Today I have something very exciting to share with all of you. You may not find it quite as exciting as I thought it was, but it definitely made my day. With 3 small children I definitely spend a LOT of time each day doing laundry and even more time trying to get all the crazy stains out of their clothes, but I found something that is definitely going to cut that time down for sure. I don’t about you, but I have pinned many different remedies on pinterest lately, one in particular that I have been meaning to try for some time but just hadn’t gotten around to actually buying the products. Well I should have done it a lot sooner, let me just tell you. I followed these instructions from Modern Day Mom, but its really so simple. Just mix one part dawn (some comments recommended to use the orignial blue kind), to two parts hydrogen peroxide. Some recipes I read also added a tablespoon of baking soda for the added scrubbing, so I did also add the baking sodae. I had an old Shout spray bottle that I used to put my mixture in, it was much easier to spray the solution on for me, but you don’t have to do it this way.
The subject I used to test out this solution was my son’s baseball uniform. He’s just 3 and plays t-ball, but he sure does manage to get that uniform quite dirty. I had not been able to get his pants clean for weeks, the stains just would not come out, no matter how many times I soaked them in oxi clean or bleach, they still remained. So that is what lead me to this solution. I thoroughly soaked the stained areas in the solutions, then let it sit for 20 minutes or so. I then came back and scrubbed the areas a little and resprayed them and let them soak for another 10 minutes. I then threw them in the wash and look how amazing they came out. Check out these before and afters.
I was amazed! I really am. They weren’t perfect, but boy did it make a huge difference, and seriously took out stains that I hadn’t been able to get out for weeks. And I also have to add, that there was a stain on the blue part of his jersey as well that I had sprayed and it came out of the blue without any issues, so it also works great on colors! I was so excited that I then went and sprayed a whole pile of laundry that had stains I was trying to remove and I have to say, it all came out! Can you believe it. I couln’t. You have to go try this right now.
Oh and another great thing, the dish soap costed me under $2 and the hydrogen peroxide I had gotten at Costco in a 2 pack for under $2. You can’t beat that! Are you all ready to go do some laundry? I have to admit laundry is definitely not one of my favorite things to do, I think my mom and mother in all would agree on this subject, since they both nicely do all my laundry and help me get caught up when they are in town. Isn’t that wonderful! It truly is WONDERFUL! I hope you all have fun removing ALL THOSE STAINS!
