I had been purchasing OxiClean for a few months; and one day I saw a container of Sun Oxygen Cleaner at Walmart. Voila! There was quite a difference in price, so I bought a container of the Sun Cleaner. From what I have experienced, Sun Oxygen Cleaner works as well as OxiClean. My husband used to work in a salt mine; and his clothes were absolutely filthy and smelly. The thing I noticed most about Sun is its ability to get odors out of clothing. It does the same for that "dishtowel odor". Put one scoop with each load as a laundry booster. For tougher stains, let soak for 30 minutes. Sun Oxygen Cleaner is chlorine free and can be used on pet, coffee, food, wine, ink and other stains. Tougher stains may need a longer soak or more Sun added to the load. Sun can be used on upholstery, fabric, carpeting, kitchen floors, counters, trash cans, decks, lawn furniture, siding, etc. Follow the instructions on the container for measurements and soaking/setting times. Just make sure to check to see if the item you are treating is colorfast. **Test an inconspicuous spot first.** I give Sun Oxygen Cleaner a "thumbs-up"!
