Awesome SPOT cleaner!

Get 6 Bottles of Hydrogen Peroxide and Two First Aid Kits FREE at ...
As you well know, I am a big fan of making your own cleaners, especially specialty ones like Home Made Carpet Cleaner (see here) or Home Made Dishwasher Detergent (see here).
Dawn Dish Soap Only $0.47! Print Coupons Now!
Not only are they extremely cost effective to make, but they usually work a lot better than the fancy brands out there and are a whole lot safer to use around kids and pets.  Add cheap and effective and safe together and PRESTO!  You have one happy Practical Pioneer!  :)

This is one of the very easiest recipes I've seen for spot cleaning.  Always check fabric and surfaces for colorfastness.


  • Dawn Detergent (the original, blue kind)
  • Hydrogen Peroxide


  • Simply mix one part Dawn with two parts Hydrogen Peroxide in a dark bottle and shake well to mix.
  • Dab a little onto spots, leave on for a minute or two and gently rub up with a damp cloth.

Note:  Make sure you store in a dark bottle as light will degrade Hydrogen Peroxide.  And make sure that you clearly label what's in the bottle.  I use an old Hydrogen Peroxide bottle and a little spray nozzle that happens to fit.  But just the regular lid is fine as you usually just dab a little on to a small area anyway.s Hydrogen Peroxide.

Easy peasy lemon squeezy!  :)
