By: Editors of Consumer Guide  | 


Follow these steps to remove blood stains from synthetic carpet, wool carpet or foam rubber:

  • Mix 1 teaspoon of a mild, non-alkali detergent with 1/2 pint of lukewarm water.
  • Add a small amount to the stain and blot the liquid. Do not force the stain further into the fibers.
  • Continue blotting until you can't remove the stain any longer. 
  • If stain remains, add 1 tablespoon ammonia to 1 cup water (do not use on wool), sponge stain and blot liquid.
  • Continue until you cannot remove the stain.
  • Place an absorbent pad over the damp area and weigh it down.
  • When you cannot draw out more liquid, remove the pad and allow it to air-dry thoroughly.
