Does OxiClean work in cold water?

OxiClean works best in warm to hot water. If washing with cold water, first dissolve OxiClean in 16 oz of warm to hot water. Add to cold water. Adding more OxiClean powder than directed increases the risk of color loss.

How much laundry detergent should I use?

As a general rule of thumb, you should only use about a tablespoon of laundry detergent per regular load size. (The measuring cup that comes with your liquid laundry detergent is about 10 times larger than the actual amount of laundry soap needed.) Never pour liquid detergent into your machine without measuring first.

Is tide better than Arm and Hammer?

The outcome: Tide ultimately did a better job removing the soaked-in wine stain than Arm & Hammer. A red wine stain that has been soaking into fabric for an hour is, of course, much harder to remove than a soda stain that was only there for a few minute.

Will OxiClean fade jeans?

For washing, you'll want some borax or OxiClean, and if you need a more intense fade, you can use some bleach—we'll get to that later. To create an antiqued look, coffee beans and tea are great (and also acidic, which helps in fading them).
