    Spit workd on anyone's blood. My husband bled all over his shirt at church and I used my spit to fix it. A spot over 1" across became all but invisible. I admit it took a lot of spit and a little finger scrubbing, but it worked. Also, my dog bled a little on me after a shot and it came out, same way. I think saliva digests the proteins in any blood. It is yucky, but it sure is handy when there is nothing else.

    I agree with Ruth. Hydrogen Peroxide is the best. As a RN, I often get some blood on my uniform. I use hydrogen peroxide right before the wash, and I've never had it fail me yet. Sara

    You did a good job explaining...and I'm not the teacher...yet! LOL. It does make sense. I knew your saliva contains enzymes and obviously your blood contains proteins and that enzymes break down proteins, I just never...I guess, realized that it would get a blood stain out of something.

    my friend uses the new eraser magic the company that makes me. clean. she just slightly dampens the sponge and wipes lightly. she said it works well for pencile markings. I haven't tried it.
