Homemade Laundry Stain Removers

Recipe #1
1 cup hot water
1/2 cup baking soda
1/2 cup hydrogen peroxide
Directions:
Mix ingredients then store in spray bottles. Spot treat stains then soak overnight.


Recipe #2
2 quarts water
1/2 cup ammonia
2 TBS laundry detergent
Directions:
Mix ingredients then store in spray bottles. Spot treat stains then soak overnight.
Do not use with bleach.


A good pretreater:

Save pieces and leftover slivers of bar soaps and collect in a jar. Those little hotel soaps are ideal for this too (cut them down to small pieces).
When jar is filled half way with soap chunks, add boiling water. Mix soap bits and water until soap is melted.
Once cooled this will make a soap jelly. Use to pretreat laundry.
*Handy to gob onto stained items and toss back into the dirty laundry bag for pieces that you can’t wash right away.
Quick Tip: I’ve also used just straight liquid dish detergent successfully. Squirt a bit onto stain, rub in gently with your fingers, and then toss the garment in the laundry pile to be washed later. This is an especially easy one since you can apply the soap as soon as you notice the stain and leave the garment sit until laundry day.

  1. I have quite a few friends that this may come in handy and some of the parents of our skaters too!! I usually melt the last bit of soap in the shower enough so it fits down the drain, I think your way is more practical. LOL. Thanks for stopping by my blog and being a follower BTW. I look forward to more helpful posts. God Bless.

  2. Thank You. It's crucial when you have kids to have a good stain remover- especially when they skate, bike, run, climb, eat... well, pretty much do anything.
