12 Surprising Uses for Stain Fu (other than carpet!)

Many people do not know that you can use Stain Fu on a plethora of things. I like to refer to Stain Fu as hot sauce: I put that stuff on everything! Although there are some things you don’t put hot sauce on, the same goes for Stain Fu. So what other ways can you use Stain Fu that doesn’t involve carpet? Here are my top 12 useful ways to use Stain Fu:


stain fu works on clothing
1. Clothing
Someone asked me the other day if Stain Fu could work on messy kids clothes. The answer is absolutely! There are a few ways you can do this. You can spray directly onto the spill/stain and then blot it with a towel. Or you can also pre-treat and spray Stain Fu on to the stain and toss it in the laundry to finish the cleaning.

stain fu works on microfiber
2. Furniture
 Most people specifically ask about microfiber, and yes it works! Talking from experience, Stain Fu works especially well on microfiber. It works well on any synthetic fiber, but always check in an inconspicuous area before cleaning.

stain fu works on laminate floor
3. Laminate/Vinyl Floor
It’s tough to find a good cleaner, and so we were amazed how well it cleaned up with Stain Fu! Here’s a shining example (see what I did there? ) of what it looks like after using it.

stain fu works on countertops
4. Countertops
We use Stain Fu on counters pretty regularly. It even works well on granite and other natural stone! It’ll make your counters nice and sparkly clean.

stain fu works on wood floor
5. Wood Cabinets/Walls/Floors
As long as your wood is finished (not bare wood), Stain Fu works great at wiping and cleaning build up of dust and grime. Again, always test in an inconspicuous area first, especially if you’re unsure of what you have. And make sure that your wood has a finish on it before you use anything. Even if you apply water to bare wood, it has the potential to distort the look.

stain fu works on water marks
6. Water stains on fixtures and thresholds
Surprisingly, water can leave marks that are hard to get rid of! As an example on this particular shower threshold, we first tried cleaning it with water and the water stain came right back. Then we used Stain Fu on it and it was gone!

stain fu works on stainless steel
7. Stainless Steel
We also use Stain Fu regularly on stainless steel appliances like refrigerators, dishwashers, etc. We know that it can be tough to get rid of those fingerprints! Spray the area, use a lint-free soft cloth (like microfiber), and wipe with the grain of the stainless steel for best results.

stain fu works on tile and grout
8. Tile and Grout
We have tons of experience with cleaning grout and know how much of a pain it is! For unsealed grout, just spray the grout lines, scrub the areas with a toothbrush and wipe it up.

stain fu works on concrete
9. Concrete

We have a cat that likes to puke hairballs on our concrete garage floor and this dog loves to pee on the patio. We always reach for Stain Fu to treat and spray those nasty piles of spew and urine. Stain Fu can also be used on concrete for cleaning feces, slobber, and any other organic stains that happen.

stain fu works on shoe deodorizer
10. Shoe Deodorizer
This tip actually comes in from several of our customers! They tell us that they use Stain Fu to get rid of the stink from smelly shoes. Just spray the offensive parts of the shoes and air dry. The smell should just disappear!

stain fu cage cleaner litter box cleaner
11. Cage cleaner/Litter Box cleaner
I personally use this for both. From dog cages to small critters like hedgehogs, hamsters, bunnies, etc. you can use Stain Fu to wipe down the cage to sanitize and deodorize the cage. Same with cleaning the litter box. Best part is that Stain Fu is safe around your pets AND it effectively cleans. Win-win!

stain fu works on pet bedding
12. Pet Bedding
This tip also comes in from several of our customers! The very best way to get rid of odors from pet bedding is to wash it in the washing machine, but if you don’t have time for that, spray Stain Fu onto the pet bedding and let it air dry. Like we had mentioned earlier, Stain Fu is completely safe around your pets so they can use it right after it dries!
