DIY Laundry Stain Remover

Servings 1 /4 cup


  • 1/4 c. Dr. Bronner's Liquid Castile Soap {any kind}
  • 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • 30 drops Young Living lemon essential oil


  • Mix all ingredients together in a glass bowl. Pour into a glass, essential oil safe spray bottle {use a funnel if necessary}. Increase or decrease the amount of ingredients based on the size of spray bottle you have {but keep the ratios}.
  • Before using, shake the bottle vigorously then spritz liberally over the stain. Allow to rest for no more than 5 minutes then immediately toss into the wash.


If your clothes have super greasy stains {like those caused by oil}, first start by sprinkling on some cornstarch over the stain {the fresher the stain the better} and let it sit for about 10 minutes. This absorbs the excess oil. Then shake it {mostly} off and apply the stain remover spray.
