Homemade Stain Remover
Homemade Stain Remover (Shout) 2/3 cups Dawn Dishwashing Liquid (I had Palmolive on hand, so that's what I used) 2/3 cups ammonia 6 Tblsp baking soda 2 cups warm water Mix everything together and pour into a spray bottle. I got this one at Wal-Mart for about a buck. (I actually got SEVERAL of them for the array of natural/homemade cleaners I have started using. My inventory continues to expand!) Before you go to use it...if it's been sitting for awhile...give it a good shake. As you can see in this does tend to separate a bit. But after a quick shake it's good to go. To use: spray on stains as you normally would. I usually let mine "soak in" for a few minutes at least. Then launder as usual. In this case, since the chocolate stain posed a bit more of a challenge...I took a few extra seconds (literally, that's all it took) and rubbed the fabric together where I'd sprayed and when I was finished was somewhat shocked to see the stain was practically already GONE! It's still there....but barely visible. My old bottle of "real" Shout never did that!
