Homemade Spot Remover

I am looking for a recipe to spot-clean my cotton t-shirts, white blouses, cotton pants, as well as my school-teacher garments. I am spending too much money on spot-removal products at the supermarket. Does anyone have a cleaning solution for me? Thank you in advance!

Some one on this site recommmended Dawn dishwashing liquid and I've been using it with great success.

But there are a lot of other remedies on this site too.

Good luck!

You cannot beat original Dawn dish detergent, better than any degreaser I've ever tried.

My mother and grandmother have used this trick for many years. This is for fruit stains. Lay the stained garment over a colander in the sink. Pour boiling water over it until the stain is gone.

I find that making a paste of baking soda and water works on just about everything from the kitchen sink to fine fabrics. (12/04/2008)

I find a mixture of equal parts dishwasher powder, and Biz or color safe powdered bleach, with about a gallon of boiling hot water works wonders!

Mix the powders together, in your heat resistant container or sink (I use my crock pot crocker pot), and then add the water as soon as it boils. Stir the mixture, and add your garment or whatever needs treating. Stir every once in a while and allow to sit over night.


You should be pleased with the results. To make sure I get all of the soap out after treatment, I rinse the garment in cold water, and follow with a sink full of cold water and about a cup of white vinegar, gently wringing the garment, to remove suds. I've never seen this fail. Hope this helps. (12/04/2008)
