Make your own laundry pretreater / pre-treater for pennies : Make dreft laundry treater for almost free: We ran out of Dreft pre-treater for the laundry. With the little ones allergies, I did not want to use something else, so instead of paying x.xx dollars for another dreft spray bottle, I noticed the ingredients in the bulk Sam’s Club jug and the spray bottle were the same, maybe formulated differently, but read on…
So I took the old empty spray bottle, poured one cap full of dreft soap from the huge jug into the bottle, then slowly filled it with warm water and gently shook/rolled it around until it was decently mixed. I shake before every use to make sure its still mixed.
I gave it the ultimate test tonight… the boy has been sick and has had several “blow-outs” in his outfits from the daycare. We had about 5 days of such outfits in baggies in the laundry room. I sprayed the poopie spots with ‘fake’ dreft pre-treater, didn’t even bother to let it sit, just tossed it in the washer set on hot, medium wash cycle cottons and VOILA, they came out like new.
It worked just as well on the set in poopie stains as the expensive pre-treater.
In this case I used dreft, but you could use any soap…Tide…Era…whatever.
Let me know what you think.
