Quick Tips for Removing Blood Stains

Blood stains are permanent once they set in. WnJ Services believes that it is crucial to remove them before the item is washed and dried. It doesn’t take an expensive stain remover to eliminate blood stains neither is it an extremely difficult process. We would like to introduce some incredibly simple and easy methods that require only simple house commodities to all homeowners having difficulty removing blood stains.

Simplest Method

  1. Using only COLD water to dampen the stain.
  2. Rub salt into the area (fold the stain in on its self and rub the fabric together to save time and effort.
  3. When the blood is nearly gone just throw the garment in the washing machine on a normal cycle.

Soap Lather Method

  1. Wet the stained area in cool or cold water.
  2. Rub a generous amount of soap or shampoo right into stain.
  3. Scrub the area hard between your fists, with your palms facing each other.
  4. Work up a good lather. Add more water if needed.
  5. Rinse in cold water and repeat until the stain is gone. Do not use hot water. Hot water makes the stain set in.
  6. If hand washing with soap does not immediately get the blood out, pour ammonia straight on most items of clothing. It will NOT damage the fabric like bleach will. It won’t fade your clothes unless the dye in the fabric is not permanent or tie dyed or batik.
  7. The blood stain will magically disappear.


  • Generally, the method above will work; however, if it does not, try soaking blood-stained clothing in a solution of one part ammonia to five parts water for 15 minutes. Then put the stained clothing in a washing machine and launder as usual.
  • The sooner you get to it, the better and faster this method works.


  • Don’t use warm or hot water - the stain will set for good, because the hot water will cook the proteins in the blood. If you'd like to wash the garment in warmer water, thoroughly remove the stain in cool water first.
