The ONLY Stain Remover you’ll ever need!
I have tried many methods of removing stains from clothing over the years. This homemade spot remover really does the job, and it is inexpensive and easy to make.
The other day when I was mixing up a fresh bottle of my favorite homemade stain remover, I realized I have never shared it here on the blog.
Probably in part because it’s been all over pinterest for years and I assumed everyone already knows about it. Yet I’m surprised every time I tell someone about this miracle cleaner and they had never heard about it. Which made me think, I would be doing an injustice to my readers who have NOT heard about it, if I didn’t share this life changing formula.
Back in 2008 Glamour magazine shared an article
The story tells a tale of a favorite dress and a glass of red wine. After thinking the dress was completely ruined, a friend let her in on a little stain removal secret that she has sworn by ever since…………….
The recipe for homemade Miracle Cleaner
1 part blue Dawn dishwashing liquid
2 parts 3% hydrogen peroxide
Mix and pour or spray directly on stain, launder as usual and watch it disappear like MAGIC.
I keep a bottle of this Miracle Cleaner in my laundry room to spray on stains, and it has yet to fail me. Besides usual food and other mysterious stains that appear on my family’s clothes, I have used the Miracle Stain Remover to successfully removed set in grease on a favorite t-shirt, yellow arm pit stains, chocolate, blood and tire grease when a white hat was driven over after being lost in the street.
If I’m worried about a really tough stain, like the hat or yellow arm pit stains, I will use an old toothbrush to scrub the stain remover into the fabric (you can also sprinkle with a little baking soda to make a paste for a little extra scrubbing power) and let it sit about an hour before washing. If it’s a large stain, as was the case with the dress, you can mix the formula and add it to a bucket of hot water and soak the entire garment for a few hours. If the stain does not come out completely the first time, try it a second time, but it has worked the first time on everything I have tried.
As with any stain removers, always do a spot test, but if it’s an garment that’s already a loss because of the stain, what do you have to loose?
I have used the Miracle Cleaner on carpet with great success as well, and I know others have used it on upholstery, grout, and many other items around the home! I would love to hear if you have tried the Miracle Cleaner, and what results you had!
