    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.

      Sally, I will give that a try with a wire brush and hydrogen peroxide (I have some). Thank you for suggesting that. And, I will let you know how it works.

    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.

      That's a great testimonial, Mary. Thank you for sharing that. I hope you didn't scratch that arm too bad and that it heals up soon.

    Susie, I see below you left the following comment.
    " 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."
    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!

      LoL!  I was going to ask the same about it being a crime scene.  I was going to suggest hydrogen peroxide as well
