Super Duper Stain Secret

Ok, if you’re pinterest Savvy and hate stains on clothes, you’ve probably already seen this remedy! Or maybe you’re searching for one. I wanted to add my personal experiences with this to the fray!

Dawn soap (I get the blue stuff. Blue is awesome)

Hydrogen peroxide

Baking soda.

(you can see the original post I found about it here, and you can follow my “for the home” pinterest board here)

I tried JUST peroxide and dawn, and it works … I’d say 50/50. But you add in the Baking soda, and all of the sudden magic happens! I’m sure there’s a suiper awesome chemical reaction happening there… I don’t know what it is, I won’t even pretend.

So I got a costume from a friend. Well, I am BORROWING a costume from a friend. I’m really sensitive about borrowing people’s things and especially for my kids who I can’t guarantee will be as careful as I like. Especially when they go off to school and get rowdy. You know how kids are… when they’re sugared up. (Even though as my husband would point out that candy=hyperness is a fallacy. And it is… but kids with candy=rowdy kids, it’s correlation not causation.) Anyway, sugared up, weird colored hair and face paint, and … low and behold she had red stuff all over the outfit. I felt like a girl version of charlie browncharlie-brown-arghSo I said “I really hope this works” and tried out the recipe above. I squirted on the Dawn. I probably did too much, a little goes a long way … and then the hydrogen peroxide. I mix that around together. I use my fingers. yep. wait a minute (ok, like 15 seconds) and add on the Baking soda. awesome. aw yiss. i grate that stuff in with my nails, it makes a putty/sludge thing that just gets all of the gunk out.  Since this was a dress thing, and It needed to be dry for trick-or-treating … so i wrapped up the bottom in a grocery bag to keep that part dry. I rinsed the top out in the sink, and VOILA! It’s gone. I am SO SO SO happy (and so is my friend I’m sure!)

To be fair, that’s a fresh stain. Fresh stains come out pretty easy. What about set in stains?  Well I’ve got a 50/50 on set in stains. I’ve only tried on some of them once, so I’m not giving up. I got a few baby clothes I can try this on, and this time… Take pictures! *GASP!*

I hope you’re having a happy Halloween!
