Well-marketed stain removers usually do the job they claim they do: they get the stains out of clothing and fabrics. In fact, the enzymes used in these stain removers are better than good – they’re great!
The problem is that instead of letting the enzymes do their natural work, commercial brands will often add synthetic chemicals to boost the efficiency of the product or prolong its shelf-life. These added chemicals can irritate sensitive skin and instigate an allergic reaction.
Plus, if the stain remover comes in a spray bottle (instead of a stain stick, for example), each spray contaminates your indoor air quality.
Luckily, there are plenty of natural ways to remove stains without chemical additives and you already have them in your kitchen or bathroom.
Stains are an inevitable part of everyday life. You stain your clothes, furniture, and even car seats. There are many destainers on the market, but these products are typically full of harsh chemicals and need to be used cautiously. When it comes to stains, the most important thing is knowing how to remove them. The key thing is reacting promptly as soon as the stain appears.
The longer it’s left untreated, the more it settles in and the harder it becomes to remove it effectively. Luckily, you don’t need strong chemical-laden stain removers to do the job successfully. This powerful homemade stain remover can handle ever the most stubborn stains, and it’s made of a few things that you normally have around the house.
What you need:
- 100ml liquid soap
- 100ml 9% alcohol vinegar
- 100ml mineral water
- a spray bottle
- a brush
What you do:
After mixing all the ingredients together, use an empty spray bottle to store the mixture. Spray on the stain you want to remove and leave it to act for 10-15 minutes. Then scrub the stain with a brush. For older and more stubborn stains you can’t remove at first, repeat the process once again.
