DIY Laundry Stain Bar

This is a super simple DIY cleaning idea for the laundry room – a DIY Laundry Stain Bar! This solution works best on simple clothing stains that are fresh and not set-in. I love this natural and non-toxic alternative to stain sticks and sprays, try it the next time you have a stain that needs some attention. My favorite way to use it is on kids’ clothes and dirty pants’ knees from playing in the dirt.

Grab your supplies – water, a bar of Castile or vegetable-based soap (you can find castile soap at Target, Wal-Mart, your natural food store, and Amazon), and scrub brush if necessary.

Use a knife or scissors to cut the top off the wrapper. This creates a little storage case for your bar and it will keep your hands from getting soap on them (not that that would be a bad thing).

You can store the bar in the wrapper when not in use and it will dry out completely in a couple minutes after using it. Push the bar up a bit out of the wrapper to use it.

Wet the top of the bar under running water or in a dish – I like to use a dish because it’s more controlled.

Rub into the stain and re-wet if necessary.

Scrub if necessary with a clean, soft bristled brush.

Launder as usual and admire your stain-removing abilities!
