I have a green woolen top; how do I get dried blood stain out without using bleach?
By Sonya from Australia
Try household ammonia, blot it on with a cotton ball and rinse with cool water, several times.
Peroxide will absolutely work on the blood stain, however after all the washing you may find the sweater a little rough and not as comfy, in that case soak in a mild solution of hair conditioner, rinse and dry as label directs. I do this every so often with many natural and synthetic fiber sweaters, it allows me to re-shape and restore the softness.
Put in the freezer overnight, wash in cold water, then wash with Ivory bar soap (has to be bar).
I have not tried anything yet. I will buy peroxide on the weekend and try it thank you for your help.
Always start with cold water and use it first without soap to rinse as much blood out as you can. Then use your soap, dishwashing liquid or laundry detergent. Sometimes a little Crest toothpaste can help or cream rinse free shampoo.
