How can I get blood out of my car upholstery?

My girlfriend fell and cut herself pretty badly while skateboarding. I drove her to the hospital and some blood got on my car’s back seats. How can I get the blood out of my car upholstery?

I’m sorry to hear about your girlfriend; I hope she’s doing better!
To get rid of the blood on your car’s seats:
  • Start by dabbing the stain with a wet cloth or paper towel. The goal here is to remove as much of the initial stain as possible.
  • Mix 2 teaspoons of salt with 1 cup of cold water in a spray bottle. Use cold water to prevent the stain from setting permanently.
  • Spray the solution on the stain. Start at the edges and work your way to the center of the stain. Doing so will prevent it from spreading.
  • Dry the area with a clean towel and repeat as necessary if the stain remains. Be sure to allow your seats adequate time to dry to avoid mold or mildew.
If you’ve tried this method twice and the stain is still present, you may have a permanent stain or need to visit a car detailer for a professional cleaning.
While you wait for your seats to dry, now might be the perfect time to review your car insurance. If you feel that you could be paying too much, underinsured, or just unsatisfied with your service, the Jerry app can help.
