Theresa shared this quick tip about how her Mom used to use Wisk for laundry stain removal.
My Mother always used this detergent to pre-treat stains. She did this while at the laundromat so it did not sit very long. She got amazing results.
I would love for you to test this as a pre-treater on different soils.
I will add though that my Mother has always put this in her own bottle for better control of dispensing.
It is funny you mentioned that Theresa, because my Mom actually did the exact same thing, and with this same detergent.
When I was little I remember the liquid being blue, and she also put it into a squeeze bottle so she could apply a small amount directly to stains on clothing before she placed them in the washing machine.
You've got a great idea of an experiment I'd like to try sometime -- using various laundry detergents as pretreaters, and finding out which ones work best for the task! Thanks for the idea.
I Agree With Using Wisk As Pretreater From Separate Bottle

I agree you should pour off a small amount of Wisk, or for that matter any detergent you favor to use as a pretreater.
I tend to re-use a small dishwashing liquid bottle.
It really eliminates waste of pouring directly from the large bottle or from the measuring cap and the application is truly a direct hit on the stain.
Wisk works well on the variety of stains I encounter on my uniforms I wear at the restaurant, including the most common ones like coffee and tomato based stains. It is also great on pre-treating collars.
It is great starting my shift with a clean crisp uniform.
Thanks for this great tip for laundry! I love the idea of re-using a cleaning bottle that you would otherwise throw away.
I also appreciate you sharing what stains you've found are removed by pretreating with this detergent. I'd love to hear from others sharing what spots you've removed as well. You can share your own reviews and experiences here.
Finally, please note that readers have not only told me that this product is great for pretreating, but also it's great for presoaking stains (shared by a reader who was reviewing the free and clear version).
