Easy Homemade Stain Remover

May 7, 2013
 

Tuesday Tip is finally here today!  It’s been a crazy busy morning making party invitations, cutting vinyl for an upcoming post, cutting watermelon for the hungry kids (those are giant … and take a lot of time to cut, just sayin’), picking up breakfast messes, and making sure kids got sent off to school.  Not to mention the random stuff that always comes up when I sit to do anything.  Lol.

Anyways!  Oh the the tip of the day.  Alright, when I had my first baby (almost 8 years ago … crazy), my mother-in-law gave me a little recipe for a great homemade stain remover.  I’ve passed this on to friends and it’s worked great for them as well.  πŸ™‚  I use this for pretty much anything.  Everyone once in a while I do have to use it before washing, wash, then apply again and wash.  Sometimes I let it soak for a while depending on the stain and how long it’s been working on staying in the clothes.

What you’ll need:
Ammonia
Liquid Dish Soap
Water
Bottle of some sort (I used that little bottle that they give you in the hospital after you have a baby, lol, and since I have 6 kids, I had a lot of them … I think a spray bottle would work find too)

What you do with what you need:
Combine 1 part of each ingredient into the bottle.
For instance, my bottle is in ounces.  I do 2.5 oz of each part and get 7.5 oz.  Easy.  πŸ™‚

For use:
Just spray it directly on the stain and scrub the fabric together.  Try to remove or lessen the stain with the scrubbing.  You can add a little water and scrub again, or soak if needed.  After scrubbing, add to your laundry load.  Make sure to check on it after the wash cycle is done.  I usually don’t have a problem with it coming out after one wash. Every once in a while I’ll repeat.  Spray, scrub, wash and then it’s usually out.  πŸ™‚

Best uses:
Blood (like when you find out your kid had a blood nose in the middle of the night)
Clothes that have had a diaper blow out on them.  πŸ™‚  Gotta love it.
Spit up from those cute little babes
Other random stains … πŸ™‚  Try it and see what you can get out.

      Christina, I’m totally horrible with removing stains. I’ll finally get this all made, and then I use it, and don’t make more for the longest time. Lol. Sigh. Maybe someday I’ll catch on. Probably in just enough time for all the kids to leave the house. πŸ™‚

    For some reason, I manage to get stains on me all the time. My husband says it’s a talent, and I think he might be right. This is an easy fix and I suspect I will be using it soon.

    FYI: I’m visiting from the blog hop. πŸ™‚
