Have You Seen This!? Homemade Stain Remover

Have you seen THIS post all over Pinterest? It's from One Good Thing By Jillee, a blog FULL of awesome. 

Homemade stain remover. And I thought I'd give it a try.

The original "recipe" is this: (but I halved it to try...)
  • 2/3 C Dawn
  • 2/3 C ammonia 
  • 6 Tablespoons baking soda
  • 2 C warm water
Shake it all together in a spray bottle. Shake your boot-aaay while you do it. The kids love that.

Grab a preschooler's jacked-up white t-shirt. Cry about the spaghetti on it because you were too tired to remember to get it off of her before dinner.Wonder if the stain remover will mess up the glitter bits. Then don't care because there is tomato sauce on the damn thing. (*you may omit and replace this step with one more suitable to your household.)
bleep bleepity bleep.
Grab your handy-dandy stain remover, give it a shake. Spray. Pray. Rub it a little bit.
Holy moly.

Wow. Jillee, I could kiss you! It didn't even mess up the glittery bits! That slight shadow of sauce was even GONE after washing. AMAZING.
