I made some laundry stain remover a few weeks ago but wanted to try it out for a while before I shared the results.

I’m happy to report that after using it regularly for the past few weeks (and having two kids under the age of 5, I use it ALL the time!), that I love the homemade product even more than my all-time favorite, Shout!

I originally saw the stain remover posted here and had just run out of Shout, so it was the perfect time for me to give it a try.

I was a little skeptical at first that it would work as well, but so far it’s worked just as well, or better, than Shout or Spray & Wash ever did.
I even used it on a pair of jeans that had dried blackberry stains (the husband was the culprit this time) and it completely removed any trace of the berry!

Here’s what you need:

2/3 cup Dawn dish detergent

2/3 cup ammonia

6 TBSP baking soda

Mix everything together in a bowl with 2 cups of warm water.
Using a funnel, pour into a spray bottle.

To treat, spray directly on fabric.
I usually let the solution sit on the stain for a while before washing, but it starts working immediately, and several times I’ve rubbed the fabric together and the stain has dissolved completely in just a minute or two!

Awesome stuff, and much more cost-effective than my old standard, Shout.
