Removing Blood from Fabric

Blood stains on clothes? Not to worry. Just pour a little hydrogen peroxide on a cloth and proceed to wipe off every drop of blood. Works every time! Now, where to put the body? LOL!

I've always used running cold water and a bar of deodorant soap. Get the stain wet and then rub soap on it and rub the stain with either another part of the clothing or a cotton cloth, like an old tee shirt. Keep it under running water while doing this. It usually works best while the stain is fairly fresh.

I have used hydrogen peroxide for many years to remove blood from fabric. It is very effective. But, it does not always work completely the first time. It may be necessary to re apply once or twice, a minute or two after the first application.

Peroxide is an excellent cleaner for any organic, people stains. Be certain the stain is never exposed to heat as this sets the stain. I've resorted to both peroxide and salt in cold water with good results. A final resource is a bar of organic laundry soap. Rub the stain with a moist bar until the stain is buried in suds. Do this on both sides. Repeat as necessary.

How do you remove blood stains from fabrics?

You have to wash it right away in cool water (Not Hot). Spray n wash will work if it is not too dried on, also peroxide. (06/21/2009)

Oddly enough what removes blood is saliva, the only catch is it has to be the Spit from the person who the blood belong to, this is great for quilters who keep pricking their fingers and leaving little dots of blood if it's a big spot it may take a lot is spit , this even works on minstrel blood.

Run cold water over it then pour some Hydrogen Peroxide on it I rinse and repeat a few times and then wash it in the washer with detergent and cold water. Hydrogen Peroxide will take out just about any protein based stain. (06/21/2009)

The best way I've found is to soak the item in cold milk overnight and then wash as normal. This idea came from my Grandma. No bio detergents in her time. (06/23/2009)

I use a product called Z'Out. I've had a bottle forever. I bought it at a uniform shop for nurses who need to get blood and vomit out of their uniforms.

In the U.S. it's called Shout. Look in your store for an enzyme-based cleanser. I find it better than peroxide. (06/24/2009)

How do you get dried blood out of clothes, especially sheets, pillowcases and men's khaki pants?

I have had good luck soaking the blood spot in milk. After soaking the item for a while rub the spot and soak longer if needed. You need to try to soak the item as soon as possible and not let the blood dry; you will have much better results at getting the blood spot out. (03/27/2009)

Ammonia also works very well. Just soak the stain until it disappears. If the stain is on a heavy fabric, you may want to scrub it a bit. Also, I had always learned you should use only cold water to remove blood. Recently, my sister-in-law mentioned that she uses hot water. I've discovered that if I've used soap and water and a blood stain is not quite removed, hot water gets it all out. (03/27/2009)

In the past, on a stubborn blood stain, I put the part that has the stain on it over the drain opening and run the cold water till it's wet with a little puddle. Then I take table salt and pour a good layer over the stained area. Let the water drip just enough to slowly melt the salt and keep it wet. I just put it in the bath sink and I forget about it for a number of hours. Just check now and then to make sure that it is still puddled with water and the salt is still there.

When it's been a number of hours, you take it out and scrub the material together to get as much out, then soak in a bucket of cold water with BIZ Stain, detergent cleaner. BIZ is really great. Soaking in a bucket may take a few days, but I check it like 2x a day and rub the material together to check. Eventually it comes out. (03/28/2009)

My granddaughter turned me on to this trick and it even works on other stains and clothing that has one through the dryer. It takes some elbow grease, cold water and bar hand soap. Wet the stain and scrub it with the bar soap until the stain is gone. It really works. (03/28/2009)

A nurse I know uses Zout stain remover and cold water wash. (03/29/2009)

I have always used 409 Formula sprayed onto the blood stain straight from the bottle without diluting. Try scrubbing the fabric together by hand and it should start coming out. If not spray more onto the stain and let it set for awhile, maybe half an hour and try again. It always worked for me even after being dried into the material for a week or more (depending on when I could get to the laundry mat). (04/01/2009)
