Hearing how valuable, yet expensive, Oxyclean is to keep your whites white and get rid of stains, I opted for cheaper alternatives. After doing some research, learning that the generic stuff has "fillers," I could make it myself! What!!!???
It's easy. The recipe is from Grocery Cart Challenge.
1/2 cup washing soda
1/2 cup hydrogen peroxide
I use this for all my whites on the hottest water temperature setting. I let soak for a few hours when used with my laundry soap.
Without the additional non-bleach whitener, your whites may become dingy. Washing soda is from the same family as baking soda, just a stronger formula as it is heated to a higher temperature during the "making."
