What you will need for this stain removal is cold water, a bar of soap, and hydrogen peroxide. First off your going to soak the garment in cold water, it is very important that the water is cold because warm water will set the stain. Once the garment has soaked for about ten-fifteen minutes remove the garment from the cold water. If your garment is a dark color rub the stained area with a bar of soap if your garment is a lighter color use hydrogen peroxide and rub it into the stain. Then wash you’re your garment regularly.

Combine one cup of salt with two quarts of water and mix it until all of the salt is dissolved. Put the garment into the bowl or bucket you just made the salt solution in. Then let your garment sit in the mixture and soak for thirty minutes. After thirty minutes pull out the garment and wash normally.
Way 3:
Combine lemon juice and water with the ratio of 2:1 and mix it well. Take the solution you just make and pour it right onto the stained area and use your hands to softly massage the mixture into the stain. If this does not fully work the stain out of the clothing then apply baking soda and water with the ratio of 2:1 again to the stain and allow it to sit for thirty minutes then wash normally.
