The Best Natural Stain Remover

I found the holy grail!

The ultimate product for everyone…particularly mothers and clumsy individuals.

I was given some Puracy products to review – I’ve heard about them through my “crunchy” friends, as Puracy is a natural, plant-based company for environmentally safe home products.

I didn’t expect to fall in love with the stain remover, because let’s be honest, I had given up on removing stains. I’ve ruined so many white clothes, I’ve stopped wearing the color altogether. Baby blowouts? I just threw the onesies away.

When I saw the claims about Puracy’s stain remover, I laughed in disbelief and figured I could have some fun with seeing if the praise was worth it.

I took a white shirt I never wore, covered it in various fridge items. It was really fun. I followed the directions, sprayed the remover, and threw it in the wash.

It came out like this:

All the stains came out except for the lipstick. Go figure, right? I had really wiped a lot of lipstick on the shirt and I didn’t exactly follow the directions because tough stains, you are supposed to scrub and let sit overnight.

I listened to the directions and tried again, hoping I didn’t ruin my last white shirt. I also took my father-in-law’s white shirt…the shirt that’s filled with little food stains from months ago. I wanted to test the limits of the stain remover.

I soaked both shirts overnight, washed, and dried them. My mother-in-law and I were practically screaming when we saw the pristine white shirts. Both shirts! This must be a trick right? Or I took photos of the other side of the shirt and am lying?

I am not lying. I called my mom and sister-in-law to share the amazing news and I’m just ecstatic to finally be able to wear white again. I’ll sing the praises of the Puracy stain remover until the day I die. And I promise, I’m not just saying all of this because they gave me the products to review, this is my honest opinion and I’d never endorse a product I would buy for myself or suggest to my family.

And if you have any personal stain remover suggestions, let me know. I was thinking about doing a stain remover showdown!

What’s In My Make-Up Bag?

Makeup never used to be something I used in my daily life because I didn’t see the point. For one, the women around me seemed to only use makeup to hide behind a face they were self-conscious about and I didn’t want to become one of those women. I also never wanted to put in the time and effort to get my face ready for the day.

Today, I’m still mostly makeup free but as I continue in my writing career, I want to present my best self. I’m confident in my natural state, but enjoy throwing on a little something here and there.

The following are all the products that I own, some I use on special occasions and some I use religiously.
