Pre-Wash Laundry Spray

Make your own Pre-Wash Laundry Spray to pre-treat stubborn stains and save your favorite clothes from ruin! This tried and true recipe has been around for years and many old-timers swear by it.

In order to make your own pre treat spray, simply Combine the following in a Plastic Spray Bottle

  • 1/2 cup household ammonia
  • 1/4 cup baking soda
  • 1/2 cup white vinegar
  • 1/2 gallon water

To Use: Shake well and then Spray liberally onto clothes as needed. Keep this mixture away from your face as you fill the bottle.

Be sure to shake well prior to every use as the baking soda settles.

Reminder: While it IS generally considered okay to combine Ammonia and Vinegar,it is NEVER EVER Safe to combine Bleach and Ammonia OR Bleach and Vinegar. This combination creates a toxic gas that Can and WILL KILL.
