The proper way to fully remove a blood stain from fabrics.
Things You'll Need
- 3% Hydrogen peroxide
- Rust remover for fabrics
- Eye dropper
- White terry towel
- deionized water
Using the eye dropper apply the 3% hydrogen peroxide to the blood spot.
Using the terry towel blot-do not rub- the spot to abstract the blood from the fabric unto the towel-Note if using this procedure on a garment, place a terry towel under the spot area as well in order to prevent bleed through.
After having removed all the blood spot from the fabric- this will be evident when the blood no longer transfer from the affected area unto the spotting towel- if a dark stain (iron) remains now you must proceed to the next step.
Many times when removing blood spot from fabrics a dark stain will remain this is the iron that was in the blood and the hydrogen peroxide nor detergent will remove this stain. Rinse the now iron stain with the deionized water to neutralize any of the hydrogen peroxide that was left in the fabric. Apply the rust remover to the dark stain using an eye dropper - if you apply the rust remover using the same eye dropper in which you had the peroxide in be sure to rinse out with water before putting the rust remover in it- not doing so will make the rust remover useless because the rust remover is a reducer the peroxide is an oxidizer and if you put them both together one will cancel out the other.
Allow the rust remover to work for whatever time is printed on the label-follow the manufacturers directions- after the rust remover has removed all of the dark (iron) stain follow with a deionized water rinse and you are done
