    I always add Borax when I wash my bonnets. But I add 1 1/2-2 cups..... boosts the cleaning power, but more importantly, gets rid of the stank.......

    I usually just bleach the hell out of my bonnets but I'm sure that makes them wear out faster. I was using my bonnet pro pads the other day in an office and it totally came apart in the floor. Made a huge mess. I was not a happy camper.

    If they are cotton, bleach will make them wear out WAY fast.... I start the wash load, always on warm, or hot, allow them to agitate for 3-5 min. stop the cycle, let dwell for 15-20 min. then let the cycle finish.... they come out perfect EVERYTIME......

    Saiger's new blue, fluorescent van lights will make any shirt look ravishing white.
    All you have to do is lay at night under his van.

    They key is to presoak them in degreaser. I prefer Prochems Ultrapac Renovate. We often use it on smoke damaged laundry. It's amazing what an overnight soak in some a Renovate can do.

    We've saved many a sentimental item using Ultrapac Renovate. :cool:

    That product is probably the most under appreciated (and therefore undercopied) product Prochem ever made. It was the father of most olefin presprays and filtration soil removers. Nothing better for smoke related soils.

    Jim, it's an incredible product.

    Several years back I had a fabric conference room divider that had visible soot damage from a small hotel fire.

    It had been chem sponged and wiped down with OMS but still had a smoky stain. Nothing would touch the stain, out of desperation I grabbed a diluted bottle of Ultrapac Renovate and tried it.

    The soot released right on to the towel. :eekk:

    I sprayed more and it broke down whatever bond that was holding it to the fabric. It's one of our primary products for fire damage restoration. :cool:

    If it is like some of the other Hi Ph fire damage products it will also do really well with filtration soil. Not on wool though.

    I would always spray 27% vol on the pits of my white redcaps. Recently switched to blue to avoid the hassle.
