Bar of soap for stains

For getting stains out of fabrics, I haven't found anything that works better than rubbing a regular bar of soap directly on the stain (and then agitating it with my fingertips/fingernails, rinsing with cool water, and repeating on the other side).

There’s actually an ancient laundry stain remover that’s in bar form called “Fels-Naptha.” I use it for laundry stains now, but I spent decades using whatever bar of soap happened to be in the shower, and that worked great.

As a woman, this has really relieved one of the stressors from 'that-time-of-the-month.'

Remember with blood to always use cold water.

And remember not to dry things in the dryer until you’re sure the stain has been removed so that you don’t inadvertently set it.

(Consumer Reports rates the OxiClean Maxforce spray as their best laundry stain remover, so I keep some on hand as well. Generally cheapest at Walmart.)
