While working with tools or knives, it is relatively easy to cut or injure yourself, causing yourself to bleed. While cleaning up your injury, you may drip blood on the floor. However, you may not notice the blood on the floor until it has already dried. If you do end up dripping blood onto such material as vinyl, you do not have to panic. There are a couple of easy ways to remove the stains.
Things You'll Need
- Blood remover
- Soft brush
Take a rag and dip it into water with mild soap. Wash the vinyl floor with the soapy water. The rag may not clean off the blood entirely. Smaller blood stains may clean off easily, while thicker, larger spills may require more effort to remove.
Shake the blood remover product thoroughly. You can find a product to remove blood in the cleaning department of most local grocery stores.
Pour a small amount of the blood remover on an area of the vinyl flooring that is not easy to see. Make sure it does not effect the actual color of the vinyl flooring before using the blood remover product.
Pour the blood remover over the dried blood stain and allow it to sit for a few minutes.
Scrub the stained vinyl floor with a soft brush.
Wash the treated area with a damp rag to clean off the floor.
