Homemade Oxiclean Recipe
1 cup Water
1/2 cup Hydrogen Peroxide
1/2 cup Washing Soda
Mix all ingredients together and store in a dark spray bottle.
Hydrogen peroxide looses its effectiveness if stored in a light container. Ever wondered why it was packaged up in a BROWN bottle? Now, we know! LOL
To use: Spray on soiled laundry and let it sit overnight. Or, if you have a number of clothes that are soiled, you make up a batch of this and soak them in it overnight. I just fill up my sink - soak then transfer to the washer. Then, launder as usual with my homemade laundry soap & fabric softner - for recipes of those; check here!
I've got more on the list to try - will post later with results! Always like to share! Hope you give these a try and go a little "greener" in life! Anything that eliminates the harsh products - has got to be better, right?
We are gearing up for baseball for Aric, Alex has his last track meet tomorrow and will be judging POULTRY over the weekend w/FFA! Piano is on the agenda to concentrate on this month (Apr/May) - we have 4-H Round Up - Share the Fun and "The Judge" in May - both boys have got to get it together with practicing and memorizing their 10 pieces on the piano! Wish us luck!
