What is the best way to get blood out of carpet?
I have been trying to get blood out of carpet but it just keeps on coming back up in the fibers just when I think I have gotten it.
You could try brushing it first with a wire brush if the blood is dry and then apply hydrogen peroxide if it is available in your country.
Use cold water - not hot or warm - mix two cups cold water and a tablespoon of liquid hand dish washing detergent. If the stain is dried, then brush it well.
Using clean white cloth, sponge stain with dish washing solution.
Never mix ammonia and chlorine bleach - it has hazardous fumes.
Only ammonia needs well ventilated area.
Thank you for the recipe Examiner and the instructions. I have been using the hydrogen peroxide with some very good results. There's just so much blood to clean that it will take time, and possibly more applications later to get all the blood out.
I use hydro peroxide for getting blood out of anything that is washable. I used to be a Lab Tech and was always getting blood on my white uniform. Just this morning, I got a bad scratch on my forearm and I got blood on my clean shirt. Used it, and I have no more blood or stain.
Susie, I see below you left the following comment.

Should we alert CSI? Do you plan to be on the "ID" Channel?
This almost sounds like you're describing a crime scene. LOL!
If it's that bad you may want to either replace the carpet or go with wood/laminate floors. Best wishes!
Oh my, no its not a crime scene. I would go with a blood spatter pattern analyst, Dexter would do nicely. lol You got me laughing.
LoL! I was going to ask the same about it being a crime scene. I was going to suggest hydrogen peroxide as well
You have to soak it in warm water with fabric conditioner.

I usually get 2-3 at 1 or 2 periods in a month, I found this website which has message board for people who suffer badly with painful ulcers almost 1cm in size... They drain the life out of you and make you seem unpleasant to people when you just can't smile!
