Have a customer call today that has white wool carpet and she wants me to attempt to remove some blood drops on it. Spots will be about 48hrs old. I didnt promise any miracles but just curious how some of you would go at it.

I am not a big "blood guy" :confused: but say it is surface level.

Vac, molecular modifier sprayed and groomed in, biobreak, agitate, hwe. Microban area. Groom.

Obviously a lower pH wool specific product is optimal, just what I would do.

Scott Warrington will tell you to use the Bridgepoint wool products. He would be right. :oops:

Stain magic for wool.
Rinse with an acid

Doesn't stain magic on relatively fresh blood seem like overkill before normal cleaning with spotting hasn't worked?

You may better than I would, I don't recall ever seeing significant blood on white wool.

Just keep it simple. Stain magic for wool, but use a color stabilizer first. Also made by stain magic. Extract it first if you really want to. Just cleaned some the other day on wool. Came out 100%

If the blood is a "few drops" and mostly on the surface it will come out with a cleaner for wool like Wool Perfect.

If the blood is down into the carpet, flush with cool water. This will get a lot of it out.
Weak hydrogen peroxide can be used. Nothing stronger than the 3% you get in a brown pint bottle at the drug store. You can also use StainZONE diluted with distilled water or Stain Magic for Wool.
