    Default Need Spray N Wash/Stain Remover Spray recipe

    I have a 19mo old that is constantly staining his clothes. I would like something that I could spray on it immediately that will help offset the stain before I wash. Does anyone know a recipe of somethign I could make at home?

    Sunshine did u try the hm one and do they work? I was wondering because i recently bought the stick spray and wash for $2.49 at superstore 122g. Its worth it for me, it always gets rid of the stains no matter what and can be left , says up to a week. I never could leave laundry that lond , every day we 2 loads at least.

    I use the one with peroxide (I'm a nurse and come home with blood on my uniforms). I know it works

    The recipes that Sunshine has blogged really work. She gave them to me about a month ago and I have had no problems with my stained clothes.

    I just use regular hydrogen peroxide. It removes most things overnight. For grease stains, I use Ivory soap. Cheap, and it cuts grease on clothes great!

    Where do you find zoat soap? I have fels naptha...do you think that would work if I rubbed on? I have some shirts I would really love to get clean that have already been through the wash.

    ive never used fels naptha so i couldn't say, but if you already have it on hand it wouldn't hurt to try, right? i found my zoat at our little grocery store and sometimes at the dollar store. its cheaper at the grocery store tho. 69 cents for a huge bar when its a dollar at dollar general.

    I have heard from quite a few people alone that they will 'pre-treat' their stains with SUNLIGHT dish detergent with a tiny bit of water and massage into the stain with a used (cleaned of course) toothbrush. I have tried it a few times for food based stains however I have washed the clothes within 48 hours max.

    miss thrifty - isnt the SPRAY N WASH STAIN STICK a godsend!? I find that works on EVERY kind of stain there is. (The liquid version Im not so fond of) There was a sale on them at Superstore and Canadian Tire recently and I bought 6! One for: kitchen, bathroom, garage, car, bf's house and laundry room. You just apply and wash when YOU are ready - I LOVE IT!! (it even works on blood stains - thats what sold me)

    I dont like the Shout wipes (used to carry them in my purse) nor the Tide Stain stick (the two I have tried smelled worse then rancid milk left out in the sun to ripen for 3 days. Blech! Thank goodness that when I complained they sent me a box of reg Tide to apologize!) Im sticking with the tried and true Spray N Wash Stick - and to think I only tried it on a whim b/c it was the only thing left that I hadnt tried yet!

    How timely! I replaced my yellow printer ink and even though I've NEVER had a problem before, I noticed that after changing it tonight, my skirt had a nice yellow blob on it! How will I ever get this out? It is yellow INK after all.
