Rubbing alcohol is the best agent for betadine stain removal. Most households have rubbing alcohol on hand. If you do not, then it can be purchased for just a few dollars from nearly any local drug store or grocery store. Isopropyl rubbing alcohol is meant to clean cuts and scrapes the same as betadine, but it can break apart betadine stains. If you do not have rubbing alcohol on hand, then peroxide can be used as a great substitute. Three percent hydrogen peroxide is perfect for drawing out a betadine stain, but is diluted enough not to permanently damage any clothing. If you have ammonia in your home, that can be used for betadine stain removal as well, particularly a non-sudsing ammonia.
Before you begin the process of removing betadine stains you need to pre-treat your clothing. Should the chemical get on your clothing and begin to stain, it is important that you begin flushing the affected area with cold water. Stay away from hot water in this case because hot water will permanently set in the stain, making betadine stain removal impossible. If your clothing is stained and you are unable to flush the stain, then blot it with a paper towel in order to absorb as much as possible. It is important that you do not rub the area because this can cause the stain to set and then spread to other areas of your clothing. If your clothes are dry-clean only, then the items should be taken directly to your cleaners to remove betadine stains.
