What is the recipe for homemade Oxiclean portable stain remover in that little purse size squirt bottle?
By Mary Annie from Camas, WA
A mixture of baking soda, peroxide and water.
MCW, do you know what the proportions are?
The recipe we have used for stain removal is an 8-ounce bottle of hydrogen peroxide, 1/4-cup baking soda (sodium bicarbonate) & a drop of hand dishwashing liquid (just a drop or two no more). Mix & dissolve all well, put in spray bottle & use immediately, storage will cause it to leak from the spray bottle. This has not 'bleached' any fabric or textile that we've used it on, but always test first. Treat the stain & allow to dry naturally, repeat if necessary, stains & odors aren't always fully removed the first attempt. This works by a chemical reaction between the ingredients so is best used within about 15 minutes. It works for urine stains also, cat/dog/human.
