3 Tips to Remove Blood Stain

From DIY mixes to OTC fixes, with these top tips from the pros, removal of blood stains and renewal of old spot areas is a breeze.

There you have it. The evidence is quite clear. Either on your favorite chair by accident or through the bed linens right down into the mattress. Bloodstains. The first reaction is flipping the cushion or rolling the sheets into a ball until the next laundry time, flipping the mattress and moving on as if nothing really happened. After all, out of mind out of sight, right? Wrong. All it takes is a few minutes, a bit of patience, some DIY know-how and a level head to stave off the shame.

The Science Behind the Substance

Have you ever wondered why blood looks blue inside your vein and then once out in the open, it enriches to its most peak sanguine claret? The very same reason we do...oxygen. To fight the iron deposits in the iodine content of blood, we need to hit it with air, shock it with cold and say goodbye to the old. Ultra-rich in protein, blood stains are only tricky when attacked with the wrong product. What might be ready for a scalding hot water and bleach scrubbing is not what the Doctor orders in this case. Surprisingly, you may not even have to leave home to grab an O.T.C. blood stain remover. Chances are good that your own apothecary has everything you need. What you are looking for is a product that is naturally comprised of oxygenated enzymes and surfactants. Something that will lower the tension in your water while increasing it to a soluble, foaming agent of destruction. Hydrogen peroxide.

The “ides” will March..

You’ve got your main weapon. The second phase is to break up the enemy line and assess the battleground. For cleaning mattress, as soon as possible, get the linens into the washing machine or into a tub to soak until you can get to one. Remember, cold water only and give a good presoak on a rinse cycle with ice and salt before running them through another cold wash. If possible, avoid using a dryer as heat will set in any remaining traces before you get a second shot, if needed. Line dry is the way to fly. Then its onward to the front lines. Mix a few drops of simple dish detergent with peroxide and cold water in a spray bottle (an even ratio will do nicely, and you can adjust if needed). Grab a few more ice cubes in a bag or wrapped in a cloth and let the cold compress sit on the stain for a few minutes, do NOT weight it down and please resist the urge to apply full body pressure as this will only press the blood deeper into the surface. Then spray the spot with your tincture and gently blot it up with a clean rag or towel as you go along. Once all traces are removed, let the surface air dry, using either and open window or a fan if you prefer.

Old news got you singing the blues?

Then there will be the day that you discover what someone tried to cover by flipping over a cushion instead of coming clean with admission. It happens. Whether by a dinner guest, visiting family member or child with a scraped knee or elbow. Just turn it over....nobody will find it. The dry caked-on stain is there and now, you’ve really got a challenge ahead of you. Or do you? Follow the same removal tips as above only let the ice be your driving force. STOP! If you’re looking at leather of any type, there will be an alternate way to wrangle this. But we’ll get to that momentarily. Back to the ice front, after the freeze, try a soft-bristled brush to loosen tqshe stain up first. Don’t get over-exuberant as gentle is still the best. If the stain has lessened in size, color, or stiffness, then pass over with a vacuum and the upholstery attachment will win the battle for you. If not, then it’s onto the D.I.Y. bottle of bloodstain remover spray technique. Is it leather that’s got you under the weather? The only attempt you really want to make with any stain on any leather, including suedes and patent, nubucks and tanned, is a simple warm water dab with a tiny trace of soap.
