I picked up my dress today and I was trying it on at my house, my mom was helping and one of the dresses clasps cut her finger and she got a bit of blood on the back of my dress. Now im not freaking out because I really doubt someone is gonna stare at my dress in the upper back of it. But how can I get rid of the stain?

Idk what kind of material it is, but hydrogen peroxide is my favorite to get blood out of things

Saline solution/salt water solution. Salt breaks up/lifts blood out. Use a q-tip dipped in either the saline or salt water. Dab, don’t rub.

I am so sorry. I would be freaking out; depending on if it can be seen at all or not. I am sure your mom feels really bad.
Blood is really hard to get out of even everyday fabric. For your wedding gown, I would take it to the cleaners. If it can be gotten out, they will know how.

I’ve used milk before (protein breaks down the protein), but it may be tough depending on what kind of material you’re working with. And, if you can’t rinse the milk out it may get a little smelly, yuck. Good luck!!

Thanks ladies! My mom did feel bad but I let her know that it doesnt matter to me. The important thing is I have her by my side on this special day 🙂

If she soaks white thread in her mouth and rolls it over the stain it will pull it out. My mom used to do this all the time. Her saliva will break down her blood, it has to be hers.

@tksjewelry: I’ve never heard of ones own saliva breaking down ones own blood for stain lifting purposes. Is it really the saliva or just that any liquid is touching the blood so quickly?

I’d agree with the cleaners. I’d at least call and ask for their suggestion before trying anything, they can probably tell you what won’t work for sure.
And kudos to you for being so calm and understanding about the whole situation, that would be a real stress on both of you!
