We all want spotless laundry, but caution should be used when choosing laundry products. Some spot removers contain dangerous petroleum distillates or bleach. The National Capital Poison Center reviews some of the possible dangers found in laundry products.
PreSpot contains plant based cleaning agents along with three enzymes: Protease targets protein stains, amylase targets starch stains, and lipase works on greasy stains. It also contains T36-C5 Melaleuca oil. You can read more about PreSpot at the Safer For Your Home website.
The Melaleuca Wellness Guide contains several customer tested solutions using highly effective PreSpot:
Fire ants have become serious pests in some parts of the country. Not only are they destructive, but their bites can require medical care. Some of the physical and environmental damage caused by fire ants can be seen on this website. Spray the ants with PreSpot. It is very effective for killing them — and they won't come back!
Kitchen dish cloths are easily stained after cleaning up spilled coffee and tea. Keep a spray bottle of PreSpot in the kitchen to quickly clean up stubborn stains.
Blood is a very challenging stain to remove. Spray the stained fabric with full-strength PreSpot. Let it sit for a few minutes and then rub out the stain with cold water. Repeat the procedure as needed.
Tar can be removed by PreSpot without hurting the finish on the car.
You will find it convenient to have more than one bottle of PreSpot Laundry Stain Remover available for family members to quickly treat all sorts of stains. PreSpot is also now available in a concentrated formula with an attached scrub brush built into the bottle lid.

We love using "PreSpot." It really gets out some tough stains. On one occasion recently, I accidentally got a pen ink stain on my WHITE T-Shirt. I thought, well I guess we will have to throw this shirt in the garbage. I then thought, I wonder if there is anything from Melaleuca to get this Ink stain out of clothing. Nothing else seems to do it. I IMMEDIATELY went to look in The Melaleuca Wellness Guide, and sure enough there was the solution to my problem. But would it really work? YES!! It did. And thanks again to the fabulous Melaleuca Wellness Guide on how to best use the Melaleuca products!!!

I actually have 2 PreSpot stories. The first one involves a nice dress shirt of my boyfriends that I thought for sure was ruined! There was a quarter sized grease spot on it even after going through the wash several times. I sprayed the PreSpot on it and let it sit for a little bit then tossed it in the wash. To my surprise, the spot was GONE! Loved it! Second, I use cloth diapers for my 8 month old daughter and after rinsing them when she makes a #2; I spray with PreSpot and put them in the bin until I wash them at night. It makes them come out so much cleaner and no stains! Love this stuff!
My PreSpot story is wonderful. My husband is a sales manager for a diesel mining equipment company. They sell the vehicles that go underground in the coal mines. After he sells them to the mines, he takes them underground to show the companies how to use them. When he comes back from a trip, he usually hands me a bag filled with a uniform covered in coal dust. For years now I have been washing all of it, with no good result. The last time he came home from a trip, I took that bag I hate to open, and decided to spray the PreSpot on the heavy areas that never come clean. To my surprise after a wash, I lifted his uniform out to see no more coal stains!! I was shocked at the result. I knew it did great with our everyday stains, but to get out old coal dust just floored me! I will never go without my PreSpot!!
My daughter came home from school with purple paint all over her new white shirt. When I got off work and got home it had been several hours that the paint was sitting. I sprayed it with PreSpot right when we got home. Before the kids went to bed I looked at it and the paint was more than 50% reduced already. I sprayed it one more time before bed, and by morning you could hardly see the paint. I have also gotten blueberry yogurt out of clothes. I also got blood out of a friend's shirt. We had gone to the zoo and his son fell and cut his lip on his teeth. The son put his face on daddy's shirt while crying. Again several hours later we got back to my house. I put PreSpot on his shirt and rubbed it in. It got a little lighter. I then used full strength PreSpot on the blood spot. After the shirt was washed my friend said the blood spot was 100% gone. Love, love, love the product.
PreSpot is without question the most effective and dependable stain remover I have ever used. A neighbor, whom believed her laundry products were "good enough," brought over a cream colored, cotton/polyester dress and asked if I could remove a stain. The stain had been on the dress for more than one year and she did not remember what the stain was. The dry cleaner could not remove the stain (I was shown the message card from the dry cleaner). She needed to leave her house with that dress on in about 40 minutes. I soaked the stain in a mixture of PreSpot, Sol-U-Mel and MelaPower, maybe 2 milliliters total, and let sit for 20 minutes. Then I scrubbed the area with a brush and watched the stain lift. I rinsed the area under a faucet and the stain was gone! Being summer, the small wet spot would dry quickly and it was near the bottom of the dress. She no longer considers her laundry products are "good enough." She is now a retail customer.
