This best stain remover is only 3 ingredients and removes even the toughest stains in fabrics. Learn which common household items will help you with your DIY cleaning.

What I didn’t realize was while I was giving my lesson, he was creating a masterpiece behind me on the long and heavy curtains that have hung in our church building for almost 100 years.

The cleaning recipe I used on these older and thicker curtain material is the same recipe I will be sharing with you today.

Ingredients Needed:
- 1 cup of hydrogen peroxide
- 1 cup of white vinegar
- Dish soap

In a large glass bowl mix the hydrogen peroxide and white vinegar (1 cup each).
Pour a generous amount of dish soap over the stain on your fabric and use a clean washcloth to dip into your vinegar/peroxide mix. Scrub the fabric vigorously.

If your stain is really prominent then don’t be too worried if you need to make another bowl of the peroxide/vinegar mix.
Apply more dish soap as needed to the stain and keep scrubbing with your washcloth.

Once the stain is removed (or starts to disappear), grab a second clean bowl filled with water and gently rinse off the peroxide/vinegar mixture.

You’ll want to grab a second clean washcloth to help you with this part of the cleaning project (especially if you’re cleaning curtains that aren’t easily removable).
And that’s it!

This best stain remover solution is simply a matter of adding soap, scrubbing, and rinsing.

    Will this work on my toddler clothes as well? Can I mix in a spray bottle for easy fast use?
