Homemade Natural Stain Remover

 

There are many different ways to make and use homemade natural stain removers, I tend to buy them most of the time. However, when you are short on time and want really need a quick solution to get a stain out of your clothes or anything else in your house. You might want to try mixing coconut oil with a solution to help rid the stain loose. Coconut oil is great for so many uses, and can really help to loosen up stains in a short period of time.

If you have a stain on your carpet, rug, or clothing, you might be trying to use a store-bought product to remove the stain. Not only are these not always the most effective method, but they often contain harsh ingredients you might not want on your body or in your home. A better option is to turn to natural stain removers, such as those listed here.

 

Homemade Basic Stain Remover Spray:

This first natural stain remover only contains a few simple ingredients in order to help you get rid of stains on clothing or other fabrics without using any harsh ingredients. You can put the finished mixture in a spray bottle and keep it in your laundry room. Spray stains before putting clothes or linens in the washer, and it should work great.

For the simplest recipe, you just need some natural soap, such as Dr. Bronners Sal Suds, water, and coconut oil, plus a spray bottle. Combine the ingredients in the bottle, then spray it on the stains before washing.

Other Ingredients to Use

You can also use a variety of other natural ingredients to make your own stain remover spray. You may find your own formula that works best for you and want to keep it a secret, or you can find a combination that people often like to use. Here are some of the best options for natural ingredients when talking about a stain remover:

* Baking Soda
* Vinegar
* Hydrogen Peroxide
* Natural Soap
* Coconut Oil
* Lemon Juice
* Oxygen Bleach

When you are putting together your very own natural stain remover, make sure you are careful about it and that you don’t test it on a large piece of fabric or clothing. Test it on something like a towel first to make sure it doesn’t change the color of the material or cause other bad reactions.

Once you have made your natural stain remover with coconut oil and other natural ingredients, make sure you never rub the stain. Whether it is in carpet, your clothing, or linens, blotting should always be done. If you catch the stain following a spill when it is wet, blot it dry with paper towels first. You can then spray the stain and blot it once more. The only exception is when it is on clothing you are about to put in the washer. You can apply the stain remover, let it sit for a few minutes, then put it in the washer.

I hope this helps!

Target haul

So, this is not one of my most newer videos this past week but it is one of my more recent videos that I posted recently. I wanted to show you some of the natural products that I tend to get at target. Along with some new items that I found on sale with the weekly target deals that they have. I love shopping at target and you can find a ton of target store deals if you shop there enough and know where to look.

Each week, especially around this time of year right before and after each season ends they always have a ton of stuff on clearance shelves in just about every category. One of my favorite spots is when they drop the prices down super low in the beauty section. I was able to get a new product that I have never tried before like the S.W. Basics Rosewater Cleanser and their Apple Cider Vinegar facial toner.

These products work really well together and have done quite a number on my skin, which left me quite impressed. My husband likes the Olivella Daily Facial wipes which he uses to refresh his skin throughout the day at work. I love the Alba Botanica Hawaiian Detox Volcanic Clay wipes. I was able to get all these products on sale for a discounted price.

In fact, I even made a video to show some of the products I got. Now, mind you, not all the products are natural, just as my husband does not like all natural products all the time.

Tell me what sort of products do you love to get at target?

All Natural Deodorant

 

So you know its the summer months and the kids are all out of school and your running around trying to keep everything in order and the kids busy doing something. In order that you could have some down time for yourself toward the end of the night. Well that is exactly how I have been this past summer, running around like a chicken with my head cut off except for the fact that I sweat right along with it.

Now, I don't mean just sweat like some pretty little girl sweat, to put it nicely. ” When it rain's it Pours!”

Yes, I have the armpits that I think my father gave me.

Nah not that much.

But hey, it does feels that way sometimes.

So I was on the search for all natural deodorants that work! I am still in the search for the ultimate Natural Deodorant that will work miracles like their chemical laden fill counterparts 😉

However, I don't feel like I want to take the risk of Russian Roulette playing the game of getting cancer or allowing some other dangerous hormone inhibitor to seep into my skin pores that comes from using those sort of products. Especially when it so close to your breast area.

The top three that I have been playing around with lately have been:

 



Mill-Creek Cool Lavender Deodorant:  

  • Propylene Glycol Free
  • With Tea Tree Oil
  • No artificial Colors
  • Non-Irritating
  • No-Aluminum
  • All Natural and Organic Ingredients

 Jason Nourishing Apricot Pure Natural Deodorant Stick:

  • No Aluminum
  • Odor Protection
  • No paraben's, phthalates or propylene glycol
  • Uses corn starch and baking soda to neutralize odor

Zions Health Adama's Minerals Clay Dry Deodorant:

  • Long lasting protection
  • Original Scent
  • A unique formula of Clay Minerals and Essential Oils work effectively to neutralize odor and naturally absorb wetness
  • Free of aluminum, paraben, propylene glycol, artificial ingredients

 

I even made a video to really express how I feel!

 

 

P.S. So tell me do you use Natural Based Deodorants? I would love to know!

Welcome to the 2nd Annual Summer Celebration Giveaway Hop, hosted by Happy Mothering and The Vagabond Studio along with the Green Moms Network! We are excited to bring you eco-friendly prizes valued at $25+ to help you celebrate the start of Summer! After entering my giveaway, be sure to visit the other blogs listed under the Rafflecopter form for your chance to win more great giveaways.

The three R’s of environmentalism are reduce, reuse, and recycle. They are important for green families to know and consider in daily life as they often serve as the foundation for green goals and family ideals. All three of them should be considered whenever we take out the trash or buy new products for the home.

Reducing basically means eliminating things you don’t need which makes less garbage. When making purchases it is important to determine if the products you are buying are really necessary. Many times we tend to find that we buy many luxury items along side the necessities. There is nothing wrong with treating yourself occasionally but as a rule simplicity is better. If you do decide to buy, you can still reduce your landfill contribution by electing to buy products that will last for a long time or have another use later on.

Purchasing reusable items that need not be thrown away is another great way to avoid landfill waste, that's why since I am giving away  TheEco Lunch Box Three in one set!  The Eco Lunch box will help you do just that. It will help you to avoid toxic chemicals, reduce the waste, along with help you save money as a family by not continuing to buy sandwich bags which are harmful for the environment.

I choose to go get the premium option now while there is a discount for it, along with the fact that I will save a ton throughout the year on products that I buy month to month.  For instance this month I was able to save on laundry soap from Molly Suds! I ended up saving $3.15 off the actual price of the product.  I than ordered an all purpose cleaner from branch basics and saved over $6.00 off the price of the product!
