The blood on this mattress was dry. If you have fresh blood, blot it first with a damp cloth (so you don’t spread it). Then treat what’s left with our magic solution. It does take some work (you may have to treat the stain more than once) but it’s cheap and effective!!
We do want to point out that for large amounts of blood, you may just have to get a new mattress (link to our review of what Janet considers the best mattress for the money).
We know the secret, now you can too…
After these tests, we wonder if people actually tried the solutions they recommend online because only one worked very well!
