6 Stain-Busters That Really Work
Gentle Laundry Detergents
Problem: You've got a tough stain―but it's on a delicate fabric.
Solution: Some gentle laundry detergents, like Woolite and Victoria's Secret Affection Delicate Wash, are formulated to work in the washing machine on the gentle cycle. And unlike regular detergents, which contain tough ingredients that make them alkaline or acidic, these are closer to a neutral pH, and thus gentler on fragile fabrics.
To buy: Woolite, $6.50, in supermarkets; Victoria's Secret, at Victoria's Secret Beauty stores (unfortunately, this item is not currently available).
