How to Get Blood Out of Your Gi

If you do a search on how to get blood out of clothing, you will come up with tons of methods, but the simplest is the most effective. The key to getting blood out of your gi, or any other cloth, is hydrogen peroxide and cold water. Here are the simple steps:

  1. Pour peroxide on any blood stains you see. The earlier you do this after the blood gets on the gi, the easier the blood will come off. The peroxide will fizz up and you will see it already starting to lift the stain.
  2. If you aren’t going to wash it right away a little stain spray will help prevent the stain from setting.
  3. When you are ready to wash make sure you set your washer to COLD water. Hot water will set the blood into the fabric. When the gi comes out of the wash make sure all the blood is gone before putting it in the dryer because heat will set the stain.
  4. If there are still traces of blood repeat the process. If the stains were still there it is probably because either the stain wasn’t blood, it was an old set in stain, or you missed that spot with the peroxide. Blood really doesn’t stand a chance against peroxide.
