How to use Buncha Farmers Stain Remover (Including Review)

I was introduced to one of my favorite products ever through cloth diapering. But I don’t only use it for cloth diapers.  It’s Buncha Farmers Stain Remover!

This little stain stick works like magic on stains. It makes them disappear!


I know, I know. That sounded corny. But I mean it. This little stick really does seem to be able to get anything out.

It was created by, well…. a bunch of farmers based out of Central Ontario, Canada.

All natural ingredients, 100% biodegradable and will not discolor clothes or fabrics. Totally safe on cloth diapers. Buncha Farmers smells of eucalyptus. A wonderfully fresh smell, like an open window in the summer!

The most common way I use Buncha Farmers is to use it in spray form as a pretreater. Here are step-by-step instructions so you can make your own.

I keep a spray bottle in the bathroom and spray poopy diapers with the Buncha Farmer’s mix before I put them in the wet bag to help prevent stains. I also spray on clothing stains before washing. We all know how hard it is to get rid of baby food stains! Yuck!

Another easy way to use this is to just wet the end of the stick and rub it on the stain. Then just use an old, damp toothbrush and scrub. Launder as usual. Sometimes if you are dealing with a serious stain like blueberry, you might have to repeat the process one or two more times to get it out. But let me you assure you, the stain WILL come out.

If your cloth diapers or inserts come out of the wash and are still stained, sunning is always the best way to get the stain out. But in the winter, sunshine can be a little limited…insert sad face here! If this happens to me, I just use the wet stain stick, scrub and throw the diapers back into the wet bag for the next time. They usually come out sparkly white on the next wash.

Now this is why I truly love Buncha Farmers. You can use it to clean pretty much anything in your home.

Grate up about ½ stick in your carpet cleaner. BAM! Fresh, clean and stain free carpets with an all-natural cleaner so you don’t have to worry about your baby crawling on it!

Yellow armpit stains that just never come out. Scrub some Buncha Farmers on them and wash. Gone!

Take the spray and clean just about any surface in your home: countertops, toilets, tubs, tile or linoleum floor, carpets. The list is just endless!

Finally, one of my favorite uses! You know how the car seat can get a little grimy from Junior eating in the car? Well just spray or scrub a little Buncha Farmers on the problem area and it will be good as new!

This is an amazing product that really does what it claims to do. All with no artificial dyes or perfumes and totally non-toxic, all-natural ingredients! Safe AND effective, what more could we ask for?

If you haven’t tried Buncha Farmers. You need to!

    Does it work for EBF stains in wool? Sunning has helped but I want the stains gone!


  2. Heidi Says:

    Is there a “recipe” for a spray. It says link was removed above and will be posted later.


  3. Jennifer Says:

    How long can it sit on the stains without damaging/bleaching the clothes? I prefer to treat the stain (have used Stain Stick and Oxiclean stick) and then toss in the hamper and wash within the next week.


    • Jennifer Reinhardt Says:

      Hmm, good question Jennifer. I am not sure that it would ever stain. Lots of people spray it on diapers and throw in wet bag to wash a few days later.


  4. Samantha Luttrell Says:

    I am not joking you – there is not a single stain that this stick has ever gotten out for me. Zero. Zilch. Nada.


    • Jennifer Reinhardt Says:

      I’m sorry to hear that Samantha! Maybe it’s the type of water you have. I can’t lie, some stains really needed some elbow grease while scrubbing with the old toothbrush. But I have yet to find something it can’t get out.


  5. Amanda Says:

    love this stuff, but I don’t like the “stick” format. The best way I have used it is to grate about 3 tbsp of it and dissolve in 1 cup of hot water. Pour into a spray bottle and let it cool. After that, I just spray it onto whatever stains exist (I’ve even used it on our carpet). Sometimes I’ll use a toothbrush to work it into the stain, but this isn’t always necessary. It works wonders.


    • Amanda Says:

      Oops, I see now that you’ve already included instructions on making a spray. I guess my comment on this post was a bit redundant. :)


      • Jennifer Reinhardt Says:

        Thanks Amanda! Lots of people never bother to click on the links, although they should because they might miss great info. So it never hurts to see it again!


        • Polly Says:

          When I click on that link that is supposed to show how to make the spray, I get the “404 NOT FOUND” error message. So I’m glad Amanda posted this! :)


          • Jennifer Reinhardt Says:

            Yup, Good thing! The link did work. I guess I will have to work on a new one! Thanks Polly!

    This stuff is darn near miraculous. I haven’t used it on CD yet, but it gets just about everything out of clothes. I was certain my son had ruined his new cream colored shirt with blueberry stains, but this thing popped them right out way better than even Spray n Wash.


  7. BargainShopMama Says:

    Anything that makes a moms life a little less messy is wonderful :) When those diapering days are coming to an end, check out this blog for a great potty training tip that definitely keeps things on the cleaner side!


  8. Traci C. Says:

    I like it, but I found one thing it won’t get out. Chocolate stains on white clothing. I’ve tried Buncha Farmers on it like 3 times and the stain still won’t come out. If anyone has any tips, let me know. :)


  9. Autumn Beck Says:

    I used to have a stick but honestly didn’t know what to do with it! Sounds silly I know. I have no idea where it went or I would have put it to the toughest test…red lipstick on my oldest daughter’s brand new neon yellow jeans.


  10. Trisha W. Says:

    Another way to use it in the laundry room is to keep a small spray bottle of water next to the stick. When prepping stains for laundering spray the spot and then rub with the stick. I hear that works better than just trying to rub the stick on a stain. (We get some large stains here.)
