Zout Stain Remover Review - I Depend On It In My Home
Latasha has shared her Zout stain remover review.
I have used Zout for years. I have tried many stain removers, including Shout, Spray and Wash and numerous store brands. I have had the best results from Zout and we have a big variety of stains including oil, food, make up and dirt.
Zout uses a triple enzyme formula to fight stains. The enzyme formula is formulated to fight protein, oil and starch stains and accommodate a variety of fabrics.
It comes in a 22 ounce liquid spray, foam spray and a 12 and 16 ounce liquid squeeze bottle. The price is comparable to other brand stain removers at approximately three to four dollars per bottle.
To use Zout you simply apply to the stain, wait five minutes, then launder. It is water based, biodegradable, non-corrosive and nonflammable. It will not alter the flame retardant in children’s sleepwear and is safe for colorfast washables.
When I use Zout stain remover the stain is always gone. I really depend on it. Also, it does not have a harsh odor nor is an odor left on the clothing after laundering. I have noticed an odor after laundering with other brands.
We have not experienced any allergic reactions or dermatologic problems while using Zout. I think Zout is great as a stain remover and its addition to Purex laundry detergent was a great idea.
Thanks again for another great review, this time of Zout stain remover, Latasha! I really appreciate all the reviews and information you've provided for this site.
Just as Latasha said, one of the best things about Zout is its enzyme action, which really helps remove a lot of tough protein stains.
Zout is made by the same company which makes Purex laundry detergent. I am a Purex Insider, which means I get some inside information about the newest products coming out, and things like that. In addition, I am sometimes provided with products to test, for my opinion about them.
However, I have not received any Zout to test, and this review was from Latasha, and not myself, so the opinions expressed are hers.
I would love to hear from even more people, sharing their reviews of this laundry stain remover. You can share your laundry stain removers review here, for this or another brand, sharing what you use to pretreat your clothes before washing them to remove stains. You can also read even more reviews already submitted.
Well for any red dye type stains she would use Zout, but before applying the Zout she recommended sponging the stain with white vinegar, rinsing, then use the Zout, washing it with a non chlorine bleach, and detergent.
While I did have to run the shirt through the wash twice, the stain was totally removed.
Maybe if I had noticed the stain right away I would have gotten it out in one wash.
I was relieved that it came out at all as some medicine stains are permanent.
If I do any more baby sitting I will remember to check for stains on both the front and back of my clothes before throwing them in the hamper!
In addition after my friend told me about all of the stains she has successfully removed with the Zout (baby formula, baby food, blood, fruit juice, etc) I know it will become a permanent part of my laundry supplies.
I can't think of a better source for getting stains out of laundry than someone who deals with stains on a daily basis!
Everyone has different methods of dealing with stains.
My sister was cleaning out her son's closet about a month ago and came across a shirt that had a large unknown red stain on it, most likely juice.
Since she does not have the issue with dyes and perfumes when it comes to the laundry, she saturated the stain with ZOUT pretreater spray, then washed with Wisk.
If I had not been at her house when this went down I probably would not have believed that it came out in one wash.
She depends on ZOUT for all kinds of stains, grass and blood to name a few, but when there are a lot of really dirty and stained clothes she is also a fan of the OXI Clean powder for pre soaking and washing.
Most of the time I use it as a pretreater, but some times I will even soak the garment in a bucket (gallon) of water with about an ounce of Zout.
One of my friends told me about how she got out some stubborn tomato sauce stains by soaking, because I would not have thought of using this product as a soaker.
I was able to save one of the shirts I wear to work that had a nasty formula stain which was not pretreated, and made it through the dryer.
I would caution that you should do a colorfast test if you are going to use Zout as a soaker, but in my case if I could not remove the stain I was not going to be able to wear it to the office again so I took the risk.
