8 Common Items That Effectively Remove Blood Stains





Whatever the situations might be, at some point in your life you’ll get blood on your clothing or sheets. Wet or dry, removing blood stains has always been a challenge.

Trying to remove blood stains while they’re still wet is the easiest one to do. But just in case it gets a little bit too hard to remove, here are eight common items that you can use to remove them effectively.

1. Vinegar

Vinegar poured directly on the stain is one of the most effective methods to clean blood. Blot until the stain is removed and rinse with water to remove the vinegar smell. Or you can soak in for 5-10 minutes to remove stubborn blood stains.

2. Ammonia


Ammonia works better to lift the old set-in blood stains from clothes. When you work with ammonia, it is a good idea to wear gloves and use it in a ventilated area. It’s best to wash the garment immediately after treating.

3. Hydrogen Peroxide

Apply hydrogen peroxide directly to the stain then rinse with cold water.

4. Cola

Cola can clean blood stains from fabrics and clothes easily, thanks to carbonic and phosphoric acid ingredients. Simply take a bottle of cola and pour it directly on the stain and let it soak for a few hours, the more, the better.

5. WD-40

Use WD-40 to remove blood stains by spraying directly on the stain. Allow it to sit on the fabric for 3-5 minutes and then wash as usual.

6. Cornstarch

Mix cornstarch with cold water to make a paste, then cover the stain with it and rub gently. Let it dry and rinse.

7. Talcum Powder


The procedure is identical to cornstarch. Just make a paste of talcum powder and water, then apply it to the stain and allow it to dry.

8. Cold Salt Water

Hot water will set blood stain, but soaking the fabric with a quart of cold water and two tablespoons of table salt will lift the stain.
