DS hit his head at school yesterday, went to A & E and got it glued. I tried washing his polo shirt on a 40 degree wash, it's still looking kind of rust-coloured. Before it was washed it looked like he'd been beheaded, there was so much blood. He only has to wear it for 1 more half-term, they're bringing in proper shirts and ties in September. I suppose I could handle it looking grubby for a few more weeks, but has anyone got any tips for getting the blood out, preferably eco-friendly?
Yes for future accidents ( not that I would wish those on you) - no hot water it sets the blood a protein a bit like egg white in hot water it coagulates - also salt works rather well at getting rid of it no idea why !!
