How long pretreat

How long can I go after I pretreat before washing clothes?

I normally do not do wash daily and hate to have stain set in.

Thanks...

Check whatever you are using as a pretreat. Things like spray and wash say do not let it dry before washing.

If its just a food sauce splash or similar..you can always use whatever then do a spot hand wash in the sink.

Mostly what I need to pretreat is persperation/antiperspirant stains. Would it be plausable to spray w/vinegar water soultion and let it sit a few days before washing?

If it dries before washing..I doubt it will be effective. Maybe get a pan/tub and treat and soak until washing?

I sometimes spray on Shout and Zout a few days before washing. Hasn't hurt anything yet. Then I spray again b4 I put it in the wash. Tide has a new Sport formula out that's supposed to be good for perspiration stains. Maybe you want to check that out, too.

Just found Shout Advanced, says you can pretreat up to a week in advance.

Haven't found Tide Sports Formula yet, but I'll keep looking.

Thanks
