Sometimes this worked sometimes it didn't. Maybe if I used a soap that was stronger then Joy?

Ingredients Nutrition

  • Joy dishwashing soap
  • nonsudsing ammonia
  • water


  1. Mix equal parts full-strength, nonsudsing ammonia; dishwashing (not dishwasher) liquid-check label to be absolutely sure it doesn't contain bleach; and water.
  2. If you like, put the solution in a handy spray bottle; label it clearly.
  3. Then keep the bottle next to the washing machine so that, as you're sorting clothes to be washed, it's easy to spray any stains.
  4. Note: be sure to wash sprayed clothes immediately!
