Full Answer

  1. Rinse the stain

    Rinse the blood-stained area of the clothing in water to saturate the area and dissolve as much of the stain as possible. Do not soak the entire article of clothing, as this could cause the stain to spread.

  2. Treat the piece of clothing with peroxide

    Dip a cloth in peroxide, and use it to blot the stain. If the stain can't be removed by blotting, pour a small amount of the peroxide on the area and let it soak for about five minutes. This should remove any additional blood that may be left.

  3. Rinse and treat with detergent if needed

    Rinse the stained area with water to remove the peroxide. If the stain is still visible, spot treat with a small amount of laundry detergent. Rub the detergent into the stain with your fingers or with a soft toothbrush. Rinse the area with water.

  4. Launder the item as usual

    Wash clothing as usual. The stain should now be completely gone.
