I'm having a hard time getting the chocolate and cake color stains and the overall odor out of my aprons and towels. I use one of those oxy clean products with no luck. They still small like old icing.

Any suggestions.

Plastic aprons and paper towels! heheheh
Seriously, they do have a fabric type apron that looks like it is laminated with a plastic coating...just wipes off.

If you like a lot of citrus, save the peels , chunk them up and 'simmer' in water till you extract all the oils. Dispose of the peels, save the liquid and mix it 1/2 and 1/2 with detergent.

This is why I was so happy when I was able to switch to a linen service for the shop. I have 80 clean towels every other week and 20 clean red aprons that I don't have to wash! (happy dance! happy dance!)

Before that, I bleached the heck out of my towels and eventually just bought a new package at Sam's!

I use the Clorox pen it does a great job. You do have to stand there and attach every spot one at a time, but It really does the job. Also, if you don't have the pen, pour the Clorox in the cap of the bottle and the pour it directly on the area you want to clean and then rub the material together to loosen the dirt. Make sure you do this just before you throw it into the washer, otherwise you'll end up with holes in your apron.
