When they were younger, my children would always be the messiest kids in the street. Not because I didn’t take pride in the way they looked or that I didn’t pay attention to their hygiene habits but because I really feel that letting children get messy encourages everything from creativity to confidence.
The problem with mess though, is that it comes hand in hand with stains and no matter how much I wanted to encourage the kids to explore and create, I didn’t want them to be ruining clothes on a regular basis. Rather than stop them from doing what kids do best, I just became a master at all things stain removal.
I learned that a few key household products could help me get rid of most stains and ultimately make the kid’s clothes last longer. They also helped me around the house when the inevitable mess spread from the kids into the surrounding areas. 😉
Today, I’m going to share this ultimate stain removal guide with you and I’m pretty sure that you’re going to come back to it again and again as your kids get older.

Just so you know, Hydrogen Peroxide is available from lots of chemists and opticians – as well as being used as a medical antiseptic and a disinfectant around the house, it’s also used for contact lens solutions and is renowned for its stain removal properties. You can also get it from Amazon if you prefer. 😉
Oh, and if you think the battle against stains end when your children get to their teen years then you’re completely wrong. Master Frugal is worse now that he’s ever been as he gets so muddy playing football in all weathers and Miss Frugal is almost as bad with makeup marks on things.
Add to that two dogs – one of whom can’t be outside enough and I’m still using my stain removal skills on a frequent basis!
