Dried up Blood Stain Removal

Cleaning fresh blood stains can be a walk in the park. However, a dried-up bloodstain can prove to be a bit difficult to treat. But worry not here is some useful knowledge on how to work around this.

How to Clean Dried up Bloodstain with Hydrogen Peroxide

A few pointers to keep in mind during this treatment process to help protect your fabrics

  • Avoid using heat as this will only help the stain to set
  • Treat the stain before it permanently sets
  • Test the treatment on a small area to avoid damaging delicate fabrics
  • Work from the outside going in to avoid further spreading the stain

What You Need

  • Hydrogen peroxide
  • A brush
  • A vacuum cleaner
  • Running water
  • Clean Rug or towel
  • Mild liquid laundry detergent

How to Clean the Stain

So now that you've gathered all the supplies you need here's a step by step guide on how to put in the real work.

  1. Using the brush, try and brush off any blood that is not stuck on the fabric. While working on a rug or upholstery, this is where you use the vacuum. Vacuum the area repeatedly to help loosen the dried up blood.
  2. Blot the area with cold water. While doing this it’s advisable to do it from the back as doing it directly at the top might force the particles to go deeper into the fabric.
  3. Soak only the affected area with cold water and let it sit for up to1 hour to dissolve as much blood as possible.
  4. Blot the area with a rag or towel soaked with hydrogen peroxide to dissolve and remove the remaining stains.
  5. Suppose the stain is still visible use the mild laundry detergent to treat the area with a soft bristle brush. You don't want to use harsh motions as this might tear or damage the fabric or fibers.
  6. Rinse the stained are. If need be, repeat the spot treatment as needed until you achieve the desired results.
