ERIC STROMER: Hey, I’m Eric Stromer, and this is your GMC Trade Secret.
I’m going to show you a sure-fire way to remove blood stains from clothing.
Now, every time I cut myself shaving or my kids skin their knees, it means blood stains. And removing blood stains in clothing can be tricky. Once they’ve set, they can be almost impossible to get out.
Now, the trick here is to start working on the stain as soon as possible. Start by running some cold water over the area. Now just sprinkle a little bit of salt right on that. Go ahead and start rubbing that together. Now we’re going to go ahead and rinse again. That works out great. Now the stains are really gone and you should be able to throw the garment in the laundry.
Now, another method calls for scrubbing the area with soap or shampoo, working it into a lather, and then you just rinse with cold water and the stain should disappear.
Now, for a particularly difficult blood stain, you can resort to ammonia. It might smell awful, but it’s a strong cleaning agent that is much safer to use on clothing than bleach. Just go ahead and scrub the sand, then rinse in cold water. And then just go ahead and wash like you would normally wash any garment.
Now, here’s a tip. Before you put it in the dryer, make sure that stain is thoroughly gone, because if you don’t, the dryer will make that stain permanently set.
Well, that’s it. Next time you get blood on your clothing, don’t worry about it. Just use these techniques.
