  1. Turn all garments inside out
  2. Wet the stained areas with water
  3. Sprinkle wet stained areas liberally with baking soda
  4. Scrub the baking soda gently into the stained areas with the toothbrush
  5. Allow to dry for at least 12 hours
  6. Pour hydrogen peroxide on the stained areas up to 15 minutes before washing
