What is the best way to remove a blood stain?

I've tried different things; nothing works.


Answer by  Amanda65 (1220)

Try using normal saline to clean off the blood if it's a fairly new stain. If it's really old try using hydrogen peroxide, then rinse it off and soak with a pre-soak.

Straight Hydrogen Peroxide usually does the trick. If the stain is old, it may take a few more applications. The blood will bubble up and then blot with damp cloth.

Assuming that the blood stain is on fabric, it should be pretty simple to remove the stain as long you have not washed and dried it in the dryer as the stain will set. Try alternating between pouring a bit of hydrogen peroxide on the stain and then washing with shampoo until it is gone.

The only thing I have used that really could get a blood stain out is hydrogen peroxide. Pour a generous amount onto the stain, and let it set there for at least 5 or 10 minutes. Always make sure to rinse the peroxide out with cold water, not hot. Hot water will make the stain set in.

Fels Naptha soap and cold water is the best way to remove a blood stain. Soak the stain in cold water and scrub using the soap.

Well blood stains can be very hard to remove. If it is on something is safe to bleach then you can try apply some hydrogen peroxide and scrubbing it out.

Cold water and soap. Soak blood stained object in cold water then rub with ordinary, everyday soap. Rinse and repeat. Blood stain should come off. Often putting the object under running cold water can remove the stain. Also normal cows milk can also remove blood stains. Just soak in the milk then rinse well with cold water.

If you have used hot water and stain is set. If not try cold water and dish soap and rub, you might need to do this again.
