What You Need
2 oz Water
1 tbsp Grain alcohol (190 proof)
1 tbsp Dish soap
40 drops Lemon essential oil

When a spill occurs, it’s best to work fast. Dab or vacuum away (don’t rub) any excess stain-causing substance. Then spray the affected area thoroughly. Stained, machine-washable clothing can and should be washed after being sprayed. A cold water setting is preferred for most stains.Note that if the stain remains in the fabric after 8 hours, spray again. Resist the urge to rub stains in.
