Removing blood spots from fabric, such as a pillow case, requires a period of soaking to allow the particles to break down. Once the blood has disintegrated, the removal process can begin. Trying to launder the fabric before the blood has a chance to dissolve, may require several attempts of washing before the stain lifts. With the proper techniques, you can rid your pillow case of a blood spot.
Things You'll Need
1 tsp. dish-washing detergent
1 tsp. heavy-duty laundry detergent
1 tsp. baking soda
Run cold water over the blood stain on the pillow case. Rub the stain gently with the tips of your fingers to help loosen the blood.
Fill a bucket with cold water and 1 tsp. dish-washing detergent. Place the blood-stained pillow case into the water and allow it to soak overnight.
Remove the pillow case from the bucket and rinse the stain with cold water. Spray a stain remover over the remaining blood.
Launder the pillow case in cold water and 1 tsp. heavy-duty laundry detergent. Inspect the stain after washing. If the stain remains, mix 1 tsp. baking soda with 2 tsp. water to make a paste.
Apply the paste to the remaining stain, rubbing it gently into the fabric. Wipe the paste from the pillow case with a damp cloth. Launder the pillow case again with laundry detergent and cold water.
Place the pillow case in the dryer only after removing the blood spot.
