Hydrogen peroxide can be used in many ways to remove stains. Whether it will be applied alone or in a mixture with other ingredient, hydrogen peroxide will help you to get rid of even the toughest stains. It is a cheap alternative to most commercial stain removers and once you try it, you are most likely to try it again. Here are a few of the stains that you can remove with hydrogen peroxide.
Blood Stains
Simply pour hydrogen peroxide over the blood stain and then blot dry with a white cloth. Repeat until the stain is gone. You can also use a paste made of cornstarch, hydrogen peroxide and cold water. Spread the paste over the blood stain and let it sit for some time before rinsing the area with cold water. Use a toothbrush to scrub the area and help the stain get out of the fabric, as suggested by cleaners East Sheen.
Wine and Juice Stains
Hydrogen peroxide works great in removing wine and juice stains from all kind of surfaces, no matter whether it will be carpeting, clothing or other furniture. Simply saturate the stained area with hydrogen peroxide and then blot up the stain. Be careful not to spread the stain while cleaning!
Pet Stains on Hardwood Floors
Pour hydrogen peroxide on the stain and let it sit for awhile before wiping the stain off. You may need to repeat the process several times before the stain is complete gone.
Counter Stains
To remove counter stains, you can pour hydrogen peroxide directly over the stain, or use a paste (cornstarch, hydrogen peroxide and cold water). No matter which method you would prefer, cleaners East Sheen recommend testing it on a hidden area first, as hydrogen peroxide may stains some fabrics.
To make an all-purpose stain remover, just mix ½ cup of hydrogen peroxide and 3 cups of water in a spray bottle. Use the stain remover whenever a stain occurs in your kitchen or other areas of your home, and during the rest time, store it in a place out of reach of children.
