DIY Bleach Pen For $.25

A long time back then in our first house, we tore up the vinyl flooring and replaced it with some tile. I chose a being tile with white grout and it looked good for the first couple of months. Following two of three months of baby food, dog drool, and many activities made the white grout become a soiled dark.

I was so tragic. I tried a toothbrush and soap to clean the tile yet nothing would take it back to its new white. I, at last, seen a Clorox bleach pen in the stores and spontaneously chose to give it a shot the tile. It worked incredibly! At regular intervals or so I would get 2 fade pens and go through an early evening time cleaning the tile.

I had everything worked out until we purchased our home we live in now. Not exclusively was my present house dispossession (think sickening, recolored grout) but it also had tile in such a large number of rooms. I would have needed to purchase $30-$40 in dye pens just to get it cleaned. Fortunately, I went over a formula on the most proficient method to make your own homemade bleach pen. I got some ready and I am stunned at how well it functions.

Regardless of whether you use a bleach pen on your clothes or around the house, the custom made fade pen will save your cash. It cost me under $.25 to make versus $3 in the store. It just takes a couple of moments to make as well!


  • 3/4 cup water
  • 3 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 3 tablespoons bleach


  1. In a small saucepan, combine 3/4 cup of water and 3 tablespoons of cornstarch.
  2. Cook the mixture over low heat until it starts to boil and thickens to a sauce-like consistency.
  3. Remove the saucepan from heat and allow the mixture to cool completely.
  4. Once cooled, add 3 tablespoons of liquid bleach to the cornstarch mixture and stir well to combine.
  5. Transfer the bleach gel to a container of your choice for storage. Squeeze bottles or recycled ketchup/salad dressing bottles work well.
  6. To use, apply the homemade bleach gel directly to stains on clothing or grout/caulk.
  7. Let the gel sit on the stain for one minute for clothing and three minutes for grout/caulk.
  8. Remove the gel with a paper towel and immediately wash clothing. For grout/caulk, wipe away the gel with a damp cloth.

By making your own homemade bleach pen, you can save money and effectively tackle tough stains around the house. Enjoy the simplicity and effectiveness of this DIY cleaning solution!
