Now you see it.. now you don't... Dirt, grease and grime from the pit at the car wash after replacing the chain that pulls the cars through... I haven't found any stains it won't take out.
Wow indeed!!! What ratio are you using and how did you come up with it? Good job!
It is just equal parts of Hydrogen Peroxide and regular strength Dawn dishwashing liquid, in a spray bottle. I found it on the internet somewhere, a couple of years ago I think. I use it on light and dark colors, I haven't had any fabric fade or bleach from it. I haven't found any stain It won't take out.
Do you use it in the clothes washer? Wouldn't that make an awful lot of suds? Very impressive result!
Yes I do use it in the washer and I have a front loading Samsung. It has never caused a lot of suds. I had to really soak these shorts good with it, that is why they are laying on a tarp, then used Gain HE detergent, no excess suds at all. You would think there would be so much suds it would ooze out of every possible crevice in the machine, under the utility room door and down the hall...but it doesn't, not in my machine anyway.
I have used the equal parts regular Dawn and white Vinegar mixed in a spray bottle for cleaning the shower/bathroom. Works great-really gets the soap scum.
I will have to try this peroxide formula for stains.
LOL! If you didn't get a lot of suds from using Dawn, then you must have very hard water.
I can't even put a small amount of Dawn in my washer as I have soft water (zero grains).
Im a bit hesitant to put Dawn back into my washer after my experience recently but this looks like it may be a God send for dealing with my husbands uniforms, so I may just suck it up and try it!
andi, if you have soft water it takes just a few less than a 1/2 oz of dawn to turn your machine into a bubble bath.
dave1812: El Paso has some pretty hard water according to the latest water quality report. Maybe a tbsp? perhaps less?
Looking forward to trying it.
Do you wash it by itself or with a regular load?
I washed these shorts with a couple of old towels. I always wash extra dirty things like this with the old towels, car drying towels from the garage.
