Make Your Own Laundry Stain Remover!

Making your own laundry detergent seems to be the craze lately.  I have all of the ingredients I need, I just haven't gotten around to it yet. Part of the reason that it is not top priority is that I have like six more bottles of laundry detergent on reserve. Last night, I ran out of stain remover-- in a house of all males, stain remover is a necessity. I decided to search for a recipe to make my own on Pinterest. I found one that I had everything that I needed to make it. All I needed was an empty spray bottle, some blue Dawn dish soap and hydrogen peroxide. I mixed 1 part of Dawn to 2 parts hydrogen peroxide in the spray bottle. I sprayed it on the stain, saturating the area, and let it sit for a few minutes and threw it in the washing machine. This stain remover works great! It got all of my stains out, even some that were old! Try it for yourself!


  1. I need to make some of that when my current stain remover runs out! We use quite a lot of that stuff with a toddler who gets sudden ideas like "I wonder what will happen if I put a prune in my skirt pocket?" I guess we're bound to!

  2. Thanks for this easy stain remover recipe! Can't wait to make some!
