This is a great recipe for cleaning whites. It will get almost any stain out of white clothes....and with 4 kids wearing white uniform shirts everyday, I have a lot of need for a great stain remover.
Word of warning: use in a well ventilated area, the fumes are wicked....but not harmful.
1 cup bleach
1 cup vinegar
1 cup baking soda
place bleach and vinegar in a big pan (dishpan works great), fill the pan up hot water. Add the white clothes, then add the baking soda. Once the bubbling stops, the stains should be gone...I tend to let the clothes sit for 15 minutes...once done sitting, I rinse the clothes, and then wash as normal. Gets the clothes so white, and stain free.
Have bought used stained drapes, and table cloths, used this recipes, and poof-just like new.
To get blood out of clothes, use hydrogen peroxide. Just poor on the spot, the peroside will bubble and remove the blood. Sometimes, you may need to keep pouring more on and may need to rub, but it will eventually get the blood out. Just rinse the peroxide from the clothes with cold water.
