"Humankind has not woven the web of life. We are but one thread within it. Whatever we do to the web, we do to ourselves. All things are bound together. All things connect.”

Homemade Stain Remover for clothes
Here is a recipe for a homemade version of “Oxy-Clean”. Always pre-test all stain remover solutions on an inconspicuous part of the garment for color-fastness. This recipe is to be made as you need it because it will lose strength over time.
1 cup hot water
1/2 cup hydrogen peroxide
1/2 cup baking soda
Mix together the ingredients in a large bowl or sink, add clothes and soak for 20 minutes or overnight. Rinse and then wash as usual.
