Whatever gentle care for your luxious and soft silk sheets, some unexpected incident will also occur and what to do if some stains left on your silk bedding? Ways are provided for the special stains removing, one of the most common types is blood!
The earlier you treat it the easier it is to remove it. If it is still fresh, sponge the stain with cold water that has salt in it (1 teaspoon of salt per cup of water). Then rinse with clear water and repeat if necessary.
If the blood stain has set, still try the salted water method before trying anything else since it is the least harsh method of removing the stain from your luxious silk duvets. If it does not work, try making a paste out of meat tenderizer and applying it to the stain. Pat gently to work the paste in and then rinse. How does meat tenderizer work on blood stains? It breaks down the proteins in the blood which should release them from the fabric.
A rather unorthodox method recommended by one silk expert for removing dried blood is to use saliva. Put saliva on a Q-tip and dab at the stop until the blood disappears, using a fresh Q-tip for each application of the saliva. Rinse with water.
Of course, this is a folk way to remove the blood out of your silk bed linen, but why not have a try, it may effect better than you thought.
