Cleaning carpet stains with hydrogen peroxide

Cleaning carpet stains with hydrogen peroxide is simple.


HOW TO USE HYDROGEN PEROXIDE:

Use 3% hydrogen peroxide on stains. Spray or pour peroxide onto the stain. Let it sit, then remove with a sponge or cloth. (Put clean cloth over the area and apply pressure, to pick up the liquid.)

If any of the stain remains, repeat the treatment.


CAUTION!
  • In theory, hydrogen peroxide could bleach some of the color from the carpet, depending on the kind of dye. This is unlikely with 3% peroxide. I have poured 3% hydrogen peroxide on carpets in my home and have not had any problems. However, you can test on a small hidden area to be sure.
