How do I get blood out of a seat belt?

My daughter got a bloody nose on the way home from the store today, and of course I didn't have any kleenex or anything. So now, her seat belt is covered. What's the best way to clean it? This is the seat belt attached to the vehicle.

  • soak it some peroxide... let it fizz and repeat. Keep doing that a few times, then clean it with a scrub brush & some detergent. The peroxide will break up the enzymes, also a great pretreater for blood on clothing. I've used it many times to get blood out of cloths from work.

  • Get a bucket & fill it with hot water & dish Soap. Get some rags & take a damp rag, wrap it around the seat belt & scrub up & down & keep rinsing the rag. Best to do it before the blood dries.

  • I went thru that about a year ago when my son accidentally put his hand thru a window. He soaked thru the towel on our 10 min drive to the hosp.! So yes, peroxide does work but it takes some doing b/c of all the groves in the seat-belt. Happy scrubbing! :p

  • You can remove a seatbelt. Just lift the seat up, see where it's attached, and then get the right tool to remove it. I did in our sons Jeep, and put them in the sink with laundry soap, let them soak, rinsed them, hung them to dry, and put them back in.

  • One good trick for getting any spot out is to put a clean cloth behind it to give the spot somewhere to go. As you scrub push it into that cloth and you will make faster work of it. GL
