Mom life: The stains are real. You hit them with the chemical stuff, the natural stuff, the pantry remedy you saw on Pinterest. You try everything and sometimes it just ain’t working. But don’t give up on that couch/sweater/rug yet, mama: There’s an $8 cleaning product on Amazon that just might do the trick when nothing else will.

Miss Mouth’s Messy Eater Stain Treater has a near-perfect rating on Amazon from nearly 4,000 reviewers, who love that it packs the performance punch of a heavyweight chemical cleanser. But it’s actually a non-toxic formula — without chlorine, parabens, sulfates, peroxide, or bleach. So it’s safe to use around kids and pets, and it’s 100-percent biodegradable.

One repeat buyer called it “amazing,” gushing, “It can take almost any stain out. I use it on tablecloths that food spills on, all baby clothing stains, and pet stains.”

Another called it “the best stain remover… EVER” in a glowing review. “This stain remover is the absolute best. I saw people post about it on the Internet and decided to try it since I have two young kids that make giant messes on their clothes. It literally removes the stain in front of your eyes,” the reviewer says. “My kid got raspberries in my off-white cardigan and it came out within seconds of me spraying this on my cardigan. I’ve used it so many times after and it works every single time. I will definitely be purchasing more when I run out.”

Use it on dried-in or fresh stains, on just about anything: furniture upholstery, clothes, carpets, and in the car. Spray it, blot it, rinse it, and you’re done. Mom wins!
