DIY Oxi Laundry Spray

March 8, 2023

I used to use OxiClean Laundry Stain Remover Spray, which is a great product, but it is a bit pricey, and I wasn't thrilled with the chemicals it contained. So, I decided to make something natural that would still work well on laundry.

I searched the internet and tried a couple of recipes, but they called for baking soda (or washing soda) and every time I tried to use the spray the baking soda would clog the tube and nozzle of my spray bottle. Very frustrating!

I searched the internet again for a DIY laundry spray recipe that didn't include baking soda but had the hardest time finding a recipe. So, I decided to use my noggin and come up with my own laundry spray recipe, and what I came up with works pretty darn good. Below is the recipe, and I've included a link for a downloadable and printable PDF version.


DIY Oxi Laundry Spray

DIY Oxi Laundry Spray
1/4 cup 3% hydrogen peroxide
1/4 cup vodka or rubbing alcohol
1/4 cup white vinegar
1/4 cup water
2 Tbsp lemon juice
1/4 tsp lemon essential oil

  • Combine all of the ingredients in an amber-colored glass spray bottle (or other dark bottle as light will cause hydrogen peroxide to decompose).
  • Spray on clothes, as needed, to spot-treat stains before laundering.

Depending on where you live, the summer months are just around the corner.
