ZOUT, ZOUT, CLOTHES SPOTS! STAIN REMOVER IS WORTH A TRY

A new stain remover awaits your spot-impaired clothing. Zout claims to be "toughest on kid's stains" and retails for $2.09 for a 12-fluid-ounce container.

Don Russell (married, five children at home, ages 14-4): "Zout is an effective and mild spot remover, but it's not the answer to every stain. All in all, we were pleased with what Zout was able to do. Zout was able to make some headway with our real stubborn stains. We're happy to go on record endorsing this product for fine apparel as well as for the everyday-clothes stains that we all get from time to time."Edyth Jensen (married, three children at home): "As far as I can tell this works pretty good. The spots I used it on came out. It is a bit expensive but competitive with most other cleaners of that type. We probably will try it again."

Nihla Lake (married, two children at home): "My husband spilled some very permanent-type ink on his brand new tan pants - perfect timing to try out the spot remover. Skeptically, we followed package directions having little hope for the outcome. Voila! When the pants were removed from the washing machine, there was only a very faint suggestion of the stain. We're so excited and can hardly wait for the next BIG stain! (I guess our lives are pretty dull.)

Linda C. Tingey (single mother, four teenage boys at home): "I used this on my granddaughter's clothes. She spilled orange soda all down the front of her outfit, and it stained. I put it on, rubbed it in and let it sit for about five minutes. Then I rinsed it out and the stain was gone. This is good stuff. I like the price, and I'll definitely buy it again."

Rich Firmage (married, three children, oldest 8 years old): "What a completely original and unique name for a stain remover - which they obviously stole from Shout! I tried this on grape juice, and it took it out in one washing. I used it on blood and after two washings it was about 95 percent removed. Ballpoint pen - it did just fine. My wife tried it on some juice from a fresh apple and after three washings, it was still there.

"Zout works about as good as Shout does. Who knows, maybe it's really Shout in disguise."

Bill Allred (single): "This spot remover worked fairly well, I thought. I'm used to using Shout. This spot remover seemed no better but certainly no worse. I think, however, that it is somewhat more expensive than Shout. Let price guide you. I'm a really messy eater, and so I'm always using spot remover. Those pesky gravy stains are the bane of my laundry life."

Conclusion: Zout, zout, zamned spot! Give this remover a try, and you may see some unwelcome stains disappear.
