Homemade Stain Remover: •one part Dawn dishwashing liquid soap, •two parts hydrogen peroxide, •add some baking soda for extra scrubbing power (1-2 Tbsp). Mix the ingredients together in a small bowl. Use a small brush to scrub. Rinse. For tough stains, you can let the mixture sit on the garment for an hour or so, then launder as usual.
1/2 cup of Washing Soda + 1/2 cup of Hydrogen Peroxide to a sturdy load of whites. Allow to soak (Don't make up a big batch to store. The hydrogen peroxide loses fizz in 6 hours).Babies diapers can be soaked w/baking soda in mixture, instead of washing powder to make it "gentler"
To make your own, you just need water, washing soda (note that you can also use baking soda) and hydrogen peroxide. Just mix equal parts of peroxide and washing soda with a double part of water. For instance, mix 1 cup of water with ½ cups each of washing soda and peroxide.
This can be used to remove laundry stains, urine in carpets, and even de-skunk your dog! The catch is to only make what you will use at one time. And only use on light colored carpet or colorfast materials....I use baby shampoo instead of Dawn when de-skunking, because its mild and smells good...plus it doesnt irritate the eyes if you need to get close." data-componentType="MODAL_PIN
Homemade Bleach.. Ingredients: 1 cup hydrogen perioxide 2 Tablespoons lemon juice 15 cups of water Mix together and store in a large jug. I pour mine into a smaller bottles for convenience. Since the peroxide will oxidize and eventually loose strength it's best to use the homemade bleach within a month.
DIY "Bleach" is non-chlorine, and uses hydrogen peroxide, citric acid or lemon juice, water, and essential oils (Lasts longer when stored in dark or covered bottle)
