Tip: Remove Blood Stains


I get bloody noses when I sleep all the time so when I wake up I get blood stains on my sheets and pillow cases. Blood stains are so bad for fabric because they are stubborn and hard to get out just with regular washing.

Here are my foul-proof tips to save all your fabrics:
1. NOTE* It is easiest if you can try to catch the stain when it is fresh, but if it is not, it's ok but combine some hydrogen peroxide and dish liquid in a bowl. Blot the stain with a sponge.

2. Wash in the laundry than air dry. If you put it in the dryer the heat may set the stain in the fabric even more.

3. If all else fails, get Oxy Clean

Thanks for the article on how to remove dry blood stains from clothes and sheets. My daughter gets bloody noses at night also. I have found that a humidifier in her room as really helped to make them less frequent.

Thanks so much for the extra tip! I will see about investing in one. Believe it or not I haven't had one now that we are in the winter months.
