    It's called "Totally Toddler", and it is great for all kinds of spots.
    Does it work for a blemish on one's record?

When my son was a soft drinking nut (loved Big Red), he had several stains in his white shirts despite multiple washings, but I couldn't get rid of them until I used the "Totally Toddler". A friend of mine had a gravy stain on her white linen, holiday tablecloth for about 5 years, and couldn't get rid of it. She said she would always just place something over it when she had people in. She used the Totally Toddler, and it vanished! She was amazed...so was I. It is sold at Toys R Us in the baby section, last I saw, and you need to follow the directions as closely as possible, and wash your items in water as warm as your clothes will tolerate. You can save favorite baby clothes, as well as your own. I keep a jug on hand.
    How is it I've never heard of this before? I've used Goo Gone for years, but sometimes that doesn't work on certain stains. Totally Toddler sounds like something I need to keep on hand. Thanks for the suggestion.

    Well, we broke down and bought an artificial tree at Costco last weekend, and we're thrilled. Because of the discussions upthread, while at the store we took a bulb out to see if the other lights would stay lit, and they did, so we got it. It's so great not to have to worry about crawling under the tree daily to water it, and we can put it up when we want, and take it down when we want, instead of trying to decide how long a live tree will last.

    A couple people I know swear by OxyClean or whatever. They've gotten really dark or old stains out of linens and antique tablecloths with it, etc.

    That's exactly why I LOVE my artificial tree, roseskid. We like ours up a long time, because we love the Christmas season..goes way too quickly! We had ours up the day after Thanksgiving.

    Angelic_one! Yes, it's been grand. However, every morning when I come downstairs I still catch myself thinking I should check the water level. We originally bought a 6' tree because I'm not a big spender, but after we got it home we changed our minds and upgraded to the 9' because we've got vaulted ceilings and it just looked better. Our college daughter has always hated the idea of an artificial tree, but since she's gone now and we're the ones doing the dirty work, she lost her vote.

    I have a knit top that I bought off a sale rack about five years ago. It's a nice top and I like it a lot but it had a small, finger nail size, rust like stain on the back shoulder blade area. I just wore it anyway but usually unde a jacket. One of my friends was talkig about OxyClean and I wondered aloud if it would work on my top. She gave me a small jar full and I used it. That spot disappeared. I use it often now, especially on the kids t shirts. I wore that top constantly this summer.

    I love Oxyclean, too. I've used it for years. The science behind it made sense to me. It is great for carpet stains, too.

    With the Totally Toddler, you may want to use it more than once if the stain is persistant.

    I also use Oxyclean a lot and it has never failed me.

    When I was at my granddaughter's baby shower, someone gave a bottle of Dreft stain remover. There is a laundry detergent, Dreft, that is supposed to be great for washing baby laundry. (News to me!) All the women were raving about this Dreft stuff. So I decided to buy some and keep it on hand for when I had the baby visiting us. I also decided to use it on some of our old baby clothes that were still in great condition.

    I had one particularly grossly stained sleeper (I was not planning on giving it to the baby!) I just wanted to see if Dreft would get out this really, really old stain. I was floored when it came out of the wash looking brand-spanking new!

    Now I keep a bottle on hand and use it often for any kind of stain. It really works!

    I've been using this instead of Woolite for years on my delicates! I had read somewhere that it was intended for baby clothes, so I figured it must be good for adult clothes as well. The detergent works great, so I will have to try your tip. Thanks all!

    And now for something completely different . . .

    I just got back from the Wichita Grand Opera's performance of La Traviata, and I am completely blown away by the soprano, Cristina Nassif (that's her in my avatar.) Aside from being a beautiful woman , she has a wonderful voice and good stage presence. She more than made up for the tenor's voice getting lost behind the orchestration. If and when she returns to this neck of the woods, I'm springing for seats much closer to the stage
