There's times when there's blood on the clothing and you are never sure on how to get it out? I am Cyn Deer, I'm from 3's Comany Too and I'm going to give you a couple of tips on how to remove blood. Well, the first thing you want to do is if it's fresh blood is you want to immediately rinse in cool water, try to get some of it out that way. You are going to try to blot it, get some of it off that way. You are going to use a little bit of diluted dish detergent and rub at the blood itself. Then you have got to rinse again and then after you get the stain off you are going to throw it in the laundry and launder as you would normally launder the piece of clothing according to the tag. Rinsing periodically. If you have an old stain you may want to put it in some cold water with some salt. Salt, briney, salt water will help to remove an old blood stain. The idea is if it is fresh, get to it as quick as possible use the cold water and blot and just try and get it off as quick as possible. Hopefully, you don't get blood stains today or ever. Have a great day.
