Have you heard? Our unassuming Stain Remover is a little bar of laundry magic! Don’t just take our word for it, ask anyone who has used it.

Here is an abbreviated list of stains it has removed:

red wine

curry

salad dressing

spaghetti sauce

bbq sauce

coffee

olive oil

butter

grass

purple juice

chocolate

And the list really does go on! It has saved countless articles of clothes, tablecloths, carpets, car seats, couch cushions, etc. Safe any color or fabric, simply wet the stain remover bar as well as the area to be treated. Work fabric into a lather. Then wash as normal. You can either was right away, or wait until you are ready to wash a full load of laundry.

As with all of our products, our stain remover is free from palm oil, harmful toxins, artificial fragrances or dyes. It’s pure, simple, and clean. Just like your laundry should be.

Pair it with our all natural Powdered Laundry Soap and our 100% Wool Dryer Balls for a #ZeroWaste Laundry Day!



HomeMade Days in the Park

By Corey Breneisen

June in the Northern River Valley means HomeMade Days in Brandon Park. From the time I was a little girl, I remember enjoying this two day event featuring local artisans, craftspeople, live music and food. Tagging along with my mom and grandma, we would make our way through the park, my attention always drawn to vibrant hand crochet dolls or landscape paintings reflecting the local scenery.

It’s exciting for Rae Marie to become part of this long standing tradition. For me, personally, I couldn’t ask for a better homecoming. It’s an opportunity for us to establish ourselves as part of the local community of makers, and to maybe catch the eye of a little girl wandering through the park behind her mom and grandma.

Please come out and join us today and tomorrow. We will have all of your Rae Marie favorites plus a few surprises, as well as our new Rum Bar!

3 Benefits of Using Wool Dryer Balls

By Corey Breneisen

Our favorite eco laundry hack at Rae Marie is using old fashion solar power to dry our clothes. But when April showers come calling and our clothesline is out of service, we turn to our Felted Wool Dryer Balls for an eco laundry boost. Here are 3 reasons you should start using wool dryer balls for your laundry routine:

  1. Reusable & Nontoxic: If you haven’t ditched your dryer sheets yet, now is the time! Not only do dryer sheets create a lot of waste, but they damage your dryer, your clothes and your health! (Read more about toxic dryer sheets here.) Our wool dryer balls are made from 100% wool roving and are needle felted by hand. So not only are you getting a practical laundry tool, but a lovely handmade work of art too! While dryer sheets are one and done, wool dryer balls have an infinite life span. When you are ready for a change, simply toss the dryer balls into your compost.

  2. Reduces Drying Time & Static: Using 6 wool dryer balls in a heavy load (think blue jeans) can reduce drying time by 30-40%. That savings goes right into your wallet. Smaller drying time means a smaller electric bill. Wool absorbs up to 30% of its weight in water. Wool also has the magic ability to balance electrons thereby breaking the static cling! Dryer sheets use toxic silicone to break the static barrier. That silicone creates a film on your clothes as well as your dryer. Once on your fabric, it will be absorbed into your skin and can cause a host of allergen & respiratory issues.

  3. Softens Fabric & Eliminates Odours: Wool dryer balls are like a massage for your laundry! They gently pound the fibers in your clothes as they bounce around the dryer keeping the fibers soft, pliable and fluffed. As we stated earlier, wool is absorbent and that goes for odours too!
