It would depend on the stain - and more specifically the material and staining agent. Saliva contains blood clotting agents so I doubt it would help with removing blood stains. The enzymes in saliva are unlikely to help with the stain removal. The water in saliva would be more likely to help, dissolving the stain. So your probably better off with water.


In my experience, reuse of NADPH stock solutions maintained at pH 7.0 or above is perfectly acceptable. Taking an absorbance spectrum every half-hour or so will probably show that definitively. However, NADPH is VERY unstable in acid, leading to a 'bleaching' of the absorbance at 340nm. Try measuring a rate at pH 6 or below, 340nm, with 100 micromolar ...
