Stain Remover

I found this on the internet and will be trying this and wanted to share it here.

one part Dawn dishwashing liquid mixed with two parts HYDROGEN PEROXIDE

Pour directly on stain and use a scrubbrush or old toothbrush to work into stain. Works immediately.
The website states she tried this on a colored shirt with this recipe "1 tsp. Dawn dishwashing detergent, 3-4 tablespoons of hydrogen peroxide" and had success. She has pictures posted as well.
