How To Get Blood Out Of Fabric (Video)
This video is super short because it’s a quick and dirty tip. (Actually, I guess it’s a CLEAN tip!)
Don’t ask me why, but your own saliva will get your own blood out of fabric. So if you prick your finger when pinning or hand-sewing, or if you snip your hand when cutting, don’t worry if you get a little bit of blood on your fabric. To get blood out of fabric, give it a little spit. (How do I spell the spitting sound effect?? *Insert that here!* LOL!)
Any chemists out there who can explain why this works? I’m assuming it’s science… and not fairy magic.
I’m here with sewing fan Nadia Rampersad and she has a fantastic tip if you’re working with white or light colored fabrics.
If you accidently get some blood on your fabric, by poking your hand or cutting yourself accidently, don’t panic. A little dab of your saliva will remove it right away.
Yeah. It sounds gross, but your own blood – you know nothing gets out your own blood like your own saliva. So, weird tip, but amazing tip. Thanks, Nadia.
