Top Tip Tuesday: Make your own stain remover- SO EASY!
As my mom and I were standing in her laundry room several months ago she says, “Do you want to know how I started making my own stain remover?…. It only took me FIFTY YEARS to figure it out…(*rolls eyes and chuckles*)”…
She proceeds to tell me the most ridiculously simple, obvious, “duh, why didn’t I think of that” tip.
After your old bottle is empty, fill it up about 1/3 of the way with your regular LIQUID LAUNDRY DETERGENT, then fill the rest of the bottle to the top with WATER.
I’ve been doing this for months now and let me tell you, it works. It works WELL!
Now for a HEAVY DUTY stain removal tip I learned recently at a Ladies Bible Study. I’m talking, eight year old boy, likes to go outside in his socks, and you find him running through the garden…. which has JUST had a load of MANURE dumped on it…..kind of tip. (not that I have any experience with these kind of stains or anything) 🙂
First, keep a small tub in your laundry room. Fill it with water, a bit of laundry detergent, and SOAK your garment in it. You will be surprised at how much this helps.
Next, take an ordinary kitchen SPOON, and SCRAPE the stain. Keep scraping….spray with your homemade stain
remover…scrape….wash….repeat if necessary.
It’s important for me to get stains completely out, for RESALE purposes. (We’ll talk about that later) 🙂
May the LORD be praised as we fight stains for His Glory!!
“So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.” 1st Corinthians 10:31