My husband and I moved out of state, and stayed at his sister's house while we found a place to live. During our stay, ants found their way into her home and created several "highways" in her entry-way. She used Raid a few times and it would work for a couple of days, but then they'd come back. Having small children, I was not comfortable with poisonous Raid on the floors where my sons played. So I rubbed full strength PreSpot in every area I saw ants. We never saw any ants after that. They never returned! PreSpot did the job better than poison!
In our laundry room we have a carpet remnant that our daughter used when she was in college some 20 years ago. Over the years it has acquired various stains and spots. While doing laundry one day, I thought I'd give the PreSpot a try. To my amazement the dark, nasty stains are gone! I also gave PreSpot a try on my husband's steel worker jeans that had the same black, heavy, thick grease stains for years. The stains are gone! I am amazed that the stains can be removed with such little effort. And all without walking down the chemical aisle at the grocery store! THANK YOU, MELALEUCA for this and all of your fabulous products.
After becoming a Melaleuca customer in November 2011, I ordered the Value Pack. One of the items I received was the PreSpot stain remover. I had a favorite purple polo shirt that was full of grease spots from grilling that I could not get out prior to using PreSpot. I had laundered the shirt numerous times, and had used another stain remover on the shirt with no success. To my surprise, after spraying the shirt with PreSpot and laundering with MelaPower, ALL the grease spots were gone after one use. And I had my favorite shirt back! Love Melaleuca's product line!
I became a customer 20yrs ago after quizzing a friend about how to clean a pair of middle-school white satin football pants. They were absolutely covered in mud and grass stains. She told me she knew of something that would get them clean. That was my introduction to PreSpot and MelaPower. I was so shocked that there wasn't a mark on them when I got them out of the washer. I have never looked back. Love all the products and tell as many as I can about them and your wonderful book, The Melaleuca Wellness Guide, and the newsletter.
When I was first introduced to Melaleuca 5 years ago, I wasn't sure PreSpot would work. Living with a husband who works in construction, and babies who had lots of accidents, laundry time was sometimes not the highlight of my day. To really see if PreSpot was as good as it said, I put my husband's work jeans to the test. He's a concrete finisher, so he's CONSTANTLY in concrete, dirt, mud; it's essentially his dream job. I would spray the jeans with PreSpot, let it sit overnight and put it in the wash. Holy cow! I couldn't believe how it got rid of those stains. The concrete is especially a challenge because it's pretty much glued to his jeans.
When my boys were babies, they had lots of "accidents" in their sleepers, jumpers, pretty much anything they wore. I would spray the PreSpot on their clothes and rinse them in the tub before adding them to the laundry. It was like watching a magic trick. Those "accident" stains literally melted off their clothes into the dirty water. It worked like a charm every time. Not only that, but the odors were gone as well.
Since the gel was introduced, it's my new favorite item. The boys have gotten older and they're getting into even more "mischief." I love how the gel really penetrates the dirt and gets to the root of those stubborn stains. I have saved many clothes because of PreSpot.
I'm always skeptical for things that are so "great" until I put it to the test myself. I had gone for a bike ride with my husband and had put on a light skirt, and knew I shouldn't have. Sure enough, it got into the chain and the brakes and got lots of black stains and grease marks. It looked pretty hopeless. Well here was my chance to put PreSpot to the test. I sprayed all the areas well and let it sit a bit. To my delight, with hardly a rub at all, the black stains lifted right out. Needless to say I was sold on the product. Thanks RM Barry for the helpful weekly newsletters.
I especially love the new gel formula. It's easy to use. I had an old towel that I used when I colored my hair. It had brown stains on it from hair dye. I had washed it so many times but the stains never came out. I decided to use the new PreSpot on it. I applied it to all the stains and let it sit for about 20 minutes. Then I threw it in with the other towels. After the towels washed I dried them all. No stains remained! I was amazed that the dye came out and the towel looked great. I love this product.
We moved to a house that had previously been home to a handicapped family. The stove vent hood was so thick with grease that none of my great cleaners could get it clean. I remembered how great PreSpot is with oil spots on clothing, and gave the hood a spray. It was a pleasant surprise to see it shiny again.
