I thought I would share with you my favorite homemade stain remover. A dear friend shared this with the mother’s group from our church many years ago, when I was pregnant with my first child. I was tired and nauseous from all the chemicals and strong smells of store-bought cleaners, so I was finally ready to give homemade cleaners a try.
This stain remover is so easy to make, it would be silly for me to do a step by step how-to post, with pictures for each step. And it would be even more ridiculous to create a recipe card to print for you.
These are places where this handy-dandy stain remover has seen some action:
- Poop-stained onesies, shorts, pants, etc. after those unexpected diaper blow-outs.
- Chocolate cake and frosting on the carpet (I knew I should’ve ordered vanilla!).
Spilled milk on the carpet. It got rid of the rancid, spoiled milk smell too.
Blood stains (from cuts, bloody noses, and personal feminine stuff)
Grease/Oil (Hubby got too close to the garage door hinge and was wearing a brand new dress shirt! This stain remover saved the day!)
Pee stains on the mattress. (Night-time potty-training was rough.)
Cleaning shower floors. Ours has a bumpy surface and seems to cling to unsightly hard water stains.
I’m sure there are many more uses to this concoction.
Do you have a favorite homemade cleaner?
