Benzoyl peroxide is one of the most common causes for mystery discoloration. It is a common ingredient in many types of acne medication and is often mixed into lotions, creams, and soaps. Athlete’s foot medication also contains benzoyl peroxide.
Teenagers, in particular, will apply the medication to their faces and then not wash their hands, or not wash them well enough. Then, when they sit in front of the television and lean on their hands, the medication gets onto the fibers and causes discoloration. Sometimes you may see a handprint or even a footprint shape in the carpet.
The stain may not appear until the carpet or fabric is wet cleaned. This is a permanent form of color loss that cannot be removed. It will need to be spot dyed.
Warning: Always test materials for colorfastness, follow label directions, and never mix products unless specified in the label directions. Each situation reacts differently and results may vary.
