Need Help On How To Get Out Dried Blood

Posted by bettyd_z7_va (My Page) on

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.

They are double bed size. How much ratio peroxide to water?
Thanks SOOO much for your help.

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.

Thank You both so much, Jannie and Graywings.

I will let you know how well it works for me.

Thanks again,
