A Fabulous Stain Remover...

Wish I could say I came up with the idea of mixing these two ingredients, but nope, I did not... I found this article awhile back on the Glamour website entitled, "The Only Spot Remover You'll Ever Need."  Of course, I wanted to try this spot remover, on my 3 white tops that now have yellowing, under the arms. Ugh! I can't believe I'm telling you this ~ It sounds disgusting, right?! But I can't be the only one that has this problem...




The stain remover mixture consists of one part Dawn Dishwashing Liquid mixed with two parts Hydrogen Peroxide. I mixed mine in a spray bottle from the dollar store. I then spayed the fabric, and with a old toothbrush I scrubbed for a few minutes. On one of the tops I sprinkled with a little baking soda for some extra scrubbing power. I wanted to see if that top came out any better than the other two. Guess what? It was exactly the same! So don't bother with the baking soda...





I know I know... It is really gross, but I had to show you these so you would know just how fabulous this stain remover is!



As soon as I started spraying the fabric with the stain remover, the yellow ick (like that word?) started foaming off the shirt. It was amazing. Really it was! Well... I thought so.  After spraying/scrubbing for a few minutes, I just let the stain remover soak in for an hour. Then threw them in the washer as usual. Nothing fancy there. I'm very excited to be able to wear my white tops again! The yellow is completely gone...









See... This is a fabulous stain remover! You have to try this. Really you do!
