  • Oxy clean paste and a carpet cleaner. Good luck after you treat the carpet you need to get a bat and beat him with it. LOL

  • Then you'll need a way to get blood stains out of the carpet. Beat your BIL outside!! :)

  • For the carpet you might try this: 1. Spray water on the carpet where the stain is with a spray bottle. 2. Place a dampened colorfast towel over the stain. 3. Place a hot iron on top of the towel and apply a little pressure.
    This may take some time and you will have to keep lifting the iron back up and spray a little more water on the carpet and towel and move the towel to a clean part of the towel, but it will eventually steam the ink out. I used this method to remove red punch, sunblock, hot pink nail polish, and a few mystery stains. I'm not sure if it would work the same on the fabric on a couch though. Good luck, I hope you can get the stains out.

  • Old fashioned Aqua Net hair spray works good for getting out ink
