1) 1 tablespoon Green Works dish soap
2) 2 tablespoons Hydrogen peroxide
3) 2 tablespoons baking soda
4) Custard cup (or other small dish)
*Note: This recipe is for a small amount of solution, it was enough for me to spot clean the major stains on my daughter's clothes. Because the hydrogen peroxide looses effectiveness with light you don't want to make too much solution at one time. If you need more then just do one part dish soap to two parts hydrogen peroxide and adjust the baking soda accordingly to keep the solution the consistency of a thin paste.
Step 1: Put the baking soda into your dish first (I found this made mixing the solution easier).
Step 2: Put in the dish soap and hydrogen peroxide (try to do this in a dimly lit room so you don't disrupt the effectiveness of the peroxide.
Step 3: Mix all three ingredients together. You should get a thin paste that stays on the toothbrush with some slight run off. It shouldn't be a complete paste, kind of the consistency of watered down toothpaste.
Step 4: Rub the solution directly into the stain with the toothbrush. You want to really work the solution into the stain.

Step 5: Wash all of the clothes as usual.
*Tip: If the stain is set in then rub the solution into the stain, let sit for five minutes, rinse thoroughly then rub solution in again and let sit for 30 minutes to an hour, then wash as usual. This is usually enough to remove the stain, if the stain has been on the garment for a long period of time, let solution sit on stain for at least an hour then wash, then repeat the entire process again.
