Homemade Stain Remover

by GettingFreedom on March 25, 2010

In a house full of children, a good stain remover is a necessity.  One day while washing a load of my 4 year old’s stained up jeans–I ran out of my beloved commercial stain remover.  I knew that detergent alone was just not going to be enough, so I turned to the next best thing, Borax.  I whipped up a solution and poured into an empty spray bottle and prayed that it would do the trick.

To my delight, it was, and I’ve been using it ever since.

Stain Remover

4 Tbsp Borax

Hot Water

Spray Bottle

Dissolve Borax in hot water and pour into spray bottle.  Spray on tough laundry stains.  For some stain, you may need to let sit for a few hours before washing.

Considering a box of Borax is under $3.50–I would guess that a bottle of Homemade Stain Remover would cost pennies.  Now that is my kind of Stain Remover!
