New Clorox Stain Removal App Available for iPhone and iPod Touch: Version for Android Phones Coming Mid-June

By making stain-removal tips available on your mobile device you're more likely to act quickly, giving you a better chance at removing the stain and maintaining a clean and longer lasting wardrobe.

Whether it's a sporadic spill or a frequent fumble, Clorox understands the embarrassment that comes with life's little, or bottle-sized, mishaps. Now, an at-the-ready solution is available that provide peoples with stain removal tips in real time, as stains happen. Clorox today introduces myStain™, a free downloadable stain-removal app and game available for the iPhone and iPod Touch. In mid-June, Clorox will be introducing an app for the Android (or Droid) smart phones.

From burger drips to dirt disasters and all the stains in between, myStain offers both on the go and at home advice to keep you spotless. The myStain app allows consumers to search for quick, step-by-step cleaning instructions from Dr. Laundry. For example, if your day begins with wearing your first cup of coffee instead of sipping it, myStain can turn your morning misfortune into a minor inconvenience with these simple instructions:

  • On the Go: First, rinse the stain from the inside of the item with cold water. This prevents the stain from sinking deeper into the fabric. Do not use bar soap, which may cause the stain to set.
  • At Home: Once you get home, pretreat with Clorox® Bleach Pen® Gel for whites or Clorox 2® Stain Fighter & Color Booster for colors. Then soak in cool water for a few minutes. Launder as usual with your favorite detergent on the hottest recommended water setting. Carefully inspect before machine drying.

"myStain makes it easy for people to act fast before the stain has time to set," says Dr. Laundry. "By making stain-removal tips available on your mobile device you're more likely to act quickly, giving you a better chance at removing the stain and maintaining a clean and longer lasting wardrobe."

The myStain app also includes an interactive game in which people can spin a wheel of stains and life situations to get funny stain removal tips for all occasions.
