  • Mix the dish soap and the hydrogen peroxide until it is completely blended. 
  • Apply onto the stain and top with a sprinkle of baking soda. 
  • Scrub off the stain using a soft toothbrush. Let it sit for an hour or two. 
  • Wash the garment as you normally would but avoid using the dryer. 

RL Tips:

  • Ditch the bleach. Avoid using potent solutions as it could react with the bacteria in the stain and thin out the fabric. 
  • Did you know that the sun can have a natural bleaching effect? If you can, air dry your clothes outside to help get the stains out permanently. 
  • If you have the time, wash stained clothes immediately—especially workout garments as these are susceptible to staining quickly. Try not to let it sit for long for easy stain removal.
