One of my customers had spilled coffee on his white shirt and dried the shirt before realizing the stain hadn't come out. He asked me for advice and the lady in line behind him told him to make a mixture like this. He came back the next day and the stain was gone pecan. Apparently this works on any stain except grease stains! Trying it tonight on Kenneth's work shirts.

Homemade Oxy Clean recipe on the bottle :)
Homemade OxiClean (blog has been removed, but recipe is visible in the image!): 1 cup water 1/2 cup peroxide 1/2 c baking soda Soak laundry x 20 minutes and launder as usual
Homemade stain remover Me: Recipe right there... NO LINK. - 1 cup water - 1/2 cup (hydrogen) peroxide - 1/2 cup baking soda LABEL CONTAINER :) I have made the peroxide / baking soda paste...it works well, QUITE well. A spray would be fantastic too. The paste dries out quickly, be ready to add more peroxide to adjust. I think I'll head into Costco for the large package of peroxide I passed on earlier (choosing a 500ml bottle instead...Silly Me!!! )

Produce Bags. Great idea. I only use reusable canvas bags for the rest of my groceries in ordr to reduce plastic bag use. But then I feel counter productive when I get to the register and realize I have just used 7-8 plastic produce bags anyways.
