I use to work for a professional dry cleaners company. I go this recipe from them.
It's for regular washing maching cleaning......
NOT FOR DRY CLEAN ITEMS !!!!!

Laundry Pre-Treater
If nothing else, you can wash out and re-use on old windex bottle or just get one of those mayo or mustard squeeze bottles.

Ingredients:
1 clean, empty bottle
1/8 of the bottle filled with Lemon Ammonia
1/8 of the bottle filled with Regular Liquid Laundry Detergent
(make sure it is not the “Bleach” added version)
Cold water

Pour in ammonia first, then laundry detergent, then “slowly” add in the cold water.
Swirl gently till all ingredients are will combined.
Use this to saturate all garments with stains (except silk, or other such extremely delicate fabrics)
Saturate stains, let sit for a while, and then launder in hottest temp possible for that clothing.
This will remove even OLD blood stains.

Often the longer the pre-treater can stay on the fabric the better it will work.

Thanks, I'll have to let my sister know. When she washes my nieces clothes she uses almost a whole a bottle of Zout.

THank You!!!!! I use fels-naptha soap for most of my stained clothing, but it requires a lot of time and energy hand scrubbing, which I don't always have.

I'm getting the ingredients for this this weekend!
