Hydrogen Peroxide removes blood on your mommy pads Thanks to Amanda Collins for this Frugal Baby Tip!

Blood on your clothes or mommy pads - Hydrogen Peroxide. I pour some on my clothes in the sink. Just enough to soak. I go back and refresh the H2O2 on the clothes.

When the blood has run out, I run cold water on them. I have yet to have a stain, and I started using cloth menstrual pads. It is so nice to keep them stain free. The sooner the better. This doesn't work as well once dry.

But it does get it out, it just takes more peroxide. If dry, start by getting it wet with cold water. And proceed the same way.

This tip reduces stains that are biological...

  1. I've switched to using a product called "INSTEAD" instead of pads and tampons. They are a cup that insert inside. They last for 12 hours, so you significantly fewer of them than you would pads or tampons. So you save money. And, they don't leak, so no stains to wash out. Wonderful!
