    Nope, but this site suggests soaking it don't rub it.
    When it comes to dealing with Kool-Aid stains, the best thing to NOT do is press or rub on it. If the stain is in a piece of clothing, try soaking it in a stain remover or other remedy. (Some recommend vinegar, others recommend baking soda or a bowl with a couple tablets of denture cleaner.) Then launder as you normally would.


    I will miss you SOS...

    well all the ones I come across recommend using that method. I use folex or vinegar mostly because it gets out my stains even stains resolve doesn't get out.

    You just pour it directly on the stain, then soak up with a clean cloth. the smell doesn't stay i use it all the time on my carpets. even when I use the carpet cleaner machine, works great!
