How does one get blood out of linen trousers? Any good products you know of?

Firstly, I never hand wash anything.

For blood I would use Ace Bleach.

I have 3 pairs of linen trousers - all of which go through the wash at 30 and are fine.
Soak them in cold water overnight and the majority of blood will come out then wash them in your machine.....

cold water will remove it. Just soak before washing always works for me

Will salt not 'fix' the stain Fio? My Mum always shouted at me if I used salt on stuff, I'm probably wrong though (or she was!)

How do we know they're white? You're probably right Fio, but plain water works anyway.
