LAUNDRY question, oh so fun :P

kinda embarrasing, but I was wearing white shorts today, and I was at a dance and it was really dark and It ended early so I'm home and I'm the only one up and my all white shorts are stained... ok yes with blood :P

Shoudl I just toss em or try bleach? they are soaking in cold water.

i think you should try soaking them in cold water. leave that overnight, then rinse them out tomorrow, and wash them. bleach might not be a bad idea.

Have you tried hydrogen peroxide? It REALLY works wonders on blood stains.

I 2nd hydrogen peroxide
also any stain remover that has "oxy" on it works great as well.
Bleach works nicely. Hot water as well.

I worked as a vet assistant for a couple years. Needless to say, I had occasions when I was involved in a literal blood bath. Luckily, I remembered that we used hydrogen peroxide to clean blood off patients and I now use it on any blood stain.

Peroxide definitely helps. I've got two boys and Shout Advanced is a lifesaver for clothes.
