to be careful in general, no matter what product you use, when you wash rugs in the washing machine.
Some of them are quite sturdy and also colorfast and will do just fine. Others are quite flimsy and will basically disintegrate with a heavy washing, or will bleed dye everywhere.
Further, it depends what fibers your rug is made from. If it is wool, for example, you need to be much more careful in what you use to wash it than if it's a cheap cotton blend. For delicate fibers I suggest using a delicate wash products.
I hope this answer has helped you! I've answered this question as part of the laundry questions section of the site. Pop on over and see what else I've answered, or ask me your own question.
Plus, if anyone else has suggestions for products you like to use for washing rugs I would love to hear them. You can share your tips here and I'll add them to the site!
