cold water is meant to work.

Reckon though if you have tried other things first and these haven't then it may be permanent.

Leave out in sunlight?

Bleach...... soak it in mild solution for 20min and keep on checking it.

Soak in cold water for at least an hour, then wash in that Vanish Oxi for whites only, the one that comes in a white container, not the pink one.

think cold salty water only works if you get it before dried?

how would sunlight work?

would bleach not turn it yellow tingey??

have any of these actually worked?

Vanish double action spray stuff or soak in their powder for whites oxy stuff - we are always having to get blood out of things due to DD being prone to nosebleeds and normally catching it in her t shirts as we have threatened her with death if she gets blood on her bedroom carpet!

MA - Sunlight seems to work on certain stains by 'bleaching' them out, I have tried it on a few different things with success, (thankfully!) not had to try it on blood though. Can't hurt to try...
