Question: My white bathroom towels have a lot of yellow stains that I’ve been unable to remove. Increasing the chemical dosage did not help. The stains are from guest’s lotion.

Question:I have a client who uses sunflower oil for their spas treatments so most of their sheets (cotton/polyester) are soiled with the oil. Is there a product that would eliminate the oil from the sheets or is there a special way to wash them? When the sheets are drying, leftover oil seems to cook at the dryer’s high temperature leaving the sheets with a yellowish stain and unpleasant odor.

Question: dryer, badly staining the entire load of laundry?
Question: I'd like to have some advice on a staining problem I'm having. The stains are on OR GREENS (operating rooms, green sheets) they look to be greasy looking stains. Anyone had a similar type of problem and found a fix, either with the wash program and/or chemicals?
