Southern Mom Loves: The Laundry Stain Remover Recipe the Pros Use {So Easy & Cheap!}

The Laundry Stain Remover Recipe the Pros Use {So Easy & Cheap!}

Friday, May 3, 2019

Hi, guys. I've got an amazing cleaning DIY for you today: A three-ingredient laundry stain remover that the dry cleaning pros use to get out even the toughest stains! I got this tip and tried it out on some long set-in grease stains and it worked like a charm! It's easy and cheap and definitely one recipe you should have in your laundry repertoire.

I'm usually pretty careful when it comes to my clothing, but the stains I seem to get most often are those clear grease stains from cooking. I don't always wear an apron and when the grease pops, it can leave a stain that you won't notice unless you look in a mirror.

These stains leave darker colored marks on your shirt and are impossible to get out. I've tried everything from stain sticks to oxygenated cleaners and nothing has worked. Since these are some of my most-loved t-shirts, I decided to try one more long-shot: an old recipe that I got from a former dry cleaner years ago. Spoilers: It sounds too simple, but it totally works!

I'm putting mine in a dish scrubber so that I can have an all-in-one scrubber and keep some on hand, but you don't have to do this, but if you want to, you can even find these at the dollar store!

Pro Laundry Stain Remover


  • 2 Tablespoons baking soda
  • 1/4 cup hydrogen peroxide
  • 2 Tablespoons blue Dawn dish soap

1. Mix ingredients well. If adding to a scrubber, you may want to use a little funnel to help.

2. Apply generously to the stains.
3. Scrub it in.

4. Let sit for an hour.
5. Wash as usual.

That's it!

It worked perfectly on those dark grease stains and those suckers were well set-in! It saved some of my favorite t-shirts without any kind of fading or bleaching, so I can well recommend this recipe!

Happy Cleaning, y'all!
