For poultice, first, wet stain with water. Mix hydrogen peroxide and cornstarch into a paste the consistency of peanut butter. Apply paste about 1/4 inch thick on stain. Cover with plastic, such as a sandwich bag or food wrap. Poke a few holes in the plastic then tape down. Allow poultice paste to dry thoroughly, about 24 to 48 hours. Once dry, scrape residue away, rinse with clear water then buff dry with a soft cloth. Reapply poultice if necessary.
