Peroxide #5 . . .

#5 Remove Stains from Fabric

Three-percent hydrogen peroxide can be used to remove tough spots and stains on clothing, including bloodstains. Pour on the spot, let sit for a minute, then rub and rinse with cold water. Note that peroxide is a bleach, so use carefully on colors—it might lift both the stain and color. To remove stains of unknown origin, Readers Digest recommends this sure-fire method: Mix 1 teaspoon hydrogen peroxide with a little cream of tartar or non-gel toothpaste, rub the mixture into the stain with a soft cloth until the stain in lifted, and then launder as usual.


  1. I did not know peroxide was a bleach. I used cream of tartar today for a craft with the grands. I need to learn more. Thanks for the tip!

  2. This one I knew, Thanks for sharing Marge. :) Hugs
