Who likes cleaning?! Who likes reading about cleaning even more than cleaning?!
Oh ME! ME!
I found this recipe that is meant to get whites white again (as in ditch the gross yellow pit stains on white shirts) and decided to try it on my 9.5 year old, much loved and eaten on, formerly white couch. There is not a chance of a new couch in my future (nor would I really want one, our couch is heavenly comfortable), but it was getting rather shameful…
Pretty sure that is a healthy mix of feet, food and boogers. Want to come hang out at my house now? 🙂
I’ve tried bleach, oxy-clean, borax, very hot water and leaving them out in the sun to dry. Nothing seems to budge these stains.

Basically I use dawn, hydrogen peroxide and baking soda. Mix them together and apply using a scrub brush. The stains started lifting immediately. I let them sit for a few minutes and then threw them in the wash on hot, hung them to dry, and bingo. White.
White and wrinkly apparently, because I never iron. <insert “Ain’t nobody got time for dat!” here> Also, it’s hard to take a picture of just white, and it’s Ikea white, which always reads a touch dingy. But believe me, this stuff works.
