    • Not a spray as such. These methods may take a little longer but they’re worth it for grubby clothes. You could rub a little laundry soap on the stain or even dishwashing liquid (a low-toxin one, of course!).

  1. This is the best stain remover ever. I tell everyone about this quick little life saver. Tough on stains but gentle on clothes.

  2. Hi Kristy,
    I’m wondering if i can use this in its powered form just as your would a store brought nappy whitener?

    • It’s not really a recipe that will ever be powdered form…? You can use sodium percarbonate as a nappy whitener replacement (to boost cleaning power), just make sure it is activated with warm/hot water.

  3. I’ve used this recipe many times to remove stains and get whites white again. It’s so much cheaper, simpler and healthier than what is available in supermarkets. Why pay for fragrance, fillers and goodness knows what? Two simple ingredients – that’s all you need – and water.

    • Hi Kristy. Two questions.
      If using sodium percarbonate can it be premixed with the washing soda in a jar for storage?
      Also, can essential oils be added to the soaking mixture?

      • I’ve mixed the two before and haven’t had issues. Just keep it free from heat and moisture. Yes you can add oils to the soak – maybe tea tree or lemon?

  4. After trying many Supermarket options my husband’s white shirt was still yellow & destined for the bin; that was until I tried Krissy’s Stain Solution. It has now been transformed! Seeing is to be believed!

  5. This is one of my favourite recipes!! It gets used for lots of things but my favourite is the “end of term school shirt soak” which miraculously makes grubby grey shirts bright yellow again. I’ve used it for ages but still get excited with the results (maybe I’m just a cleaning nerd)

  6. This is THE BEST soak ever. I’ve used it to get mould out of stinky wet soccer jerseys, hubbies collars and underarms are stain and smell free and the kids white (seriously who chooses white for kids!) school shirts go from grey back to white at the end of every term. Literally recommend this to anyone that mentions the word stain. Thanks Krissy!

  7. I love this stain solution! I have removed many difficult stains (old and new) with this simple solution. Thank you so much for the recipe Krissy!

  8. Krissy I am definitely going to try this recipe, but id like to know if i can use a stronger peroxide and dilute it down to save money? Eg using a 35% peroxide and measure out 12 or 13mLs with a syringe??

    • Yes you can use a stronger peroxide and dilute it down to 3%. Although, I have compared prices and I’m not sure it’s cheaper..? Also keep in mind that HP will degrade fairly quickly (4hrs or so) once exposed to light.
