DIY: Stain Remover

DIY: Stain Remover by Sigrilina -- With small children and pets is almost impossible to think of living with clean clothes. Yet what I find most troubling is how persistent stains in clothing are.

With small children and pets is almost impossible to think of living with clean clothes. Yet what I find most troubling is how persistent stains in clothing are. I discover this recipe online after a couple of failed attempts with other recipes. If I were to caution about something is that sometimes clothes are dirty and you don’t even notice. It happened to me that I used the stain remover on a white t-shirt and it cleaned it so well that it was bright white, just on that spot, the rest was yellowish. Is not terrible because the next time I just used it on the entire t-shirt and was like new again.

Another tip that I want to share with you is that you can’t store it once made. I tried but it kept on growing and after one hour it was all bubbly. And use gloves! I did it with my bare hands once and they got discolored! They returned to their normal color after a couple of hours but was scary at first.

The recipe is for small stains or just for one piece of clothing, you can make more, just keep the proportions.

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon of biodegradable detergent or castille soap
  • 3 tablespoons of hydrogen peroxide 10 volumes
  • 1/2 tablespoon of baking soda

Preparation

  1. In a bowl mix the detergent with the hydrogen peroxide.
  2. Add the baking soda so it thickens. You want to achieve a sort of paste.
  3. Apply on the stain or full piece of clothing.
  4. Let rest for 1 hour.
  5. Wash as usual.
