    Hydrogen peroxide is good for removing blood. Just pour it on the stain, full strength, let it foam, use a paper towel to press on the stain and remove it, then do the peroxide thing again. When the stain gets light, you can rub more peroxide into the stain and scrub it with a washcloth. It should come right out. You can get the peroxide from most drug stores and it might be 3% or 9%. Doesn't matter, it will all work. Then wash with your regular wash. Good luck

  • Wash it! But not in hot water as it will set the stain. Do not use the dryer until the stain is gone.

    Oxi-Clean!! Soak it in a bucket for 24 hours and rotate the pillow occasionally.

  • I agree with the hydrogen peroxide method on a fairly fresh stain. It may not work so well with an older dried stain though. Then, soak in a mixture of blue Dawn dish soap and water to remove the rest.

    My favorite go to for stains before they are washed is RESOLVE. It will remove almost any stain.
