According to majority reviews, all three stain removers are effective and simple to use. Oxiclean can be used not only for laundry items, but many carpets, upholstery and other products. With 4.8¢ per load, no wonder Oxiclean has the best ratings and is more popular than the other 2 Stain Removers.

As we mentioned earlier, we love Shout Laundry Stain Remover, it successfully took out food stains on clothes that was stained months ago. For tough oil stain, Shout can take the stain out from fabric as well.  Since Clorox 2 adds color booster to the clothes, we will try it out once we used up Shout.
