Blood stains

Share : 

Once blood has dried and settled in the clothing it is harder to remove. In order not to speed up the blood coagulation it is important only to use cold water.

Fresh bloodstains can easily be removed by rinsing with cold water. Almost all fresh bloodstains will disappear this way.

Older stains are usually harder to remove and can cause permanent stains in clothing. There are several ways worth trying to remove bloodstains:

  • Saline. Mix some salt with cold water and soak the clothing for about half a day. Afterwards the clothing can be washed in the machine as usual.
  • Rub the stain with an ice cube .
  • Bloodstains can be removed with milk. Pour some milk over the stain and dab with a dry cloth. Soaking the clothing in milk and rinse with cold water afterwards will work too.
  • Ammonia. Mix a dash of ammonia with cold water and dab the stain. Then rinse with cold water and wash it in the machine as usual.
  • Glycerine can be used as well instead of ammonia. Use the same procedure as with ammonia.
  • Saliva on the stain, soak, and wash in the machine after rinsing with cold water.
  • Rub shampoo on the stain and rinse with cold water. Wash the clothing in the machine afterwards.
