Goodbye to Yellow Armpit Stains!

THE ONLY STAIN REMOVER YOU WILL EVER NEED!!!! Mix 1 part DAWN Dishwashing Liquid with 2 parts HYDROGEN PEROXIDE (which I already have for making Miracle Cleaner with). For stubborn stains or for items that still have a stain after being laundered (including having gone thru a dryer already) USE some Baking Soda for the extra scrubbing element by spraying mixture first and then adding the baking soda on top of the spray and scrub. Let sit for 1 hour and then wash. The stain should be gone!
