FARRAGUT (WATE) -- OxiClean is advertised as the "stain specialist," with a claim that it will remove more than 100 different stains.

These days, you can find OxiClean in countless cleaning products, but 6 News decided to go back to the basics, and test the original powder in a bucket.            

With the help of the Allen family in West Knoxville, 6 News tested OxiClean on the clothes of their almost three-year-old Braden.   

After playgroup at the park and doing crafts at home, Braden's white and red shirt was covered in dirt, grass and paint.  

Needless to say, his mother, Jessica, was more than happy to help test the power of OxiClean.

6 News treated the grass stain, which was possibly the worst, with an OxiClean paste, then added a scoop to the washing machine for the entire load.

While the clothes were washing, we also tested OxiClean on grape juice stained carpet, something it claims to clean.     

At first glance, all the stains were gone on Braden's clothes, but with closer examination, there was still evidence of the grass and paint in a few spots.    

However, OxiClean scored an A+ on the carpet's grape juice stain.   

Jessica Allen, who calls herself a loyal Shout stain remover customer, gave OxiClean an 8 out of 10 and says she would use it again.
