Instructions

  1. 1

    Presoak the garment in cold water for 2 hours. The blood dissolves easily in cold water.

  2. 2

    Wash the garment in a cold wash cycle with mild detergent. Do not dry. Heat of any sort can cause the blood stain to cook and possibly make it irremovable.

  3. 3

    Check to see if the stain came out. If it did not, then create a paste to remove the stain.

  4. 4

    Mix 1 tbsp of meat tenderizer and 2 tsp of cold water. Mix them until a paste is formed.

  5. 5

    Spread the paste onto the garment with your fingers. Let the paste sit for 1 hour.

  6. 6

    Launder the garment in cold water. If the stain is not fully removed, then repeat the process.
