Every “laundry professional” (ie. anyone who does laundry) needs a good stain remover in their laundry arsenal! It helps if that stain remover is cheap and effective. Luckily, this recipe for a homemade “Shout”-like stain pre-treater is all that and more! Easy & inexpensive to make AND works wonders! I’ve used this simple spray time and again with impressive results! I hope you love it as much as I do!
Homemade Stain Remover
Start by combining just the baking soda and warm water in a bowl, and stir until the baking soda is completely dissolved.
Now mix everything else together and pour into a 24-oz spray bottle. If you don’t have a 24-oz bottle, this recipe is really easy to cut in half!
Now grab your stained clothing and get to work! I splashed my t-shirt with tomato sauce making Shepherd’s Pie on Sunday, but no worries, it will be good as new in no time. :-)
Before you use it, give it a good shake (especially if it’s been sitting around for a bit.) It does tend to separate a bit. But after a quick shake, it’s good to go! To use, simply spray on stains as you normally would. I usually let mine “soak in” for a few minutes. I also like to scrub the stain with an old toothbrush to really work-in the stain remover. Then launder as usual.
And yet again, I’m left with a beautiful, stain-free tee-shirt!! I hope you find it helpful in your laundry room “battles!”
