To remove the stains I used carpet cleaner and it really took every single stain away
That being said, knowing this I had to make a decision. Our baby had gotten a severe yeast rash infection. We went to the doctors who gave us an ointment with it's own side affects and risks. Nothing was helping, none of the diaper rash creams were working. She got so severe she was miserable.
After applying this, she actually started clearing up quickly. It caused her rash spots to turn dark purple and fade away. Again, know the risks of using the item. For us she was safe and healed up very nicely. Don't let it sit in skin folds very long as it can cause the skin to die supposedly, but we were careful and had no issues. I recommend it if you have a severe baby yeast infection and need to treat it. It did not hurt her and caused her no harm. I was glad to be able to treat her when her doctor couldn't figure it out or care much about her pain.
I have a black Labrador who has had non stop ear infections for her entire life. She has had many vet visits, cleaners and creams, allergy pills, as well as dietary changes with nothing seeming to help for very long and sometimes not at all. It always comes back. Well, now we have moved to a different state that is much more humid, more often than where will lived before and this has exacerbated the problem. In my effort to help her, I recently happened upon a Labrador website where someone posted the recipe for this Purple Ear wash and decided to give it a try,
So far, so good. I have been just using cotton balls soaked in the solution to clean out her ears instead of pouring the solution in her ears like the directions stated because I have done that before (with other things) and liquid seems to get trapped in her ears and takes months to disappear. Anyway... some parts of her ears are actually a healthy white color again... which I haven't seen in a long time. I don't expect miracles because she has had this problem for a decade. But I am very hopeful.
As a side note, I decided to use this on my long standing on again/off again intertrigo (Ladies with large Ta-Ta's know what I am talking about lol). It has worked better than anything I have ever tried! This combined with Baza Antifungal Cream is a one-two punch.
As for staining... I accidently left some of the solution in my marble sink overnight and had two big purple splotches that wouldn't wash off... I sprayed it with a bleach shower mold/mildew cleaner and let it sit for about 5 minutes and it came right off. I've also heard of people using plain rubbing alcohol and even hydrogen peroxide to remove purple stains, just depends on the surface that is stained. My point is although it does stain anything it touches, the stains usually can be removed. The better option is to be careful how you use it to eliminate/minimize staining in the first place. For example, if I ever do decide to pour the solution directly in her ear... this will definitely be done outside on our patio where she can shake her head and let it fly without fear of it staining the entire room LOL
