myStain: Now there’s an app for that

By Dr. Laundry May 21, 2010

I’m so excited for all you iPhone and iPod Touch owners. Clorox has just released the FREE downloadable myStain mobile app available from the iTunes store. I developed this as both an on-the-go and when-you-get-home stain removal guide and game. In mid-June, Clorox will be introducing myStain for the Android (or Droid) smart phones.

The app includes more than 25 different stains, which should cover just about anything you can get into or on you. What a range of stains:

  • Eating accidents (like burger drips, salad dressing, soy sauce or ice cream)

  • Adult beverages (red wine, liquor or beer)

  • Everyday beverages (coffee, tea or soda)

  • Really TOUGH ones (vomit, dirt/mud, makeup or lipstick)



First I tell you what to do right away, since the sooner you start, the better your chances are for ultimate removal of the stain. I also tell you what not to do, since the wrong treatment can make removal later on even more difficult/impossible. Then, I tell you what to do when you get home, since the wrong approach can lead to less than spectacular results.

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.

myStain covers a number of stains, but remember if I missed your particular one, you can always send me an email – Like so many before you, I will provide you with a detailed roadmap for getting the best possible result.
