Hydrogen peroxide isn't just for first aid purposes; it's also a crazy good stain remover! It is commonly used as a stain remover, similar to bleach, to take out color and sanitize surfaces.  It can whiten and disinfect with a milder chemical structure than bleach. It can remove virtually any stain from any fabric in minutes when mixed with another common household staple: dish liquid.

 Hydrogen peroxide’s chemical formation is two atoms of hydrogen and two atoms of oxygen  (basically water with an extra oxygen atom) which breaks down into water and is therefore a kinder alternative for the environment.

The basic laundry stain recipe is a mixture of dish liquid soap and hydrogen peroxide.  You use these two ingredients in a ratio of 1 part liquid soap to 2 parts peroxide. 
Step 1: Make the stain remover.
Step 2: Gently blot the stain with a clean cloth. Do not rub the stain or it could spread.
Step 3: Pour the stain remover onto the stain. Work the solution into the stain using your fingers if needed. Let sit for 10 minutes.
Step 4: Wash according to care instructions. After 10 minutes, the stain will mostly be gone. If there is still any showing, it should disappear in the wash.
