Homemade Stain Removers

Are you sick and tired of buying expensive laundry stain removers that just don’t work? When store-bought stain removers can’t do the trick removing stains from your garments, go old school and create your own! It’s time to stop wasting money and create a formula that works from common household ingredients.

Before you become a mad-scientist in your laundry room, make sure you have clean spray bottles on hand to mix all your ingredients in. Amazon has great deals on spray bottles if you need to grab some, or try going to your local Target to pick up a couple. Now that that you have your spray bottles it’s time to have some fun and create a homemade stain remover for just pennies.  

ALL PURPOSE LAUNDRY STAIN REMOVER

1 part Rubbing Alcohol
2 parts Water

WINE & GRASS STAIN REMOVER

1 part White Vinegar
1 part Liquid Dishwashing Soap
1 part Water

PERSPIRATION AND BLOOD STAINS

1 part Ammonia
1 part Liquid Dishwashing Soap
1 part Water

Once you have concocted your favorite stain-fighting formula, spray a generous amount on the stain you wish to remove. Let stand for 20 minutes or so and then toss into the washer. Whoola, like magic your stain will be gone and your clothes will be ready to wear – say goodbye to store bought stain removers for good.

As a reminder, do not use these homemade products on silk, wool, spandex or acrylic. The formulas are only intended for fabrics that can be thrown in the washing machine. If you are not certain your homemade solution can go on a fabric, do a spot test first to make sure it will not damage your garment.
