How to Get Blood Out of Car Seat

November 4, 2023

When a blood stain is found on your car seat, it can be difficult to remove and can leave the interior of the vehicle looking dirty. Whether the bloodstain is from an accident or someone in your family gets sick, it’s essential to remove as much of the stain as possible to keep the upholstery in your car clean and free of germs. This article will provide you with a few methods for how to get blood out of car seat that should work on most fabrics.

The first step is to locate the bloodstain and make sure that it is still wet. This will make it easier to get rid of the stain. If the stain has already dried, it will be more difficult to get rid of. Once you’ve located the bloodstain, blot it with a clean white cloth or paper towel. You want to blot the cloth until it is completely saturated. Don’t massage the bloodstain, as this can push the blood deeper into the upholstery fabric.

Next, dribble hydrogen peroxide over the bloodstain. Don’t oversaturate the area, but do try to work it in with your fingers as it sizzles on top of the stain. The acidity in the hydrogen peroxide will break down the fibrin that is holding the bloodstain on your car upholstery and should help lift it. If you’d prefer not to use hydrogen peroxide, a solution of one cup of cool water and two teaspoons of salt will also work. This can be put into a spray bottle for easy application, or you can dampen a clean white cloth with the mixture and blot the stain.
