Com­bine 4 ta­ble­spoons of bak­ing soda and 1/4 cup of wa­ter. Dab on the stain un­til it’s gone, and then wash.

AM­MO­NIA

Di­lute house­hold am­mo­nia with an equal amount of wa­ter, and pour onto the stain. You don’t need to let it sit be­fore wash­ing; just toss it in.

HY­DRO­GEN PEROXIDE

Di­lute hy­dro­gen peroxide with an equal amount of wa­ter; ap­ply to the stain, and let sit for 30 min­utes be­fore wash­ing. Don’t use hy­dro­gen peroxide on col­ors, as it does have sim­i­lar prop­er­ties to bleach.
