I have not been this pleased with a book purchase in a long time! I read a piece in The New York Times that sparked my interest and purchased Field Guide to Stains. And let me say, that the stain removal techinques I've tried really work! What's more it's an interesting read and the close-up photos of the stains are not only hilarious, but very useful for identification. This book will get a lot of use around my house.

Format: Paperback
I'm not the best in the laundry room...don't even get a bottle of bleach around me, I'll ruin something everytime. But, I've very good at getting something on my clothes. This book is fabulous. Every time I have a stain, new or old, I refer to the book and follow the instructions to a T. Each time the stain is removed.

Yesterday, I had a roller ball ink pen sticking out the bottom of a purse and, of course, I had five 10 inch marks all over the back of my hips on my BRAND NEW white pants. Sure enough, I got out the book, indexed ink and followed the directions. I could not believe the stain just got pulled off onto the other cloth.

I keep the book in the laundry room above the washer!

Format: Paperback
If you have ever had to actually toss out a perfectly good garment that you loved with lots of more life left in it just because of a stain that resisted every attempt to dissolve it, this is most definitely the book for you.

Packed with information and illustrations, The Field Guide to Stains will help you remove more than 100 different types of stains, and the information is divided up into sections by type for easy research while preparing laundry.

The Field Guide to Stains: How to Identify and Remove Virtually Every Stain Known to Man is well-worth the investment, because potentially it will save you a fortune on even one favorite garment that you won't have to needlessly replace.

I love this book!

Format: Paperback
Mustard? No problem. Chocolate. Outta here. But a huge scorch mark on the collar of a brand new "wrinkle free" blouse I had to dry in my dryer? Hmmm. I was angry and skeptical that I could ever get it out. However...I followed the directions in the handy book I've had since 2002 and the blouse is perfect once again (peroxide was the key). I'm kind of a laundry freak and this book keeps me on top of my game.

I was skeptical at first, but I removed some stains that I had long given up on with tips in this book. Well worth the money.
