**NEVER use peroxide on wool, silk or dry-clean only clothing. If you are worried about color fastness, test on a little spot inside the hem of the garment where it won't show.
Peroxide also works great on blood stains. I have a lot of pets and thorny bushes plus I'm a cluts, so blood stains are an everyday thing with me. Also, it's skeeter season. (08/12/2004)
I keep a spray bottle of peroxide in my laundry room. It's good for spraying on grass or blood stains, etc. Also, I have a light colored carpet and a quick spray of peroxide with a little dabbing makes the stain disappear. Test in an inconspicuous area first. (11/24/2004)
I have found that peroxide gets out that dreaded mud a person can't get out after it is dried in or washed. When my son comes in fron 4 wheeling I spray his clothes and wash when I have a full load. It still amazes me. Saves on clothes too! (11/25/2004)
Here is just a little caution. The reason that hydrogen peroxide always comes in a dark container is that light will cause it to undergo a chemical transformation that will turn it back into water. If you are putting a spray top on your bottle make sure it does not let light through. I also would not suggest putting hydrogen peroxide in one of those clear spray bottles. If you do, you may find that after a few days you are treating stains with good old H2O. (01/22/2005)
Peroxide works great on dog urine stains - it not only took out the stain, but the smell! It also restored the light blue grey color of the carpet! That was an added bonus as they desperately need to be replaced! I found pouring in on the stain worked much better than spraying, but our stains were awful due to a young pup and an elderly incontinent dog. (02/18/2006)
The dog peed on my son's mattress. I used store bought pet stain remover and it left the mattress with dark looking stains all over and it still smelled. I poured a small bottle of peroxide, and I used paper towels to wipe away the stains. The smell was gone also! (04/12/2008)
I had a really bad blood stain on a mattress. Soaked in bad! I put hydrogen peroxide on a rag, so as not to soak the mattress, and then put it on the stain. I repeated to all parts of the stain. Then scrubbed, wiped off, and rinsed the rag. I repeated till the blood was gone. When the hydrogen peroxide touched the blood it fizzed and turned white. I waited till it stopped before wiping off with the rag. For the most part it got all the blood. In the parts where the blood was thickest I could only get it off enough to where it was a light brown stain. Good enough and better than before. (09/03/2008)
