HOW TO FIX COLOR BLEED STAINED CLOTHES USING LEMON

HYDROGEN PEROXIDE + LEMON

Hydrogen peroxide mixed with water can help you get most of the colour-bleed stain from your favourite clothes. All you have to do is, in a tub pour one part water and 1 part hydrogen peroxide. Add in 1/4 cup lemon juice and stir it well and soak your colour bleed stained cloth. Let it soak for more 30 minutes and then wash it using a detergent. If the stain is intense, you may have to again soak the cloth for 30 minutes and repeat the procedure until the entire cloth comes out clean.

LEMON JUICE

Lemons are known for their beaching properties but you certainly need to have patience and put more efforts especially when you are using natural ingredients/remedies. You need a lot of lemon juice for this so I would suggest you go for commercially available lemon juice since you don’t have to consume its preservatives so it won’t be a problem. Mix 2 parts lemon with 1 ½ part water and soak your clothes in it for 30 minutes. Squeeze out the water and keep the wet cloth in direct sunlight for 1 hour.  Wash the cloth as usual and repeat if it is still stained.

Note: If the stains are minimal and in smaller sections, you can spot treat it this way maybe with saturated lemon juice.

LEMON JUICE+ BAKING SODA

Make a paste using baking soda and lemon juice and generously apply it on the colour bleed stain (if the stains are in smaller sections). Keep the cloth in direct sunlight until the baking soda dries and scrub it away. Repeat as needed.
