DIY Stain Remover

There I was, just about to enjoy some delicious looking sushi, when the soy sauce incident took place. I had the sushi set out before me and I opened a packet of soy sauce to add to each piece. As I was distributing the sauce, a rogue stream of the dark, brown liquid shot onto my cute green and white table cloth.

My first thought was that I had officially ruined the tablecloth. There had been things spilled on it before, but this looked like it was going to be the end of it. I love the tablecloth. It is such a cheery color and is the perfect size for my kitchen table.

Then I thought, Thieves! I took out my bottle of Thieves Cleaner and put a napkin under the tablecloth to absorb the liquid. Then, I sprayed some Thieves Cleaner on the soy sauce stain and dabbed it with another napkin. It started to come out. The stain got much lighter. I sprayed again and dabbed again. It got lighter still. This was amazing. I sprayed it for a third time and dabbed it again making sure to absorb all the liquid. I couldn’t believe it, but the soy sauce stain came out. Completely! It was like it was never there.

The next day I looked at the table cloth thinking that after it dried there might be a hint of the soy sauce. Nothing. I couldn’t even  tell where it might have been in the first place. I think that this stain remover is amazing. You need to make some for your house. I have heard it takes blood and red wine. I know that sounds like a mysterious combo, but two separate people told me about each.

Here’s how you make it:

Thieves Multi-Purpose Cleaner


  • 500 ml glass bottle with spray nozzle
  • 16 drops Thieves essential oil
  • hydrogen peroxide
  • water


Put 16 drops of Thieves essential oil in the bottle. Fill half of it with hydrogen peroxide and the other half with water.

That’s it! It can be used on anything from stains, counter tops, mirrors, sinks. I use it like I would Fantastic or Windex. It smells wonderful and does a great job. Just use it how you would any other cleaner.
