How to Remove Dry Blood Stains

Save

Menstrual cycles, nosebleeds and accidents make blood stains a prevalent issue anywhere, anytime. Blood stains are commonly known as difficult stains to remove from fabric. Although difficult, they are not impossible. With just a few common household items, you can remove blood stains efficiently and expediently. If possible, it is best to get to the stain as soon as possible.

Things You'll Need

  • 1 tbsp meat tenderizer
  • Presoak the garment in cold water for 2 hours. The blood dissolves easily in cold water.

  • Wash the garment in a cold wash cycle with mild detergent. Do not dry. Heat of any sort can cause the blood stain to cook and possibly make it irremovable.

  • Check to see if the stain came out. If it did not, then create a paste to remove the stain.

  • Mix 1 tbsp of meat tenderizer and 2 tsp of cold water. Mix them until a paste is formed.

  • Spread the paste onto the garment with your fingers. Let the paste sit for 1 hour.

  • Launder the garment in cold water. If the stain is not fully removed, then repeat the process.
