The Ultimate Stain Remover

The ultimate stain remover that actually works on a seriously set in stain! Never buy oxyclean again!

The mixture is:
1 tsp. Dawn dishwashing detergent...
3-4 tablespoons of hydrogen peroxide
couple tablespoons of baking soda.
Scrub on with a scrubbing brush.

Works on every stain I've tried it on !!!

I saw this "recipe" on Julie Steinbrink's Facebook page.  
You might want to look her up. She has a lot of ideas.

For the past 30+ years I have cooked chicken in the clock pot almost every Sunday.  I'm excited to try this new recipe for chicken in the crockpot.   I traditionally put chicken legs in the crock pot in with a cup of salsa and a can of chicken broth.  I got this recipe from this link.
