A spray stain laundry stick is designed to give you stain-fighting power on the go. These sticks allow you to treat and prevent stains immediately, even if you cannot get your clothing to the washer for a few days. Some stain sticks will actually take out the stain before you launder. Most will require a bit of time to work effectively. You may need to wait several minutes, hours, or even days to get the full benefit of the stain fighting. However, laundry stain sticks can take out tough fresh or set stains, even blood or grease, when used correctly. You may find benefit in a stick that includes a built-in scrubber. The best choice is to have several sticks stashed where you might need them: in your purse, in the car, and in your desk at work. If you plan to travel, make sure the stick will meet TSA requirements.
