Getting rid of stains

Postby greenguy9 » January 8th, 2010, 2:52 pm

Does anyone have any experience with what is best for removing stains from clothing or furniture? I would ideally like something homemade and non-toxic.

Few different options for natural cleaners:

1.) You can always mix baking soda and water for a nice all-purpose cleaner (about 3-4 tablespoons of baking soda for 1 quart of water).

2,) You can also try a combination of white vinegar and water - works well for grease and other kitchen stains.

3,) For the bathroom, instead of bleach, try a combination of water and hydrogen peroxide (about 1/4 cup of hydrogen peroxide to a cup of water).

Hope these help! :D

I use an amazing product that works to remove all kinds of stains, it all natural and the most amazing cleaner I have ever used. I have always been partial to the traditional cleaners one might find at walmart however when my family started having breathing problems from the fumes I had to find alternatives, and I have to say I will never go back. I save money and clean my home without harsh chemicals. pkease check out for more information. I would love to help.
