Clothes get dirty – Fact!
My natural washing powder recipe does the job to clean dirty clothes (and well!) – Fact!
Sometimes stubborn stains still appear that need a bit of extra effort to remove – Fact!
It can be tempting to go out and buy a powerful commercial stain remover/bleaching agent. If you can avoid it, please don’t! At least try this recipe first.
I have trialled several different stain removing methods, and while I have a few options for spot treatments, I think I have hit the jackpot with this recipe for a natural pre-wash stain solution – mainly due to its simplicity and effectiveness, all with minimal effort!

So, If you have whites that are greying, greasy/oily spots or discolouring around collars and armpits, then give this a go. I have trialled this on whites, darks and colours.
Now, while I have never had issues with colour leaching, as usual, I have to remind you to patch test and proceed with caution as all clothing, materials and dyes are unique.
