    To remove blood, if it is your own, use your saliva. If that fails, use hydrogen peroxide.

    Well, I sure learned something new. Had never heard of the spit or peroxide trick.

    Our son is a paramedic and batallion chief with FD. He said to put peroxide on a blood stain and it disappears. I tried it and it works! He said don't wash first, just put the peroxide on it.

    I keep a bottle of hydrogen peroxide in the laundry room. When wetting the fabric with peroxide, it bubbles up like mad over the blood stain; the rest of the fabric merely looks wet. The stuff works like magic on blood stains. And it's cheap!

    Hydrogen peroxide works wonders - inexpensive old nurses trick. Test it out on a scrap first, but I have never had it change or create any problems with fabric.

    And you don't have to worry about what you might have been eating that colored your spit for a NEW stain. Coffee....tea....chocolate....
    TRUTH is seldom appreciated, unless you happen to agree with it. When you don't agree, you just call it rude.

    I use diluted Simple Green cleaner. It is marvelous for getting out blood. In my younger days, ahem, I kept a spray bottle in the bathroom and it saved my clothing on a regular basis. It seems to just lift blood stains so that they wash away like magic. And, unlike hydrogen peroxide, Simple Green will not bleach surrounding colors -- always an unkown with H2O2.
