Tackle Tough Stains With These DIY Laundry Products

Stains can be a nuisance on some of our favorite outfits, and the potential dry-cleaning bill can be even more of a headache. Thankfully, there are some great methods you can use to replenish your favorite garments without having to break the bank. Even without the stains, some of these everyday household products can be incredibly beneficial to maintaining the color and quality of your best pieces.


Vinegar is your best friend when it comes to removing those hard to beat stains from crayon, rust, ink, and grass. A good pre-treat with vinegar will combat those tough stains and leave you and your family’s favorite items looking good as new. When it comes to treating a stain with vinegar, time is of the essence. Pre-treat stains as quickly as possible for the best results.

Baking Soda

Mix this household staple with a bit of water and you can create a phenomenal general stain remover. You can also rub straight baking soda onto some stains directly to help draw out the staining substance and preserve the fabric of your clothes. Letting the applied baking soda sit for a few hours can increase the effectiveness and after a good wash can help remove the stain entirely. 

Hydrogen Peroxide

This incredibly inexpensive household must-have can be a force to be reckoned with when it comes to laundry. Hydrogen peroxide can be used to whiten your whites and remove various stains and odors. Be careful to not combine it with a few other common products like chlorine bleach or vinegar so as not to dilute its effectiveness, but used as a standalone product this affordable alternative it a must-have for your laundry cycle. 

Homemade Laundry Detergent

Even if you’re not fighting daily stains, you can still whip up your own homemade laundry detergent for a fraction of the price that you would spend on popular brands. There are countless recipes for the best homemade detergent, but our favorite is nice and simple. A few ounces of bar soap, borax, and washing soda can help you yield the equivalent of an entire container of a store-bought detergent. Put a hole in your laundry pile and not your wallet this year with these DIY hacks. Tackle stains and rejuvenate your favorite outfits with just a few household items lying around!
