  1. Read the care label

    Read the care label to verify that the fabric can be cleaned with water. Do not use this method for fabrics that require dry cleaning.

  2. Mix the cleaning solution

    Set a bucket in a well-ventilated area. Put on rubber cleaning gloves, and pour equal parts oxygen bleach and ammonia into the bucket. Use 2 tablespoons of each chemical for each stained garment. Gently agitate the mixture with your fingers, and try not to breathe the fumes.

  3. Scrub the stains

    Spread a clean white towel on a flat surface, and lay the stained fabric on top. Dip an old toothbrush into the cleaning solution, and rub it into the stains. Scrub the stains for about 30 seconds, and leave the solution on the fabric for 10 minutes.

  4. Launder the fabric

    Put the fabric in a washing machine, and launder it according to the directions on the care label.
