Spring is just around the corner, and you know what that means! Warmer weather, green trees, fresh outdoor smells and… stains?
With spring comes rain, mud and grass all over your carpet and hardwood floors, and potentially your favorite yellow dress if pets and children are nearby.
But fear not, because where nature and human error fail you, the Internet makes a way!
Home remedy YouTube channel Homevada put together this helpful guide to removing stains from clothes and fabrics. I’ll walk you through the process that’ll help you get your linens in ‘like-new’ shape again with the use of natural ingredients.
What You’ll Need
All of these ingredients are natural, meaning you don’t have to fear any chemical residue or harsh allergic reactions as you might have with other, artificial stain removers.
- Baking soda
- Vegetable glycerin
- Lemon essential oil
- A spray bottle
How To Prepare
To turn the above ingredients into a powerful natural stain remover, take one and a half cups of water and add a quarter cup of the liquid vegetable glycerin. Then, add two tablespoons of baking soda and 15-20 drops of lemon essential oil.
Stir this mixture and then transfer it to a spray bottle for easy application.
How To Use
Once you’ve got your natural stain remover in the spray bottle, apply it directly to the stain and let it sit for about 30 minutes. Then, rinse it out with water and voila! Stain-be-gone.
The best part is that although you still probably wouldn’t want your children to chug your natural stain remover or douse it all over themselves, you don’t have to worry about the potentially fatal risks posed by cleaners such as bleach and Clorox.
