Question
For instance... White socks... Blankets
Thank you

Answer
What are the stains? Where I live I have a heavy iron content in my water. ALSO the soil here has a heavy iron content. IRON causes reddish to brown stains that I have not been able to remove. It it's just soil adding a chlorine bleach to your wash water should help.  Are these stains just showing up after washing? That could indicate iron in your water.
