Guide Review - Shout Advanced Stain-Lifting Foam - About.com Laundry Product Review

From the makers of the Shout line of stain removers, comes Shout Advanced Stain-Lifting Foam formulated for Greasy Stains. As Shout's only aerosol formula, it has foaming action to penetrate, break up and remove greasy stains. To use, just shake the can and hold about six inches from the fabric and spray. The stain should be thoroughly saturated. Wait for one to five minutes and then wash as usual. The stain remover should not be allowed to dry before washing as it could discolor fabric.

Shout Advanced Stain-Lifting Foam does not contain CFCs which can deplete the ozone layer. The steel can is recyclable.

There is no ingredient listing on the product. However, by visiting the SC Johnson website you will learn that it contains:

  • Water
  • Butane - propellant
  • Isobutane - propellant
  • Propane - propellant
  • Ethoxylated Alcohol - cleaning agent
  • Tetradec-1-ene - cleaning agent
  • Sodium Borate
  • Sodium Citrate
  • Diammonium Phosphate - Corrosion preventer
  • Fragrance

    The foam is save to use in high-efficiency and regular washers on all colorfast washables. It is simple to use but must be used and stored away from open flames and high heat.

    I gave it a try on both a fresh grease stain (oil) and one that appeared on a previously washed t-shirt. Shout Foam was effective in removing the fresh stain but did not work well on the previously laundered grease stain on the t-shirt.
