One of my quests is to replace chemicals used around the house, like laundry detergent, windshield washer fluid, and everyday cleaners. One of my favorite “green” products is stain remover. I have a seven-year-old. As you can imagine, her clothes are a mess, between school, work, and gymnastics.

This would be close to using Dreft or Shout, from what I can see.

DIY Stain Remover

1 tsp blue Dawn Dish Soap (which you should have around the house already since it’s useful for tons of green cleaners – hey, if they use it on the ducks, I figure it’s okay)

2 tbs Arm & Hammer baking soda (another very useful product for green cleaning)

3 tbs hydrogen peroxide (see where I’m going here, all these products are staples in a green house)

Mix and then wash!


Isn’t that simple? Do you have a product that works better? Tell me in the comments!
