How to Remove Blood Stain from Manmade Fabrics and Cotton
- Turn the garment inside out and run clean, cold water through the stain from the back. This will prevent the stain from working deeper into the fibres of the fabric.
- Next, take a regular bar of hand soap, or liquid dish soap and rub it into the stain. Be aware that too much agitation can damage natural fibres like cotton.
