Blood from mattress? This way you can easily remove a blood stain from a mattress!

Help a bloodstain on your new mattress. That’s annoying! Especially because almost all mattresses are white. A red blood stain on your white mattress is very noticeable. Old blood stains in particular have such a dirty brown color and therefore quickly give the impression that your mattress has long been due for replacement. Fortunately, there are plenty of grandmothers who have shared their years of knowledge with washing clothes and mattress covers. This has enabled us to collect the necessary knowledge to help you remove blood from the mattress.

Cleaning a Mattress with Blood Stain

A bloodstain in your mattress is something that can easily happen. A small wound that you have not noticed or a leakage during menstruation are accidents that you can sometimes not prevent. Still, these are nasty accidents. Most people don’t know how to get blood out of your mattress. If your first reaction is to immediately throw the mattress cover in the washing machine and wash it at 60 degrees, it is good that you read this article. Washing with a washing machine is usually done automatically at 40 degrees or even more. This is exactly what you should not do if you want to clean your mattress from blood stains. By using warm or lukewarm water, the proteins in the blood clot and you can hardly get the stains out. Often the blood stains also become brownish and larger when you wash with warm water.

How do you get blood out of a mattress?

We now know that if you want to get blood stains out of your mattress, you don’t immediately throw the cover in the washing machine and wash it as hot as possible. But then what?

  • If you want to get blood out of your mattress, you always use cold water! Especially if the stain is new, you can solve a large part of the problem by soaking the stain in cold water. If this is not enough, you can then throw the mattress cover in the washing machine and wash it with a cold program!
  • If the blood stain is fresh and therefore still wet with blood, you can start by sprinkling the area with salt and letting it soak in for a while. This draws the still moist blood from your mattress into the salt. You can then vacuum the salt off the mattress with a vacuum cleaner. An additional tip is to dilute salt with a little water to a kind of paste and rub it over the blood stain with a cloth. The paste therefore acts as a kind of absorbent scouring sponge.
  • A common tip to get blood out of your mattress is to soak the stain for a few hours in cold water containing baking soda. Then wash the cover on a cold program to wash out the baking soda.
  • Dissolve aspirins in cold water to remove blood stains. This is also a frequently mentioned piece of advice among grandma’s tips for cleaning blood from the mattress.
  • Furthermore, the internet is full of tips to remove blood stains with milk or saliva. We have not tried this ourselves and find it somehow illogical. Research shows that breast milk and saliva help blood to clot. This is exactly what you don’t want if you want to clean the mattress from blood. Probably that the effect of cow’s milk has the opposite effect. However, we cannot find any substantiation for this.
