How to remove blood stains from a linen slipcover? Dry cleaning did not work.
We have some great stain removal recipes that work for items even after they’ve been dry cleaned.
The Stain Solution works well for tannin stains such as blood. As linen is very easy to launder, we suggest using the All-Purpose Bleach Alternative as well.
For a tough stain that has set in, pretreat with the Stain Solution and the All-Purpose Bleach Alternative. They make a type of paste when combined. The All-Purpose Bleach alternative is an oxygen-based bleach and is safe for all colors. Wet the stained area and apply the products directly onto the stain. Make sure to work it into the fabric and let soak in a warm/hot water bath. Add some more All-Purpose Bleach Alternative to the bath.
Finally, launder as normal. Again, you can pour another capful of bleach alternative into the drum of the washing machine.
I hope this helps. I've attached our recipe for Stain Removal, which includes more detail for your convenience.
