Best way to get blood out of clothes?

DS was wearing his favourite top at nursery today (just from supermarket but he loves it).

Sadly he had a huge nose bleed and there is quite a lot of blood on his top (according to staff his first reaction was to wipe his nose on his top sad ) He's really upset that as he puts it his "tractor top is really ruined mummy".

I've put it to soak but not sure of best way to deal with blood stains. Can anyone help please?

A 40*c wash with a good bio or non bio powder I've found always works for me

Soak in cold water overnight, if you wash it in hot water you could set the stain. Then bio wash tmw.

Vanish oxy-action gets blood out very easily, will still work if you treat it tomorrow

Soak in luke warm water and a handful of salt then wash in machine using bio powder.

always thoroughly run under cold water first, then a bit of vanish in the machine and a 40 degree wash should do it.

I had the same problem a while back (why did DD have to be wearing white??)...soaked in cold salty water overnight and then washed as normal with bio liquid!

thank you now in a sink if cold salty water and off to buy some vanish in the morning. Poor DS he's very sad about it.

Rinse in cold water and wash in bio powder. I have never needed vanish for blood. If it is a stubborn stain rub some washing up liquid into it and rinse before machine washing
