How to Get Blood out of a Duvet

Save

Duvets are bedspreads that traditionally have a washable removable cover. A duvet also can be the cover itself, purchased separately from the quilt. Duvets can add a new color palette to a room or make an inexpensive bedspread look stylish. Duvets can also be quite expensive; some of the higher-quality duvets can cost hundreds of dollars. Hard-to-clean stains, including blood stains, can be removed from your duvet at home, potentially saving you a large amount of money on replacement or professional cleaning.

Things You'll Need

  • Sink
  • Stopper
  • Cold water
  • Hydrogen peroxide
  • Medicine dropper
  • Washing machine
  • Laundry soap
  • Color-safe bleach
  • Fill a sink half full with cold water.

  • Soak the affected area of the duvet in the water for several minutes.

  • Drain the water and apply hydrogen peroxide directly to the blood stain with a medicine dropper.

  • Place the duvet into the washing machine on the "cold" setting with laundry soap.

  • Rewash the duvet with color-safe bleach on a "cold" setting if the stain has not come out.

Tips & Warnings

  • Remove dried blood by rubbing the affected area with a toothbrush before soaking the duvet in cold water.
