It is so irritating when you get a stain on your favorite piece of clothing only to end up with that you have to live with it, because there is no detergent out there that will remove it by 100%. Well, when I bought this Arm and Hammer Super Washing Soda Detergent and used it for the first time, I had got a huge stain on a white top and the stain was from chocolate ice cream. Since I love the top I tossed it into a bucket and soaked it in warm water before I washed it together with this soda detergent, and I was so surprised when I saw that the whole stain was gone when it was all dried. I mean, I have never seen that before, like having a stain like that coming out right away so you can think I was happy. Now I always use this soda detergent and I can use it as a liquid, just mix it with some water, or I can use it dry just like it is. The next best thing with this detergent is that it is so affordable, it doesn't cost much at all and a little goes a long way plus that it is so versatile and can be used in more then one way. Thumbs up for this awesome product from Arm and Hammer!
