Any tips for getting Iodine out?


I was pouring betadine into a container yesterday and got some on my scrub top. Is there any way of getting it out? I'm afraid I might've just ruined a favorite top!:uhoh3:

Hydrogen Peroxide works like a charm!!! Apply to the spot and let it sit for a while and the stain will disappear (like magic). Good luck!

Works great for blood and other body fluids too...we even keep peroxide in our staff BR for just that sort of incident.

Hmm, good to know! We use that for our floors when there's blood/bodily fluids on it; hadn't thought of using it on clothes. Thanks!
