    Apparently this is THE best stain remover ever. Even for old stains. Every mom needs this recipe - 2 parts hydrogen peroxide, 1/2 part baking soda and 1 part dish detergent

    Remove urine stains (from potty training or pets) from a mattress, upholstered furniture, carpet, etc. Pour 8 oz. hydrogen peroxide into a measuring cup, add 3T baking soda and stir till dissolved. Pour into a spray bottle, add a drop or two of dishwashing soap (Dawn, Palmolive, etc). Shake it up then spray it on the stained area. When it dries, the stain should be gone. (Test in an inconspicuous place first to be sure the solution doesnt remove the color from the fabric.)
