How many times do you think I washed my daughter’s dress trying to get these grease stains out? Too bad I don’t have an answer for you. The answer is I washed it so many times I lost count. I used stain sticks, stain sprays, everything I could think of to no avail.
I find it a satisfying challenge to get stains out. So this was driving me nuts. And I had just about given up. In fact, you will notice that in the top photo the dress is crazy wrinkled. That is because it had been sitting in a wadded up ball on top of my dryer. I had given up on it, but just couldn’t bring myself to throw one of my daughter’s favorite dresses away.
Then I saw this pin. It said underneath it: “Will take the stains out of almost ANYTHING…even if it is an old one. REALLY WORKS!!” I rubbed my chin and thought, hmmm. I have a the perfect thing to test this out on. Getting out a grease stain that has been washed and dried multiple times is quite a bold claim.
As you can see, this Super Stubborn Grease Stain Remover lives up to its claims. The dress has been rescued and my stain removal prowess remains intact.
Thank you to Modern Day Moms for this terrific formula of 1 part Dawn Dishwashing Liquid (the original blue kind) and 2 parts hydrogen peroxide. If you would like to make enough to store for future laundry needs, I suggest purchasing hydrogen peroxide in a spray bottle.
Hydrogen peroxide comes in a dark container because it loses effectiveness when exposed to the light. This spray bottle works perfectly for this since it is manufactured specifically for hydrogen peroxide. Bring on your worst stains and give it a try!If you are looking for a way to get icky mildew smells out of your towels, try this.
This Pin Rocks!
