This past weekend I worked on an afternoon laundry room makeover in our basement. It’s amazing what a few bins and baskets will do for a space when it comes to getting organized. It’s a project for Wayfair so I will hopefully be sharing the final reveal in a week or two. In the meantime, I decided to try my hat at creating a homemade stain remover for laundry. Personally, I have never been big into make homemade laundry detergent or stain removers but so many people love it and swear by it so I gave it a try.homemade stain remover / Laundry stain remover


So easy! I found an easy homemade recipe at My Life in Pink and it worked like a charm. I decided to add water to mine but you don’t have to. My gram said this is a great recipe and similar to hers from years ago. I’ll have to share that laundry concoction soon!


2 parts peroxide

2 parts Water

 1 part Dawn dish soap

1 part baking soda

We are lucky enough to have 3 laundry rooms. I know, kind of crazy but with four generations living under one roof, you need lots of washers and dryers! You can see our main floor laundry room here and this is our basement laundry room before the makeover.

Stay tuned for the full laundry room reveal soon. The homemade stain remover looks super cute in it’s new home and it actually works. Anything with Dawn + baking soda + peroxide has to work right? I sure did ;).

PS. check out our upstairs laundry room makeover from last summer…..what do you think about the DIY shelving?

  1. I remember my mom always using Dawn detergent to scrub out stains. I’ll have to remember to give this a try.

  2. Does the peroxide lose effectiveness in a clear container?

  3. I have all these products on hand! And plenty of stains 🙂

  4. Yes, Jessica…hydrogen peroxide, needs to be in a dark bottle…otherwise it loses it’s potency…
