    Place the fabric that has been stained with pigeon droppings in your washing machine. Soak the fabric in a mixture of washing powder with enzymes and warm water.

    Clean the fabric in the washing machine, remove it, then apply a few drops of ammonia and hydrogen peroxide to the stains with an eye dropper. This will help break down the pigeon dropping compounds.
