Although the initial reaction to the sight of blood may be to panic (first at the blood, then at the clothes or the carpet!), there’s really no need. Whether it’s fresh from moments ago or it’s long since dried into the fabric, simply use Vanish and let blood stains be gone.
If you’ve got enough time, it’s best to soak the affected garment first when it comes to tricky stains like blood, to allow the Vanish formula to really get to work and lift these tough stains and unpleasant odours away.
Read on for instructions on how to get the best results when removing blood stains from a range of different fabrics. But first – a quick tip: to remove blood stains from clothing, sheets, bed linen and towels, the secret is to always rinse the stain with cold water before soaking (as this helps the blood break down and dissolve). Warm or hot water will set the stain, making it less manageable and more difficult to remove!
