Save money removing stains on fabric with this powerful thrift friendly homemade solution. Do not use this on any piece of fabric that cannot tolerate bleach. 

Mix 1/4 cup of bleach and 1/2 cup of dishwasher soap into about a gallon of water.  Immerse your soiled item into the water, and let it soak for half an hour.  After soaking, run the item through the washer and dryer.
