The claim "Simply rub on and wash" is untrue. I bought this product because I was looking for a stain removing stick. I was looking for such an item because a resource I trust says if you're not going to wash an item right away after treating with stain removal product, use a stain removal stick. I recalled there used to be a Shout stick (if I remember the brand correctly) that said to wash the garment within 7 days of treating. This Cadie Stubborn Stain Remover Laundry Stick, however, has unexpected instructions. It said to wet the item first then rub the stain with the stick. Then, rub the garment under running water. It's inconvenient to wet the item before washing if I'm not going to wash the item right away. I did not expect instructions like this because the Shout one just said to rub with the stick and wash within 7 days.

Least effective were Cadie Stain Remover Laundry Stick,Citru-Solv-It solution (which was recommended by the folks atSummit Bike and Ski and did do well against dirty motor oil), andCarbona Stain Devil for Ink & Crayon.
