Anyone know how to get blood out of clothes?

I used bleach...that didn't work that good....now it's brown. Anyone know anything else I can use to try to get the blood out??

  • Um... try bleaching it again? Since you've already tried it sounds like it's set it.
    Go to this site, I've used these methods and they have all worked, though this was before the stain set in so good luck.

  • And never ever use hot water with blood stains, that sets it in, and never dry it before removing the stains either.

  • Soak it in hot water and the oxi clean stuff. Use double the amount is says on the package. I have used this after getting blood all over a shirt after Kyra skinned her knee and had to be packed home. Came out.
    Just soak it in the sink or a bucket for about an hour or two, depending on how much it is, then wash like normal.

  • Hand wash/scrub the stain using cold water and a touch of soap (laundry soap or even handwash soap). Work it through the spot, scrub it as best you can and rinse it out. Works every time.
