So skip the store and whip up a batch of this stain-fighting spray instead. You just need castile soap, vegetable glycerin, water and lemon essential oil. 

You will also need a glass spray bottle, which makes it easy to apply this recipe to stained items, you just have to spray it on.  This is a plus because if you are pressed for time and a stain happens, just grab the spray and spritz away!

Essential Oil Recipe Tips:

-When using essential oils for cleaning be sure to use only high quality, therapeutic essential oils. If you are looking for an excellent oil company without membership requirements, click here for one we just love.

-Lemon essential oil is an excellent choice for this laundry stain remover but you can try different essential oils in this recipe.

-If you have an old, set in stain, you can try lemon essential oil directly on the stain. Then immediately wash the item in the wash machine. If you pretreat and let the lemon oil sit there, it could discolor the fabric yellow. So, don't do that.  Only apply lemon oil directly on fabric if you are ready to wash the item immediately.

-Spray works best if the stain has not already been washed and dried. Once washed and dried the stain is usually pretty set into the fabric.
