Alright, lets face it…money’s tight.  I’m out of laundry stain remover and thought, hey, I could make some, right?!  So, I went on-line to search for a good, simple recipe.  Well,  good news—I found one for you all!!!

What do you do when the bar of soap is almost gone—annoying, isn’t it?!  Well, now you don’t have to waste it by tossing it, AND you don’t have to hold on to it just to keep from feeling guilty about wasting it.  I’ve got a solution!

Save those small pieces, along with any small bars of soap you might have (like from a hotel) in a jar.

When the jar is half full, add boiling water.

Mix soap and water until soap is melted.

Once cooled, this will create a soap jelly.

Rub the jelly on to pretreat stains, and let it sit until you get to it.

ANOTHER solution??  Try dish soap!  This works great when you can put it on immediately after contact, and then throw it into the basket until laundry day!  And don’t we all thank the Lord for that?!  Because who has time to wash right away?!

STILL looking for more solutions???  Try these:

Recipe #1

1 cup hot water
1/2 cup baking soda
1/2 cup hydrogen peroxide

Directions:

  • Mix ingredients then store in spray bottles. Spot treat stains then soak overnight.

Recipe #2

2 quarts water
1/2 cup ammonia
2 TBS laundry detergent

Directions:

  • Mix ingredients then store in spray bottles. Spot treat stains then soak overnight.
  • Do not use with bleach.

Hopefully these will help you save a little money and keep your clothes looking your best.  Because you deserve to live Le Dolce Vita!
