Peroxide on blood stains. Vinegar/baking soda paste on ink stains. Soft scrub kitchen cleaner on permanent marker on the wall. Spray and wash spot treat the carpet if it's need before shampooing. Goop hand cleaner works good for that too.
i make my own laundry soap, for the most part it does pretty good. i also do use Tide stain release/ lifter, if the clothes are really stained my friend says she lets the clothes sit over night in the Tide stain release. and spray n wash to spray on a stain (not as often anymore since i use the tide.)
