My Cup's stain remover is made from a single ingredient, sodium percarbonate, which is derived from combining washing soda and hydrogen peroxide.
1 - Rinse your cloth pads in cold water and remove as much blood as possible.
2 - Soak your pads in 2 litres of cold water for 30 minutes.
Note: Blood is a protein that will fix into the fabric if you use hot water. Cold water is always needed when washing blood stains.
3 - Use a solid laundry soap bar and work soap into the layers of the fabric.
4 - Pop the cloth pads back into the cold water to soak for another 30 minutes.
5 - Rinse the cloth pads and tip out the cold water.
6 - Refill your bucket/sink with warm water and add 2 tablespoons of My Cup's Stain Remover. Agitate the water to dissolve the stain remover.
7 - Add your cloth pads to the warm water and leave to soak for another 30 minutes.
8 - Wash your cloth pads on a usual washing machine cycle with your other clothes/towels.
9 - Hang to dry in direct sunlight.
Note: Sunlight is the best way to naturally kill bacteria and remove stains.
