It Happened Again Last Night

Our little secret …

a job for MelaleucaJUST HOME FROM WORK, I’m taking off my jacket and greeting my children … when I notice something missing.

That ugly spot on the carpet (remember, I said we have children). It is gone.


I look in wonder at my wife, and she mouths a one-word reply:


Products that do exactly what they claim—amazing, but true

I should be used to it by now. We’ve been trying one great Melaleuca product after another, for about six months. Still …

A few weeks back—again, home from work—I take off a brand new, first time worn, fits perfectly, beautiful white shirt. Seventy bucks worth of tightly woven comfort.

Then, I see the stain.

With no forethought to the potential consequences, I had placed a cheap felt pen in my pocket. Not the smartest move I’ve ever made.  Seventy dollars is a lot to pay for the privilege of wearing a shirt one time.

“Might as well throw it in the trash,” I moan, holding the shirt and staring woefully at the stain.

“Nothing is going to take that out.”

Then, I remember: Melaleuca.

Ye of little faith

another Melaleuca jobIt looked like a hopeless case, but I figured it couldn’t hurt to try. I had to try.

I sprayed the red mess with Prespot™, added a quick pump of Melapower® to the water, then threw the shirt in the washing machine and prepared to face the inevitable.

This time all bets were off. There was no way, I feared, anything could get that shirt white again. It would have to be trashed.

Could Melaleuca accomplish the seemingly impossible?

You guessed it.

I’m wearing that same shirt today—and there is absolutely no sign, or even a hint, of red ink anywhere.

Absolutely incredible.

It’s your turn, now

    I have been using Melaleuca products for just over 3 months now and I gotta tell you. I LOVE them. From the laundry detergent, dishsoap, tub and tile cleaner,and especially the stain remover. I have used it on chocolate and stains on the carpet from my puppy to anything I think needs it…I especially love the fact that it is better for my family. I LOVE LOVE LOVE Melaleuca products.
    I just keep trying new things out each month..

    Amazing!!!! I wish I would have found these products years ago!!! I too love the awesome work it does!! I just recently had to move into a new house.. it was a rushed deal.. so I told the landlord I would clean… Well I was absolutely disgusted with how horrible the bathroom was.. My mom and I tried all the cleaning products I had… NOTHING was working… then i remembered i had my melaleuca products with me!!! Sprayed the shower walls and tub with the Stain remover… I wish I would have taken before and after pictures!!! It worked like magic!!! I actually enjoy cleaning and removing stains now!!!!

    I too am now a lifelong customer of Melaleuca! I’ll never go back to what I used before. My story also involves my kids. My 2 year old somehow managed to get beet juice all over his brand new white t-shirt! Luckily my mom has Melaleuca products as well, so I put the Sol-U-Mel concentrate directly on the stain and then washed it with MelaPower and it came completely out! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE all the products!

    I have been a very happy Melaleuca customer for over a year now. Melaleuca’s products have gone above and beyond what my husband and I ever imagined. We have completely converted our house. We have a 4 1/2 year old and a 16 month old, so you can imagine the messes we deal with! Blueberry’s smashed on the carpet, the stains on the clothes, blood, sweat and tears all removed with Sol-U-Mel and Pre-Spot! Clogged sink drain, no problem! I poured a small amount of MelaMagic down and cured that problem! There isn’t a product we have used and didn’t love! Thank you Melaleuca for changing our lives!

    I so agree with Pre Spot – I have saved many knit colar shirts with old “spill” stains with Pre Spot.
    Last week saved a pair of jeans with PreSpot and Sol-u-Mel. Hit the trailer hitch with my knee and big grease stain from the hitch. Ouch! Thanks Melaleuca

    When I first started back in July ’94—one of the product experiences were that you could take a piece of aluminum foil & put a drop of your dishwasher soap on the foil & in a short time it would eat a hole in the foil. You can do that with Diamond Brite & it will not eat a hole through the foil.
    I can’t imagine if you haven’t switched to Melaleuca yet what is on your dishes & what are you ingesting everytime you put food on your plate.

    Red Sharpie marker on the white leather sofa. No wailing or gnashing of teeth! Full strength Sol-U-Mel took it right off & didn’t damage the leather. I’m a much nicer Grandma since Melaleuca came into our lives!

    I spent the night at the hospital 2 days ago. When discharged I took off the bandage that had been covering the spot where the IV needle had gone. Unfortunately blood came from the wound and onto my shirt. I did not get home for another 2 hours. Immediately I took my shirt off, sprayed it with Prespot and Solumel, put it into a wash basin and scrubbed it with a bristle brush. Voila, the blood stain came right out and you would never know that it had been there…and that is why we have been Melaleuca customers for almost 20 years now.
