Blood - Pre-soak in cold or warm water water at least 30 minutes. If stain remains, soak in lukewarm ammonia water (3 Tbs. per Gallon of water). Rinse. If stain remains, work in detergent and wash, using bleach safe for fabric.
Blood stains, if fresh, may be removed by washing in cold water. If hard and dry steep for a few hours in cold water, to which add a pinch of baking soda. Washing and bleaching will finish the process. Never put blood stains in hot water (11/14/2006)
Simple Green used as directed on label will remove just about any kind of stain from any material without damage. I have used it to completely remove old dried menstrual blood. It is one of the safest and most effective products I have ever used. When purchased by the gallon and diluting as appropriate for the task, it is very economical. (11/15/2006)
I've used perioxide on everything from undies to slips and shirts, it really works. But, they've all been white or off white. Don't know how it does on colors. (11/16/2006)
