A lot of you probably already know that you can use a grease-fighting dish soap to help with grease stains, but this concoction takes it up a notch… Stains that would not come out with other methods and cleaners came out completely with this spot remover. Plus, it is cheap! You probably already have everything you need to make it right now. A special thanks to my fab friend, Sarah, for sharing this stain remover and stains with me!
The Only Spot Remover You Will Ever Need
- one part Dawn dishwashing liquid soap (generic dish soap works too)
- two parts hydrogen peroxide
- add some baking soda for extra scrubbing power (1-2 Tbsp)
Mix the ingredients together in a small bowl. Do you keep baking soda in your fridge for odors? After your baking soda has soaked up all the odors that it can, give it a second life and put it to work in this cleaning mixture.
Use a small brush to scrub the mixture into the stained area. Rinse, if desired. Launder as usual.
For tough stains, you can let the mixture sit on the garment for an hour or so, then launder as usual. Or treat the area a few times before laundering.
For this lovely stain, we let it sit for a few minutes after the first treatment, rinsed, then we treated it again and let it sit for another little while. After laundering as normal, the stain is completely gone!
I recommend doing a test on an inconspicuous part of the garment first to make sure that the spot remover will not harm the fabric. Hydrogen peroxide can be tough on fabric. Peroxide is sensitive to light, hence the dark bottles, so you may just need to mix this up as needed each time you need to treat some stains.
Try this spot remover on: underarm & collar stains, blood stains, grease stains, poop stains, baby food stains, cutting board stains, and many more!
