Homemade Stain Remover

DIY This Easy and Effective Stain Remover

It always seems to happen: the minute you put on a new shirt, you end up with some sort of stain. Mix together a homemade stain remover that will whisk away challenging stains, instead of tossing soiled clothes into the wash and hoping for the best. And what's extra wonderful is that this concoction is made with three ingredients you probably already have in your home — and costs pennies to make! Keep reading for the directions and to see how the stain remover worked on this oily and muddy mark.

What You'll Need:

  • 1 tablespoon dish-washing liquid
  • 1 tablespoon baking soda
  • 1 tablespoon hydrogen peroxide

Directions:

  1. Mix together the dish-washing liquid, baking soda, and hydrogen peroxide in a small container, creating a smooth paste. Using a clean sponge or toothbrush, gently rub the stain remover over the soiled area.

  1. Once the stain has been treated, wash accordingly and then dry, revealing a nice and clean article of clothing. If you're working with a delicate material or if you're concerned about fading bright fabrics, then spot test the stain remover before using. As you can see, the concoction did wonders on my oily, muddy stain!
