Stain Solutions TIp: How to Remove Blood Stains

July 30, 2007 by kendah
shefinds |

Though most of us think the death of our fabric is blood, think again. Blood stains are easily the quickest stains to lift with these super easy solutions. But remember, don't wait; the sooner you attack a stain, the better. And of course, never just toss a soiled garment into the washer. You must remove the stain before laundering, otherwise, you'll never get the stain out.

When at Home

There are many things you probably already own that are perfect for removing blood stains. The simplest of products is in your freezer. Place an ice cube (or cubes, depending on the size) over the fresh blood stain and wait until the cubes melt. By the time they do, you can bet the blood will be gone. Wash immediately in cold water with your favorite detergent.

Another great tool is hydrogen peroxide, which is ideal on dried blood stains. Pour some into a bowl and sumberge the stained clothing into the bowl and let sit for 15 minutes. Rinse with cool water and the stain should be gone. Follow up by laundering the garment in cold water.

When on the Go

Sometimes we just simply don't have the luxury of a nearby washer and dryer. While blotting with club soda is a common remedy for removing stains in public (along with the less feminine spit and rub method), we're also fond of carrying a stain wipe in our purse as a discrete and effective alternative that really gets the job done with minimal effort.

You can try OxiClean Instant Spot Remover Wipes or Shout Wipes, Portable Stain Treater Towelettes. Both are color-safe, individually wrapped and easy to use when you're out and about. Our favorite part is that they won't leave you with a big wet stain on the front of your shirt like you get when dousing yourself with club soda. Both cost less than $3 each.
