I ruined a nice dress once trying to get an ink stain out, I was amazed when I poured peroxide on it came right out.

Will it work on fiberglass tubs? Signed, desperate.

I have mystery stains on some of my cotton t-shirts. Probably grease stains or maybe coffee. Does the HP work on these type of stains if they are already set in? Also the shirts are dark colors will it fade in the spots?

Does it discolor fabric the way that bleach does? I'm afraid to use diluted bleach because it may spray onto my clothes and ruin them. If peroxide won't do that, I think that I'll make it my cleaner of choice.

I keep a spray bottle under the kitchen sink, to sanitize the counters. The other day I was putting away the drainer, for drying dishes - decided to give it a spray - OMG! If foamed up all over - YUK! So, I let it sit there a while, then w/ the hottest water, scrubbed it clean and gave it another spritz! There are so many things that carry germs, huh?

If you put hydrogen peroxide in a spray bottle, make sure the bottle is opaque. It is light sensitive and loses much of its power to disinfect upon prolonged exposure to light.

I keep a spray bottle of it to remove stains before laundry, as well as cleaning. I wish I had known how versatile it is when my children were little.

Hydrogen Peroxide works well for cleaning cuts, so it should be no surprise that it is effective for blood stains. It can have a bleaching effect so you will want to pretest it before applying it to a fabric stain. Keep a spray bottle of peroxide handy to tackle tough blood stains, even dried ones.
For blood stains on carpet, pour peroxide directly on the stain and blot with clean cloth. Pretest this solution on a remnant. Hydrogen peroxide can be purchased in the first aid section of your local drug store or grocery store. Always keep a bottle on hand.
