How can I get a blood stain out of my beige sofa?

My hubby sliced his leg open and accidentally bled on our new sofa.

  • Hydrogen peroxide? I'd test it on an inconspicuous spot first, to be safe.

  • There is an awesome product called Simple Solution that I swear by! It's removed red wine sangria off a friend's white shirt, it's removed stains, etc. from the dog and other things off carpeting. Even though my dog is 8 and very well trained, and my children are grown, I still keep this on hand for spills and stains. Works GREAT!!

  • Peroxide works great for any kind of blood stain. It's best to attack it while it's fresh though. So much easier then.

  • I was going to say Peroxide as well, I've used it on clothes and it's amazing. I've never had it discolor anything, but you should test first.
