JanieÂ® Dry Cleaner Stick
Great results with a caveat
I've traveled with this little stick all around the world, and it has been invaluable both at home and abroad. It really does take out OILY, GREASY stains (which means it's especially handy after eating street tacos in Mexico!). It won't always work on other types of stains, but this in combination with tide and clorox stain pens should just about cover 90% of stains.
Now, it's not perfect, and here's why: when you rub the stick on a stain, it goes on like chalk on a blackboard, which means you have to brush ALL the chalky stuff off your the fabric when Janie has done her thing, On many clothes with tight, smooth fabric (like a men's dress shirt) it's pretty easy to get the chalk off, but on loose, bulky, fiberous material (like corduroy or yarn) it's more difficult to brush away for obvious reasons. Corduroy proved to be almost impossible without carefully sponging it off. So, test it in an inconspicuous place first. Of course, because Janie is white like chalk, darker color fabrics will require more brushing.
In spite of these issues, it definitely has permanent home in my luggage and closet.

Really saved me some money on some clothes I wouldve sent to the cleaners if I didn't have this stick! Great at removing oil stains from any type of material. Definitely recommend as a great thing to have around the house or in your purse.

Does not remove stains as I hoped it would. Gets messy white chalk on your hands. Container is hard to open (cheap).
