How to get blood out of carpet
So there is blood in your carpet… You cut your finger, your son scraped his knee, or your daughter Marsha got hit in the nose with a football. If you can stomach it, and have no reason to believe the small amount of blood is a risk to you, you can try to clean it. Blood, like wine or coffee, is a hard stain to remove. It’s best if you move quickly, here is what you should do.
The first thing you should do is mix one tablespoon of clear, scent-free, liquid hand dishwashing detergent, with two cups of cold water. To be clear we mean the stuff you use on dishes at the sink, not in the automatic dish washing machine. Using a clean white cloth, sponge the stain with the detergent solution. Blot and repeat until the stain is removed then go over the spot once more with a sponge and cold water. Don’t scrub, blot, you want to lift the stain not spread it.
If this option doesn’t work you can try hydrogen peroxide. It is an oxidizer, though not as strong as bleach it does make surfaces lighter. Try a little hydrogen peroxide on a small inconspicuous area first. Using a cotton swab, apply hydrogen peroxide to the stain. Again blot, don’t scrub. When the stain is lifted rinse with a damp cloth and allow the area to dry.
