😝😏😧 You had a red wine disaster all over your new white pants, but have realized your fabric stain remover is M.I.A. Frantically you could soak your garment in cold water and a little club soda to lift the stain, but you still see pinkish/red wine splattered all over your favorite pants. Don’t panic yet, if you have a little hydrogen peroxide on hand and washing soda you can lift that stain like a pro.

Ingredients

  • hydrogen peroxide - enough to cover the stain
  • Washing soda or baking soda
  • Distilled water

Method 2 of 2:
For Stubborn Stains

This is when you need to get extremely aggressive with the stain or are dealing with a stain that has set for some time.

  1. 1
    Combine 1 part washing soda with 3 parts hydrogen peroxide in a spray bottle.
  2. 2
    Gently shake bottle until well combined. Don’t overdo it as it could foam and explode.
  3. 3
    Spray directly on stain and allow solution to set for several minutes. Use a small scrub brush to fully integrate the solution into the stain.
  4. 4
    Rinse and repeat if necessary.
