I too swear by the ice. It's great for right away!!!

Any mom can attest, blue frosting is usually a death sentence for clothes. I let my frosting stain sit for a good three days and it came right out with the ice.

I'll have to try that. My boss swears by some commercial product, I think it's Shout in stick form. She said it's great because you don't have to wash it right away like the Shout spray. You just rub the stick stuff on, then you can throw it in the hamper for a week, but whenever you do get it in the wash it comes right out. She's got two kids and she says it has worked on everything.

it's shout gel. It comes in a bottle with a brush top and it's awesome. You can brush the goo on right away or a week later, and then either way you can just let it sit. Works great, too. I haven't yet met a stain it didn't get out.

CalTechGirl - I tried the shout gel on the blue frosting before I tried anything else. I even let it sit to give it more time to work ... to no avail. The ice got the stain right out. I swear by it!

hmmm... I don't suppose I've ever done blue frosting. But it does get out blue gatorade... Usually I throw it in the wash before assessing how well it worked, and then check before drying.

Hmm.... so you're saying you like ice in your underwear? ;)
