Guess what I got for Mothers Day?

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post
My period a freaking week early! Apparently it started in the middle of the night and I think I have now ruined my 2 week old ivory, $130 sheets. Is there any hope on saving these? I am going to wake my husband up so I can strip the bed.

My husband had a vasectomy 5 years ago and this is way too much for that. We would love it if we were pregnant, but its not going to happen for us.

Yup. Cold water for the peroxide like someone else said. But recently my period appeared out of nowhere, tried to kill me, and destroy every pair of underwear I had. I usually use peroxide but ran out and the oxyclean works well. Remember not to dry them til you know it's all clean. And get to it ASAP.

Oh, happy mothers day!

If it won't damage them peroxide gets blood out and I've had great luck with oxyclean and hot water. Run it in real good then let it soak an hot or two.

Oxyclean. Peroxide.

I got melted crayons out of white pants once. I used a mix of oxy clean, borax, and peroxide.

Yes, i have a steam clean function. I will try that if soaking in the peroxide doesn't work. Thanks!

Also, I just started using Bac-Out (made by BioKleen) on our cloth diapers and supposedly its awesome on stains. Might be worth a try.

I think if you soak it you will bleach out the color

The way I get blood out of anything is peroxide.  I found that, if I wet the blood stain with peroxide, then leave it alone for a while (couple hours, give or take) and then wet it again, and continue repeating, eventually the peroxide disolves all the blood.  I would do sheets in a tub (bath tub, storage tote, whatever's large enough to hold them).

I read some of the other posts; I don't use water until the peroxide is done doing its job; then I wash as usual (because all the blood is gone).

Sorry to hear Aunt Flow picked the wrong day to visit this month!!! :(
