Removing blood stains from towels

Does anyone know a good way to remove blood stains from towels?

DH had a nosebleed as he got out of the shower yesterday and didn't tell me until today... I just put them to soak in cold water, but is there anything else I can do to pre-treat the stains before washing? Is peroxide safe to use on colored items?

Thanks!

Re: Removing blood stains from towels

  • When  I had to get blood out of some of DH's clothes I set the washer for the extra small size and added a giant scoop of oxyclean, and a regular amount of liquid detergent. Then I let that all soak for like 24 hours, going in and agitating it once in a while for 30 seconds or so. Then after soaking, increase the load size to whatever is correct (usually large for me) and let it run.  That's worked for me - good luck :)

  • I use hydrogen peroxide.
  • Hydrogen peroxide is what I used on my scrubs, white and colored.

    That's our hospital trick too - works great!

  • Thanks ladies!

    Ended up soaking them in cold water with oxyclean overnight and that did the trick.

  • Hydrogen Peroxide or oxyclean works.
