How do you get blood out of a car seat?

How do you get blood out of a car seat? Don't worry, it's nothing illegal! Our dog cut his foot the other day, and we had to bring him to the vet. He's fine, but he left some blood on the seats.

I’m sorry your dog got hurt, but I’m glad he’s alright! Blood is notoriously hard to clean, but you can actually get the stain out of your car seat using hydrogen peroxide! Follow these steps to make it easy:
  • Dampen the blood-stained area with a 3% hydrogen peroxide solution.
  • Let it sit for about 30 seconds at most. If you let it sit for too long, the hydrogen peroxide could damage the fabric.
  • After 30 seconds, dab the area with a clean, dry cloth.
  • Repeat the dampening and drying steps until the stain disappears.
  • Once the stain is gone, rinse the seat with a wet cloth to stop the hydrogen peroxide from damaging the seats.
While this process will usually work, you should only use hydrogen peroxide as a last resort. Even if you don’t leave it for too long, it can sometimes weaken and even bleach your seats. If you’d like a risk-free solution, consider bringing your car to a professional cleaner.
