So, we've found a rather unorthodox use of a well known all-purpose cleaner: 409. We use it like we did spray and wash, spray it on the stains, and wash as normal. Oh. My. God. It's the best stuff ever! I just washed one of my dog-walking coats. It had several layers of dog paw grime and even some dried blood from a few days ago (long story, everyone's fine) and we sprayed it all down with 409. I swear it looks as clean as it did when I bought it. We use it on EVERYTHING! Colors, white, whatever. It's not advertised for this use, but I can honestly say we'll never use another stain-remover again!

I love 409's natural stone cleaner for my tile.

AND, if you're under attack by a particularly scary insect or spider (but not cockroaches, they're especially tough...) 409 (or Fantastic) works great as a bug killer. Ants taking over your kitchen or bath, huge spider on your wall, don't want to spray with more toxic stuff around kids, birds, etc. get that great spray cleaner bottle and go to it! dancing cheer dancing cheer

shock It kills ants??? Good to know. The little buggers always invade right before the first hard rain.
