How to Get Blood Out of Fabric/Clothes

Last night, my youngest child had a
horrible nose bleed Seriously, it was like a crime scene in there. Check this out. And I was kind of surprised to learn how many people don’t know this trick. Just gonna pour a little bit of peroxide on the blood. Let it work for about 20 to 30 seconds. Rinse out the spot And if that spot didn’t totally come out, just do it again. You can get a bottle of peroxide like this at any grocery store or drugstore for about a dollar. Definitely worth keeping a bottle of this under your sink in case of emergencies. Ladies, you know what I’m talking about. The sooner you can do this after the stain actually occurs, the better off
you’re gonna be. Once it starts to dry, it’s a lot harder to get out. Once you’ve gotten as much out with the peroxide as you can, you can spray whatever is left
on the stain with some Spray-n-Wash or Shout, or whatever kind of laundry stain remover you might have around. OxiClean might be good too. Wait about 20-30 minutes, and then wash it. If the fabric happens to be white you can spray it with some bleach. HOWEVER Be extremely careful with bleach, because bleach bleaches EVERYTHING it comes in contact with. Case in point: I’m still kinda cryin’ about that one a little bit. Also, if you’re gonna spray it with
bleach you’re gonna want to wash it right away. Don’t just spray it and then
throw it in the laundry and wait a week until laundry day, because bleach will
actually eat through the fabric. PSA to all the ladies and girls out there: It’s a good idea even as an adult to have a waterproof mattress cover as well as
additional pillow covers below your pillowcase for just such an occasion. I really don’t want to get my red shirt splattered.


  1. I've been using peroxide to get blood out of fabric a long time. My mama had 4 girls and she taught all of us to use it. I can't believe so many people don't know this tip. Have a great day. Hugs from the southeast coast of Florida🌴😎💙😎🌴

  2. Peroxide will take out any protein-based stain… even armpit stains… Mom of 8 male critters speaking from experience.

  3. Something my mother taught me (I'm 62) was if I can catch a stain such as blood or coffee, she always used a "Wet One". It has taken out about every stain I've tried it on.
