What was the hardest to clean stain that you have ever cleaned?

I'd like to hear what was the worst stain you have ever encountered?

I had some troubles with an apricot stain. Apricots are very hard to clean. Actually, if you stain your clothes with apricots, the chance to clean the spot is rather small.

I love cleaning and gardening!

Well, when it happened I did not know that apricot stains are hard to remove and I left it to dry. After that I realized that I cannot remove it anymore. Whatever you do when you stain yourself with apricots, do not leave the spot to dry. Treat it immediately with warm water mixed with oxygen bleach. However, I still do not guarantee you'll manage to remove it. It is really stubborn...

Once I had to deal with chewing gum stain on a carpet. That was the most stubborn stain I've ever tried to remove. And, yeah, I just tried but I couldn't. So I had to call a professional.

I've heard that chewing gum can be very easily removed with an iron and a newspaper. You have to put the newspaper on the chewing gum and to iron it. The gum remains on the paper.

An interesting topic. I would like to share my experience. Really, wine is a really though one. However, my story is quite unforgettable. One of my children was playing with a neighbours kid and they both invented the worst stain. We are talking about a stain, but my sons shirt was basically discoloured. They said they have put whatever they found in the bottle which later was spilled on Mike's red shirt. Toothpaste, liquid soap, vinegar, some window cleaning products and whatever they found. Even in high temperature in the washing machine the stain could not be gone. Finally, I threw away the shirt and the problem was solved. This is my story, hope you enjoy it!

Best Regards,
Cheryl Parker

the worst stain i ever had to remove was from my hands when i was about 6 years old. i was playing in the woods with my buddy, and we were making "wild berry pie" with the dark berries we found. of course we had over handled them, and were squishing them in our hands. but man, our hands were stained PURPLE for days!

Cleaning linoleum tiles and rubbing their shine off is horrible.

Grease and oil is the hardest to clean. I was cleaning my table fans using grease and oil, unfortunately, oil and grease fall on carpet, then i tried to wash it with detergents but not successful. At last i have to buy a new carpet.
