My mom used this in our home when I was growing up and I now use it with my family. I love that this product is safe and I don't have to worry about toxic chemicals being used in my home. This gets out stains so well, and I love knowing that I can keep my family's clothes clean, especially with 2 little boys!
An Absolute Must Have
A while back my daughter was putting her sheets in the laundry when she realized that blood from a cut she had gotten earlier that week had seeped through the sheets and had even stained the mattress. Now dry, I was unsure how to clean it and was venting to a friend who brought me a sample. I sprayed the area and let it sit a few minutes. Then wiped with a hand towel and repeated. Not only were the sheets saved but the mattress we had JUST PURCHASED for her a month prior was saved also! To this day you cannot tell where the stain was!!!
I recently heard they now have this product in a gel form with a "scrubber" on the cap which I hope to try soon!! The one I tried is the product pictured here and is sold in a concentrate form. You use about a quarter of the product & fill the remaining amount noted on the sprayer with water.
It is extremely cost effective and delivers on what it says it will do. Extremely useful if you have children in the home!
If you have kids you should use this.
I have three children. I use this every time I wash clothes now. Gets my kids clothes clean and I don't have to worry about what craft project they are doing is going to ruin their clothes. I feel confident that the stains will come out. I like how easy it is to use and that you can get refills and not have to buy more spray bottles.
PreSpot works wonders!
Melaleuca PreSpot has become an indispensable part of my laundry routine, earning its rightful place there by consistently living up to its promises of removing even the hardest stains, like blood, milk, and baby poop. Just a good spritz or two directly on the stain about five minutes before washing, and voila! Stain is gone!
PreSpot gets its cleaning power from natural enzymes that attack stains by basically consuming them, breaking them down into something a detergent can successfully lift and rinse away. PreSpot works similar to Bio-Kleen's Bac-out in this way, allowing for a natural approach to stain removal that is safe for you, your family, your clothes, and ultimately the environment.
Since I have small kids in the house, I always prefer to use natural non-toxic products because my kids will get into anything and everything and I'd rather be safe than sorry if they got it on their skin or in their mouths. Obviously you can't bathe in or flat drink the stuff, as that would just be unwise, but it won't kill you or cause you permanent damage if it gets on more than your stains, if you know what I mean.
We give PreSpot a run for its money in our house. Among the toughest stains--spit-up, poop, mud, blood, food, WHATEVER, we've always seen success with PreSpot. I even use it to replace Resolve in removing stains from our carpet and furniture! Just spray to soak the stain and leave it for a little bit, five or ten minutes, then come scrub it up with a clean absorbant cloth--works like a charm!
Melaleuca PreSpot has proven itself effective and valuable in our home, and is also a wise choice if you prefer sustainably-produced and concentrated cleaners--what a great way to save money and the planet!
Best stain remover I've ever used - and GREAT value!
This is the best laundry strain remover I have EVER used! First of all, I love Melaleuca. Their products are all amazing. I haven't found a single one I was impressed by, let alone happy with. All Melaleuca products are environmentally friendly (ie GREEN!) and safe for use anywhere in your home and around children and pets. As if that isn't good enough, Pre-Spot works wonders! It comes in a small bottle, in concentrated form. You simply pour about half the bottle into a large spray bottle and fill it up the rest of the way with water. Then you can use it like normal. It's as simple as that! I first thought it wasn't going to work very well since it wasn't thick or gel-like as some other stain removers are. I was wrong (don't tell Hubby!), it works better! I was previously spraying stains, and then sometimes soaking them, and then washing them. Now I only have to spritz a little, rub it in, and wash as normal. My 8 month old makes a lot of messes. Baby food stains can be pretty difficult, along with diaper leaks. It seems like there is nothing Pre-Spot can't get out. I recently sprayed a bib covered in strawberry juice that had been in the diaper bag overnight and dried. It came out perfectly! Pre-Spot works... EVERY time!

Cost effective, good for the environment
Melaleuca Prespot laundry stain remover has become one of my main, can't live without cleaning products. It comes in a small concentrated bottle, that makes two full size bottles of the cleaner. I use it on all of my tough to clean spots. I have had some items that I missed seeing the spot until I had already washed and dried the item. Ususally this sets the spot and it becomes difficult if not impossible to get the stain out. I have went back and sprayed the stain with the Melaleuca Prespot, let it set overnight and sometimes without even rewashing the garment the stain has disappeared!. That is amazing. I have also used the product on my carpeting to remove pet stains and spills from wine, kool-aid, coffee and juice. Each and every time I have used the prespot, I have been able to get the stain up. This is one of the most diverse and economical spot cleaners I have ever used. I can not imagine not using this product.
