Stain Removal DIY
Learning the ins and outs of motherhood comes with lots of searching for solutions on a daily basis. For the longest time I have searched high and low for stain removal that works on ink, melted crayon,ketchup,mustard,juice,dirt,grass, etc the list goes on and on but finding what actually works may not be as easy as you think! I’ve had success with the lovely Grandmas Secret Spot Remover for a numerous amount of stains and it’s great it comes in a spray bottle or a squeeze spot remover!

I’ve also tried the Oxiclean Max Spray cleaner and the Oxiclean detergent powder that works pretty well for almost all mild stains but not the tough hard to get out stains.
Then there’s the Spray n Wash that has been around for ages but does it work? I’ve used it lots of times for all kinds of kid stains and have never gotten a full successful stain removal. I’ve sprayed let soak for hours and still hasn’t worked for me so definitely not on my list of products that I would recommend.
I Sometimes feel like my kids are just the messiest ever and they somehow get the tough caked on stains that are impossible to remove! Can anyone else relate?!? I have gotten so frustrated sometimes especially on a brand new white shirt or light colored shorts which shows up like Christmas during a Halloween party! And I will admit in the past I have thrown away brand new clothes because I tried and the stain was so horrific that I gave up 🙁 But I tried so many stain spot removals that I finally made my own DIY that actually works on the first wash. Yeeeeesssss!!!!??!!! No joke. Those tough hard to get out lovely pen inks explosion,pen marks, crayon melting,ketchup,chocolate ice cream, grass stains, and even the pretty marker drawing! I’m gonna warn you it’s not the best smelling spray to make but for me if it works I’ll try anything.
Supplies You Will Need:
(1)Spray bottle(empty),Vinegar(any brand white distilled),Soap(any brand I prefer Gain)
Step One-Fill up the empty spray bottle with Vinegar 3/4 (strong smelling odor feel free to use a mask).
Step Two-Add Soap(A good squeeze does the job!) & Shake Shake Shake.
Step Three-Spray stain until area is soaked. You will see stain foamy from soap!
Then throw in wash right away, you can let sit out for 15 mins. But works for me either way. Just choose your preference.
