    Anything I've used Oxyclean on got seriously faded (except, of course, whites).

    That's good to know. I've never used it, but did get a sample in my new washing machine.

    Interesting, I dont think I've ever had a fading problem with Oxyclean. I have used it on tricky stains, but I have never soaked for multiple days, but definitely for several hours. For really tough ones I usually fill up the sink and dump a bunch of the powdered Oxyclean in to dissolve and the scrub the stain really well in the solution, sometimes directly scrubbing the Oxyclean into it. I HAVE NOT ever done this with anything delicate - only to get tough stains out of kids clothes, grass/dirt stains out of sports gear, etc. Also, If you use a lot of Oxyclean I recommend using rubber gloves because it is REALLY hard on your skin.

    With colors, I usually prefer to use Totally Toddler. Sometimes it's quick, and sometimes it requires repeated, creative treatments, but I usually meet with success.

It left horrid orange (copper-coloured ) stains that are damn near impossible to remove. I haven't been home much as we've been travelling quite a bit this summer, but when I have a chance I'm going to try one more time to save my golf shirt with Shout, as I see they have a set-in stain product. I'm never using anything but Neutrogena sunscreen again, and I plan to email Coppertone or whoever manufactures it. It does say on the bottle that it "may" stain clothes but this is ridiculous - it stained every fabric it touched, from my golf shirt (a poly blend) the t-shirts (cotton) and my bathing suit (spandex blend). I'm beyond pissed. We had used both the bottle stuff and the new spray-on type, both kinds stain.
    I have used the shout gel that's for set-in stains and had very good success with it. It's taken grease stains out that went through the dryer even. It's taken out chocolate stains, which I have never been able to get out before. I recommend it.

    I use Simple Green for getting out really tough and set in stains, grass, grease, chocolate, blood, etc. It is in concentrated form and you dilute it in water, but I use full concentrate for most stains. You can usually find it in the automotive section at most stores.

    Me too - Simple Green is a good laundry additive especially for grass stains. I have had good luck with Goo Gone for other stains like pen or chocolate. And Goo Gone is great with sticker residue if you accidentally wash a sticker on clothes (my kids used to leave them on their tshirts).

    Motorcycles
    I am looking at a 2009 Yamaha V Star 1100 Custom and a 2010 Harley Davidson FXDC Super Glide Custom. I am not concerned about pricing, just if anyone knows which will require less maintenance in the long run or if someone has either and can give me a few thoughts. Both bikes fit me.

    Does anyone have an opinion about the Mr. Clean Magic Eraser? I thought it would be handy to keep by the sink for quick kitchen cleanups. I had it about two days, and then I noticed that it was raggedy and about to fall apart. My husband had used it for some job. All I can say is, that thing isn't very sturdy! I think I should have stuck with an ordinary sponge.
