Stain Remover

Ever pulled out a bunch of baby clothes from storage and found them all yellowed even when you were sure that you had washed them before you put them in storage? Ever been upset that you'd have to retire a nice tablecloth because of a chocolate stain? Ketchup? Dirt? Grass? You get the picture. I found the recipe for this stain removing concoction years ago from some online forum. I used to use Shout for my stain removing, but this is better.

Best Stain Remover

1 part Dawn Ultra (dish soap)
1 part any regular liquid detergent
1/4 part water

Directions: Mix the above ingredients in a bottle and shake to mix. Don't put it in a spray bottle, as it will get clogged. Try a squirt type of bottle, like an old dish soap container.

To treat stains: treat the stain by squirting some remover directly on the stain and rub. If the stain is especially stubborn, add a bit of COLD water and rub. Don't use hot water, as that can set stains. Once treated, you can throw it in the laundry basket and launder as usual when you get around to it.

* Take caution when using on khaki clothing. Khaki seems to be very sensitive to any stain remover.
