Buying multiple cleaning products can be expensive. Sometimes you can make a homemade version of a popular cleaning agent from products you may already have around your house. This is a guide about homemade OxiClean recipes.

If you are anything like me, you spend too much on laundry products each month. I especially would splurge on stain treatments that were overpriced, as I found their generic counterparts to often be ineffective or too diluted to cause any real savings on our monthly budget.
In comes homemade Oxi-clean:
Keep a jar of this next to your laundry machine and let soak in the stains for 15 minutes to overnight.
I have not had any problems with color bleeding, but as always test a small spot on clothes you may be unsure of, as to not have any surprises.

Did you ever see the OxiClean infomercial? I have the basic recipe for a clone, but I need a source where I can buy sodium percarbonate which is the main ingredient.
Oxi-clean is about 70% sodium percarbonate and 30% washing soda (sodium carbonate) with some fungicides added.
