COIT’s Guide to Removing Blood Stains

When it comes to keeping your home clean, your average household cleaner usually removes dirt and odor, right? 

But when the Band-Aids don’t do their job, what should you use for blood stain removal on various surfaces in your home? 

COIT offers step-by-step guides to help remove blood stains that are tough to clean.

Why Does Blood Stain?

Simply stated, blood is made up of cells and watery liquid called plasma.  Since plasma is about 93% water, you would think a blood stain would be easy to remove, right?

Not the case. Blood stains are definitely high on the list of tough stains to remove, but that doesn’t mean you can’t get rid of them. 

Get Some Water….Fast!

Water is definitely your friend when it comes to blood stain removal; and so is time. The faster you act, the more likely you are to remove the stain.  

Use cold water, instead of hot water, if the blood stain is rather recent. You may be able to wipe it away with a cloth before it dries. Hot water can help the stain set into the surface, while cold water does the opposite.
