Stain Remover for Clothes

READY IN: 24hrs 5mins
Recipe by Kaarin

My daughter spilled a cup of grape juice on her hot pink shirt. This did the trick, and the shirt's still pink! I got this from my sister in law and am posting it here so I don't lose it. The "dish detergent" is actually Cascade automatic dishwasher detergent-it wouldn't let me enter that as an ingredient.

Top Review by mums the word

A bit of a mixed review for me. This worked great on some fresh mud stains on a white hoodie and some dirty socks. However, it did not work well to remove set stains as others had experienced. I would definitely use again though as the socks looked way better. ( I used Electrasol too). Thx for posting this!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 13 cup dish detergent, cascade dishwasher detergent (powder or liquid)
  • 12 cup Clorox 2 Bleach (for colors)
  • 1 gallon hot water


  1. Mix all ingredients. Add the soiled clothes.
  2. Don't mix colors as this does make the dyes bleed some.
  3. Let soak 24 hours.
  4. Put all in a wash machine and run a regular cycle.
  5. Hope this works as well for you as it did for me!
