How to Clean and Get Rid of Blood Stains

Blood stains can splatter on our clothing and other things when we accidentally prick or cut ourselves, or when women have their monthly periods.  We can also get blood on our clothing when we clean fish or when we handle fresh meats. Removing blood stains can be a challenge. Here are some tips for cleaning and getting rid of blood stains:

Water and powder

Directions: Make a paste of water and cornstarch, cornmeal or talcum powder. Put this paste on fresh spots. Then let try and brush off.

Meat tenderizer

Cover fresh or dried stains with meat tenderizer and add cool water. After 15 to 30 mins, sponge off with cool water.

Hydrogen Peroxide

If you get fresh blood on leather, you can use a little hydrogen peroxide. After it bubbles, wipe it off

White cotton thread with saliva

Don’t say eeeewww too soon just because this method uses saliva. If you prick your finger while sewing and get blood on the fabric, immediately wet a long   a piece of white cotton thread with saliva and place it across the spot. The thread will absorb the blood.
