Removing blood stains from whites and colors

One
Rinse
After a hug and comforting word, quickly rinse out stain with cold water.

Two
Pre-Soak
Pre-soak in cold water with laundry detergent for at least 30 minutes, then rinse.

Three
Repeat
Repeat until stain disappears.

Four
Wash
Wash in cold water with your favorite detergent. Add Clorox® Regular-Bleach2 to whites or Clorox 2® Stain Remover & Color Booster to colors.


Tip
Soak for 30–60 minutes in cool water with a good detergent that contains enzymes. Enzymes break down the proteins in the blood, and make it easier to get the stain out.
