  1. As soon as you notice the bleach stain, immediately blot it with water and paper towel. Be careful not to scrub or rub the bleach, as this could worsen the stain.
  2. Mix ¼ tsp of mild dish soap with 1 cup of warm water.
  3. Pour the solution over the bleach stain and let sit for about 5 minutes.
  4. Once the stain has dried, rub it with a cloth or sponge, working from the outside in so you don’t spread the stain.
  5. Rinse with cold water and dry.

If you react fast enough you might be able to get the entire stain out.
