I didn't read the post but I have used it to remove blood before.

Hydrogen Peroxide will remove blood stains. The sooner you apply it the better it works. The hydrogen peroxide and dawn soap formula that bd.weld posted above is terrific-- I use it to remove grass and dirt stains from my son's little league baseball pants. Works better than any store bought laundry stain remover. I keep it in a spray bottle in my laundry room.

I did use it on some white cotton items that had yellow stains (we have iron in the water). I brushed on the mixture and let it sit for 1 hour than washed. I'd say about 90% of the stains came out and the whites are whiter so I'd do it again.

I think it's great. 1 part Dawn to 2 parts hydrogen peroxide.

Beware: the posted mix "definitely" whitens whites. I used it to remove some yellowed spots on a white shirt and then had to use it again on the entire shirt because the yellow spots were so white they now stood out and made the rest of the shirt look yellowed.

Works great. I found a formula on pinterest. Basically 1 part each of peroxide and blue /original dawn. Pour on stain, then sprinkle baking soda as an abrasive and scrub in gently with a brush. Let sit for 5-30 min and launder. This got set in grimy collar stains and grease stains out of several garments with no dis coloring or fading. LOVE THIS.

This really does work on very dirty baseball pants, much better than any other pre-spotter I have ever tried. Also, used it to remove the underarm yellow stains from otherwise perfectly good undershirts.

Allie, you said you keep the mixture in a spray bottle in your laundryroom. Are you aware that the hydrogen peroxide breaks down in light and will become water? I'm not sure how soon it does this but everything I've read says you can't make this ahead and use it. That's why hydrogen peroxide is in brown bottles.

Maridele, thanks. I didn't know but makes sense. So far it's worked fine but it is in a very dark laundry room in the dingy basement of my 130 yr old house. maybe that's dark enough? I'll keep you posted.

Best on organic matter like blood or grass if it is a fresh stain. Otherwise not so great.
