How to Get Blood Out of Clothes

We’ve all been there: While attempting to balance bags, boxes, and bundles of toys in your arms, you miss a step and take a tumble. Even after you dust yourself off and carry on, there may be telltale signs of your spill, like blood stains on your sleeve or pant leg. Cleaning up your wound — even if it’s minor — should always be your first concern, but then it’s best to get rid of the blood on your clothing, especially if it’s still fresh.

All different types of clothing — white blouses, blue jeans, dark-colored dresses, and so on — call for the same cleaning approach. Before you try your hand at removing blood stains, check the care tags on your clothing to make sure that bleach (the stain-busting MVP) won’t discolor or ruin the fabric. Always use the care instructions as your guide, but in most instances, bleaching wool, silk, mohair, leather, spandex and non-colorfast colors is not recommended.

If you’re dealing with a kind of fabric that bleaches well, follow this guide on how to get blood out of clothes by Carolyn Forte, Director of the Good Housekeeping Institute Cleaning Lab. While you might be curious

January 2021 Home Product Recommendations from GH’s Senior Home Editor

As Good Housekeeping’s senior home editor, I come across tons of home-related products, both good and bad. But there are some special finds that are just too great to keep to myself. That’s why I’m sharing my favorite home items with you—our readers—here on our website every month in the hope that you’ll appreciate them as much as I do.


Last year presented challenges for many of us, myself included. So rather than deal with the pressure of committing to a never-ending list of resolutions, I’ve decided to keep it simple with a few manageable goals. At the top of the list are celebrating good design (it’s my job as Good Housekeeping‘s senior home editor) and valuing self-care. With these two thoughts in mind, I rounded up 11 product recommendations that will hopefully also bring you a bit of joy in the new year.
