How To Remove Blood Stains

Wow, I never imagined I'd be writing that post title. I suddenly feel like a Soprano.

Recently, our dog was ill and got blood on our white carpet. Happy days have since returned and he's fine.

Vinegar with water is an excellent all around stain remover, but it did not remove the blood stain.

After doing research, we poured household salt (or sea salt) directly onto the bloody area. The salt completely absorbed the stain. We then vacuumed up the salt and voila, the stain was gone. As an FYI, the stain should be wet, if it's not simply pour cold water on it first. It worked for us.
