Exit Stains

There are some things I will always make myself, and there are some things I'll only make myself when I can't buy the original product.

One of those things is Exit soap. Never heard of it? I'm not surprised. This funny little bar of soap is probably familiar to my Queensland readers, but everyone else  will be scratching their heads. Exit soap is what I used before I started making my own stain removing soap.  I started making my own because I couldn't always get Exit Soap (and my own is cheaper!)

My great-aunty used to bring me a supply when she'd come to visit, but she passed away a couple of years ago and I've been without the real deal ever since.

Until Sunday. I was in Target with Hannah and as we were on our way out, having picked up nothing, I noticed a little blue box of yellow bars of..... Exit Soap! Woo Hoo! I pounced on that box so quickly I startled a man walking towards me and embarrassed  Hannah (that's OK, that's my job).  To say I was excited is an understatement. I didn't even moan when I saw the length of the queue.

Exit soap is a brilliant stain remover.  On the label it says it "removes grease, biro, lipstick, boot polish, blood, red wine".  I love it because it removes graphite. I have a husband who uses graphite powder every day and I can tell you that it stains. Permanently. Unless you give the marks a rub with Exit soap (or my homemade stain removing soap).  You have no idea the number of uniform shirts that little yellow bar has saved from the rag bag in the 22 years we've been married.

I've used it to clean upholstery and even a berber carpet that had an unfortunate collision with a plate of spaghetti bolognaise with great success.  I even used it to clean liquid paper off a brand new, black shirt of mine. It's amazing stuff.

So, if you need a stain removing soap that really works, and you don't want to make your own, I recommend Exit Soap. And now you can get it in Target, you don't need to wait for your great-aunty from Brisbane to visit or take a trip to Queensland.

Of course if you don't want to buy a stain removing soap, you can always make your own. It's easy, cheap and very effective. You'll get the recipe and instructions here
