Well-marketed stain removers usually get the job done they claim they do: they get the stains from clothes and materials. In fact, the enzymes used in these stain cleaners are better than good– they’re fantastic!
The issue is that instead of letting the enzymes do their natural work, commercial brands will often add artificial 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.
Fortunately, there are plenty of natural ways to remove stains without chemical additives and you already have them in your kitchen or restroom.
Stains are an inevitable part of everyday life. You stain your clothing, furniture, and even car seats. There are lots of destainers on the market, however these products are usually loaded with harsh chemicals and have to be used cautiously. When it comes to stains, the most important thing is knowing how to remove them. The key thing is responding quickly 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 efficiently. Thankfully, you don’t need strong chemical-laden stain removers to do the job effectively. This powerful homemade stain remover can handle even the most stubborn stains, and it’s made from a few things that you usually have around the house.
What you need:
- 100ml liquid soap
- 100ml 9% alcohol vinegar
- 100ml mineral water
- A spray bottle
- A brush
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.
