More Tips


Cold water is best for blood stains as blood will break down and dissolve. Warm or hot water will literally "cook" the blood and the stain will become more difficult to remove.


If you don't have a Vanish stain removal product to hand then don't worry. We're still able to provide some handy hints on removing stains. Vanish will help you remove the stains even once they have dried-in.

  • Remove as much blood as possible with cold, clean water. Remember to apply water from both sides of the fabric.
