Getting your sheets stained by period blood is frustrating enough, but it’s even worse if the blood seeps through to your pillow.
Nobody likes getting up in the morning and finding that they’ve bled through all the layers under them.
You can completely get rid of tarnish with a bit of effort and some readily available homemade materials.
The blood stain must be treated as quickly as possible
Blood stains should be treated as soon as they are observed so that they can be completely removed. They are not only unsightly, but also embarrassing. As with other spots and spills, these can spread germs and, as a result, decrease the life expectancy as well as quality of your cushion.
In addition to having a very easy-to-remove, machine washable mattress cover, Layla Sleep mattresses also come with a detachable mattress cover.
Many of the same methods can be used to remove blood stains from a cushion, with the exception that you don’t use as much water. Be careful not to soak the cushion as it will take it a long time to dry. Wear moistened clothes. In addition to damaging the cushion, excessive water can also propagate mold and microorganisms.
With a little assistance from your kitchen
Dab the blood stains with a towel soaked with cold water. Make sure to use cold water since it dissolves the blood, while warm water would certainly prepare the blood, causing it to become stuck to the fabric.
You can get some help from some items in your kitchen’s cupboard:
- You can use meat tenderizers not only to get rid of blood spots on your steaks but also to tenderize them. Make a paste from some meat tenderizer and water and also massage it into the cushion. Remove with a cloth soaked in cold water after letting it sit for an hour.
- Put some hydrogen peroxide on the tarnish and let it bubble. Dab at it with a damp towel. Repeat as necessary.
- Make a paste of baking soda and cold water, apply to the stain, and let it sit for 30 minutes. Wipe it off with a damp cloth.
- Mix baking soda and hydrogen peroxide and apply the mixture to the discoloration. Leave it to rest, then wipe it clean with a damp cloth.
Allow the mattress to air dry completely after you have treated the stain. If necessary, use a follower to aid it in drying more quickly, or if it is cold inside.
Since the tarnish is out, you can kick back!
