How to get blood out of a mattress

There are several ways and products on how to get blood out of your mattress.

It depends on how fresh the blood is, because if you've just stained the mattress, you can easily get it out.

If it has been there for quite some time, then you might need to apply more than water to it, but do not worry because your mattress will be as good as new.

Cold Water

This might sound really easy but it's true.

If you've just stained your mattress with blood, cold water is the way to go.

Grab a white cloth or paper towel and wet it with cold water and then dab the cloth on the blood stain.

Make sure that you do not rub it, or else the stain will get bigger.

Also make sure to use a white cloth or rag, nothing of colour, to clean your mattress, or else the colour might dissolve onto your mattress and make the matter worse.

Also, do not use hot water because it can make your blood stain "cooked" permanently into your mattress.

Keep dapping the blood stain with your wet white cloth and eventually the stain should come off.

Make sure that you also do not apply too much water or else you can risk mould growing on your mattress.

Baking soda

Mix one part of baking soda with two parts of cold water.

With a white paper towel or cloth, apply it to the mattress and let it sit for 30 minutes.

Then rinse it off with another white paper towel or cloth.

Make sure that you dab it and not rub or else the stain will spread.

The area will probably have a bit left to dry and to let it do so you can put a fan directly on it or open a window.

Salt, corn starch and hydrogen peroxide

If nothing has worked so far, then we suggest mixing these three ingredients together.

Mix half a cup of corn starch, one tablespoon of salt and a quarter of a cup of hydrogen peroxide.

Salt and hydrogen peroxide are great cleaning material, as it was explained in another story of ours.

Once these three ingredients are mixed, they should form a paste which you can apply to the stain on your mattress.

Apply it and let it dry completely before touching it.

Once it dries, either scrape it up with a knife or spatula or else, vacuum over it.

You can repeat this method a few more times to make sure that your mattress looks as good as new.

Meat tenderizer

Our last suggestions is using a meat tenderizer.

Use one tablespoon of meat tenderizing powder and two teaspoons of cold water to create a paste.

Rub the paste over the blood stain and let it dry on it for about an hour.

Once it dried up, wipe the paste with a cloth soaked in cold water but be careful not to rub it in.
