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. I am not going to reinvent the wheel on this. Check out this blog post on ‘From The Stash’ on how to make the spray. It’s a great explanation including PICTURES.
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!
