Pretreating Laundry Stains with Dr. Bronner’s (Video)

Mothering for me has been a crash course in stain management.

I definitely underappreciated the relative stainlessness of my earlier adulthood. I expected certain obvious stain culprits – ketchup, blueberries, bodily fluids.  But others took be by surprise: bananas, watermelon, smashed peas.  And then there was that time a green crayon found its way into the dryer…

All that to say, I’ve spent a lot of time on this.  And the best way I’ve found to eliminate stains is with pure Dr. Bronner’s Sal Suds directly on the stain.

The earlier you can get it on, and the longer you can let it sit, the better the results.  But this has even worked on set-in stains that I’ve been slow to discover.

Check it out in this video:

  1. Love doing laundry w Sal’s suds. My husband treats his work & hunting stains w Sal’s suds and he was amazed how well it worked. I will remind him to pour it from the measured amount like u suggested.

  2. This post came at a perfect time for me because I have a lot of clothes to wash. Sals Suds and Castile soap really does work on stains! One day, my son’s favorite white sleeved jacket was covered in mud stains and pencil and pen marks and nothing helped. That was until I pulled out the Sals Suds and gave it a try. Sals Suds came to the rescue! I rinsed out the dirt in cold water and then I poured sals suds directly on the stains, just like Lisa did. I hang dry a lot of our clothes in the sunshine and I think it helps brighten and freshen them, and they last longer and look nicer. I’ve also been putting lemon peels in my vinegar bottle that I use in my rinse cycles. I like Lisa’s big bottle of Sals Suds with the pump so I’m going to order that, along with some lavender Castile soap. Thanks for the video!

    Have a nice Mothers Day and a happy Spring!

    • Fantastic, Priscilla! Sal Suds to the rescue once again!

  3. Is the gallon sal suds available with a pump? If not, where would I find one like you are using in the video?

    • Hi Lesley – No, we don’t sell the pump, but I highly recommend it. I bought mine online for not very much.
