I've been trying many different home recipies for my laundry stains, but to no avail NOTHING is working. I make my own detergent with Washing Soda, Borax, & Fels Naptha Soap. I REALLY like it for the wash. But for the stains on our families clothes I can't seem to find ANYTING natural that works! I have tried Peroxide, vinegar, washing soda, lemmon juice, and borax mixes. I've tried overnight soaking, 30 min pre-treats, making pastes to scrub before laundering and nothing is working, and I even use vinegar with 2-5 drops of Sweet Orange Essential oil in my rinse water.
I've done research on line and found that BKF, Bon Ami, and Oxi- Boost seem to be the most popular. But it appears that BKF is not 100% natural since it contains oxalic acid(don't know what that is, but researchers say its a chemical). Bon Ami only contains egg shells(all natural, but less abrasive).
So after looking online, both BKF and BA are available on Amazon.com for around $4(which includes shipping), but my local hardware store sells it for $1.99 ea. I will buy them both to see which works better.
I was hoping to get some advice if anyone has tried the Bon Ami vs. BKF for laundry stains, how harmful is the oxalic acid, if the BKF works better and I end up using it instead of the BA. Thanks!!
Nothing in my and I bring simply to the cross I cling.... Have a blessed day everyone!
