My Weapon for Mass Destructions

Photo Credit
It is official, I have a toddler running loose in my house! What this means is that a tornado of destruction whirls through my home daily. My little guy's latest project included painting my couch with fingernail polish, ARGH!!! While his big blue eyes get him out of quite a bit of trouble, it is going to take a little more  for moments like these.

I am sure you have seen renditions of this all over Pinterest and such, but it works! So, here is another post about it. I like to call it my "Weapon for Mass Destructions". I have used this formula to get out grass stains, arm  pit stains,mud, red punch and most recently fingernail polish. This formula is great for clothing, carpet and most fabrics.

-Hydrogen Peroxide
-Baking Soda
-Dish Soap (if the stain is oil based)

In a small bowl pour approx. 1/4 cup of Hydrogen Peroxide (more if you have a serious situation on your hands), add enough baking soda to make a thick paste. If the stain is oil based (like grease, lipstick, etc.) add a couple of drops of dish soap to mixture.

Paint the mixture on the stain and let it sit for about 15 minutes. Rinse with water or launder as you would regularly. Repeat if necessary. (You may want to test a small area before going all out, just to make sure you don't do more damage to your crime scene).

Good Luck,

  1. AWESOME! I'm SO happy to know this formula! You are the expert on figuring these things out!!!!

  2. So, the peroxide won't bleach the material?

    1. It will some materials, so test a small section first. Use it like you would Oxyclean (peroxide is the main component in it).
