How to Remove Blood Stain From Car Seat

March 10, 2024

A clean car interior is essential to the overall look of your vehicle. However, the reality is that even a carefully tended interior can be subject to spills and accidents. Blood stains, in particular, are a challenge for any upholstery fabric. These stains must be dealt with as quickly as possible in order to avoid permanent damage and discoloration. Fortunately, there are several effective ways to remove blood stain from your car seat.

First, blot the area of the stained upholstery with a cloth or paper towel. Avoid rubbing the stain, as this will only spread the blood and push it deeper into the fabric. Change the cloth/paper towel frequently to prevent the blood from bleeding through the fabric into the seat cushion or backboard.

Next, spray the affected area with a cleaning solution. This should be a commercially available stain remover designed for upholstery, such as Puracy Stain Remover. Allow the cleaner to sit for approximately 30 minutes. This will give the cleaner time to penetrate and break down the blood stain.

After the wait, blot the affected area with a cloth that has been thoroughly moistened with cold water. This will rinse the cleaned area and remove any remaining cleaning solution or paste. Be sure to rinse thoroughly, as leaving behind any residue can discolor or damage the upholstery. If needed, re-apply the cleaning solution and repeat the spraying, scrubbing and blotting process until the blood stain is fully removed from the upholstery.
