I would like to introduce you to another DIY cleaner that COMPLETELY rocked my mothering world!
Just as a reminder, so far we have covered:
And the PERFECT storage system for all of your DIY cleaners!
But, as a mother, I am now showing you one of the most exciting cleaners out there! Of course, it can be used on any clothing stain that you need to treat but, as all nursing mothers know, the toughest stain EVER is the BLOWOUT STAIN!
With my daughter I went through the top stain removers on the market…spent the money and then had to waste most of it because it simply didn’t do the job!
To add insult to injury, we had to go ahead and throw many onsies away because I simply couldn’t get out that obnoxious yellow stain, wasting even MORE money.
Stain remover after stain remover was prepared and tested…and stain remover after stain remover FAILED!
So as I was building a full line of DIY cleaners that would cover every cleaning need in our home, I put off the stain remover research as long as I could because I didn’t have high hopes of finding a winner.
But then I woke up one day – one magical day – and knew something exciting was going to happen! So I jumped on my computer during the first available naptime and started researching…and found THE recipe that has already saved many a onesie!
It has passed the test in our home and I am so excited to be able to pass it on to yours!
This recipe is actually the simplest so far – and it requires absolutely no mixing or measuring!
- Buy a container of hydrogen peroxide (with a “squirt” lid) and a small spray bottle from Walmart.
- Now switch the lids.
- Fill up the spray bottle (that now has a “squirt” lid) with dish soap.
- Grab two old toothbrushes to reserve for this purpose.
Your are now ready for your first blowout!
When the dirty deed happens, follow these steps as soon afterward as possible.
- Squirt the area with dish soap.
- Scrub with the toothbrush.
- Spray with hydrogen peroxide.
- Let set for five minutes.
Presto! The ultimate stain will be gone!
One final note: you may have noticed that I told you to reserve two toothbrushes. This would only apply to the mother who is currently dealing with blowout stains. I have simply found that I would rather use one toothbrush for the stains that come from my children’s diaper and a DIFFERENT one for all other stains. 🙂
Enjoy! And let me know what you think!
