Glenda at Busy-at-Home has created her own stain remover. She says it not only works, but it's inexpensive and non-toxic.
It only has three ingredients that may already be in your house and water. As an added bonus she gives you her DIY laundry detergent.
Name brand stain removers can be upwards of $4 or $5 for a bottle that is less than one quart in size, depending on the brand you purchase. Some are even double that depending on where you shop.
Glenda's homemade stain remover makes a one-quart batch, and it cost her 88 cents. When calculating the price per quart, for one batch, she used 63 cents worth of Dawn, 16 cents worth of washing soda and nine cents worth of ammonia. She said it costs a fraction over 20cents per 75-load bottle. I wish I could figure out things like that.
Now, if you're interested in the recipe, and want to see her results in a cleaning challenge, you have to visit Glenda's blog, Busy-at-Home. The link will take you to the stain remover story. Tell her you found her on Barbara's Beat as MOMtrepreneur Tip of the Day.
