Need Help On How To Get Out Dried Blood

bettyd_z7_vaAugust 24, 2009

Our 76 year old Aunt has some antique quilts that have dried blood on them in several spots. Long story, but I don't think the spots are more than a few months old.

She wants to keep them because her Aunt made them for her many years ago.

Does anyone have any suggestions on how I can get the blood out?

I would appreciate any help I can get.

Thanks in advance.

Soak them in hyrogen peroxide, then wash gently.

I pour the hydrogen peroxide directly on the blood stain, and then rinse with water. The hydrogen peroxide works immediately. You will see it bubble and the stain is gone.
