Cleaning pro reveals Tide pens do nothing for blood stains – all you need is a common first aid kit product

TIDE stain remover pens are a handy, fan-favorited way to get rid of unwanted stains.

But when it comes to blood stains, there's a more effective way to erase those ugly marks from your clothes, sheets, or upholstery.

TikTok user @jeeves_ny shared the hack in a video, and all you need is hydrogen peroxide.

Responding to another TikTok of someone attempting to use a Tide pen to clean their blood-stained sheets, he said hydrogen peroxide is a cheaper and more effective option.

Holding up a large bottle of Hydrogen Peroxide 3 percent, he said: "This whole bottle costs three dollars, it's amazing for bloodstains, it's a great disinfectant, and it's a great way to keep your white clothes white."

Luckily, most people have a bottle of HP lying around their medicine cabinet, making it an easy hack to incorporate.

The TikTok cleaning guru said it even works on old stains too, so it's never too late to give it a try on that stubborn, years old mark.

As for other cleaning hacks, the TikToker shared a useful tip for getting rid of those yellow sweat stains that often show up on our white t-shirts.

These stains appear when we don't wash our clothes right after sweating in them – they oxidize and turn yellow.

To remove those distracting discolorations, he said to combine warm water and "your favorite oxygenating bleach like OxiClean," in a bucket. Soak the garment overnight, and then wash it in a normal washing machine cycle.

If it doesn't work the first time, the TikToker recommended "rinsing and repeating" a couple more times until it's out.
