If you've washed it in warm water then you will have fixed the stain and made it very difficult to shift. You should soak blood stains in cold water for as long as you can, then wash as normal.

You could try something like Stain Devils, that might help.

Hand wash in cold water with old fashioned bath soap. (It's made from animal or vegetable fat.) Not the shower gel type stuff. (this is a detergent made from heaven knows what.)

soak in biological detergent at the warmest temp the fabric will stand.

I put in washer with detergent, start it running. switch off after 10 mins, and leave for at least 2 hrs (overnight if poss). Switch on again and let the machine complete it's cycle.

If that doesn't get it out, nothing will.
