Not to do

Never apply hot water to the stain, otherwise it will become permanently embedded in the fabric. And removing it turns out to be impossible ...

How to do

It takes place in two parts.

1. To remove a blood stain, you first need to take the stained item of clothing and soak it in a good volume of water for at least 24 hours.

The older the stain, the more it will have dried and the longer it will therefore be necessary to let the stained garment soak in cold water.

2. After this operation, you will just have to put it in the wash as usual, with the rest of the household linen.

Case by case

There can be several scenarios, each with a solution:

1. If the stain is on a mattress, squeeze a lemon juice on a clean cloth and rub it on the soiled spot.

2. If the stain is small, saliva works very well. But it must be that of the person who bled: put a little saliva on the stain, wait a moment, then machine as usual!


And there you have it, the blood stain on your clothes is gone :-)

Savings made

With this simple trick, you won't need to take your garment to the dry cleaners. It will be time saved and most importantly money that you will not need to spend.

Everyone knows that dyer notes are generally quite salty: for a shirt, depending on the region, it takes between € 2.70 and € 5.50. So at the rate of 10 spots per year (and with children we can get there quickly!), We save between 27 and 55 €! What to buy a new shirt ...

A little water and detergent will be all you need for this two-step wash to remove blood stains.

And for those who are fans of stain removers to apply to the laundry before washing, it is also a less expense.
