DIY Laundry Spot Remover
  • 1½ cups water
  • ¼ cup liquid castile soap (I like Dr. Bronners)
  • ¼ cup liquid vegetable glycerin (like this)
  • 5-10 drops of lemon essential oil
  • Glass spray bottle OR plastic squeeze-type bottle
  1. Mix all ingredients together
  2. Store the mixture in a glass container If using the essential oil
  3. To use, shake well and apply liberally to spots and stains
  4. Lightly rub mixture into fabric with fingertips
Works best if you treat the spot immediately and allow to soak before washing. Sometimes, I’ll soak garment overnight before washing it.
