Jeans Care - Remove Blood Stain From Jeans
Blood stains happen, they're so not fun, I call them creepy stains. The most important thing to remember about removing blood stains is that the quicker you can get to them, the better.
If the blood stains are fresh, wipe them immediately after they form with a clean white cloth soaked in cold water (NEVER warm or hot water), repeating the process until the cloth comes off clean. Once the stain has vanished, dry the area with clean, absorbent paper towels.
For dried blood stains, mix a mild detergent with cold water and wet the stained area with a clean cloth. Once you blot the stain some, it will come off. For the residue, mix some ammonia in cold water and once again blot the stain. By now, most of the stain ought to have disappeared. If you still see some residue, sponge it with a clean cloth soaked in cold water.
A few people suggest peroxide to clean the stain easily, and I think it works great on whites, but peroxide can cause further damage to denim and bleach it.
*There are new products available, usually labeled as urine neutralizers, found in stores that carry pet products. These products remove most bodily fluids, not just urine. I have had great success removing blood, vomit and urine odor and stains from garments, carpets, etc. I've even found a version that is sold at dollar stores that works very well. The product can be added directly to the washing machine as an added bonus.
