Spot on! Jun 30, 2008
If you have ever had to actually toss out a perfectly good garment that you loved with lots of more life left in it just because of a stain that resisted every attempt to dissolve it, this is most definitely the book for you.
Packed with information and illustrations, The Field Guide to Stains will help you remove more than 100 different types of stains, and the information is divided up into sections by type for easy research while preparing laundry.
The Field Guide to Stains: How to Identify and Remove Virtually Every Stain Known to Man is well-worth the investment, because potentially it will save you a fortune on even one favorite garment that you won't have to needlessly replace.
I love this book!
Useful guide to removing some tough stuff Jun 29, 2008
I was skeptical at first, but I removed some stains that I had long given up on with tips in this book. Well worth the money.
STAIN BUSTER! Oct 14, 2002
I have not been this pleased with a book purchase in a long time! I read a piece in The New York Times that sparked my interest and purchased Field Guide to Stains. And let me say, that the stain removal techinques I've tried really work! What's more it's an interesting read and the close-up photos of the stains are not only hilarious, but very useful for identification. This book will get a lot of use around my house.
