  • 2 teaspoons olive oil

You’ll have to keep shaking this mixture as you use it to keep the oil and water mixed together, which really isn’t a big deal.  You already have the bottle in your hand to spray it, just give it a shake too!

Mix everything together and pour into a spray bottle.

Before you go to use it…if it’s been sitting for awhile, shake it up.  To use: spray on stains as you normally would.    Then launder as usual.
