How to get blood out of clothes

To start with, it is very important to act immediately upon a blood stain. If you wait, it is already penetrated deep into the fabric and very hard to get rid of. Rinsing with cold water can already help a bunch.

Do not use hot water, as this has an effect on the blood structure. Furthermore, it is very important not to rub, as this will also help the blood penetrate the structure of the fabric.
