Best Homemade Stain Remover
Okay folks, this could be the end all, be all of stain removers. But first, let me give you a little warning . . . make sure that you do a spot check before spraying your entire garment. It should be okay on most fabrics since peroxide is the ingredient used in non-chlorine bleach. However, as my little daddy always says, its better to be safe than sorry.
Truthfully, I still prefer straight Dawn on greasy stains, but this seems to work on pretty much everything else; grass, red dirt, blood, mud.
Stain Remover Recipe
1/2 cup of Dawn Dish Detergent
1 cup of Hydrogen Peroxide
Pour Dawn in spray bottle, then pour in peroxide. Replace spray bottle lid, and gently, tip the bottle over, again and again until mixed. Do Not Shake due to pressure that can build up and possibly causing the peroxide to lose its strength.
Now, the longer you leave this solution on a fabric, the better it seems to work. Also, many people want to know the strength of the peroxide to use. The most common strength that I've found is 3 percent and it does the job.
This also works great on cloth furniture, carpets, grout, showers, and sinks.
This solution can be used in place of Lysol Power & Free Multi-Purpose Cleaner.
