    Grandma's Spot Remover, which comes in small little bottle at fabric and quilt shops.

    I use this as well and I agree it works wonders. I had stuck my finger with a pin and bled on my sewing table cover. Sprayed the spots and it took absolutely every bit of blood out and left cloth looking like new.

    My mom was told by the man that owned a dry cleaners to use salt water for a soak. It was to remeove a lot of dried blood from a jacket. I'm not sure if it worked, just remember that is what he told her. I have a quilt that my mother worked on with me, and she got a drop of blood on it. She made a joke saying she gave her bloodf so that I had something to always remember her by. tHAt small blood stain stayed on the quilt!

    old set blood stains are tough. Good luck How big is the stain? I have an old stain remover booklet and it says 2 tbsp. ammonia in 1 gal. water. Rinse real good. Maybe apply with q-tip. But this seems to be for fresh blood stains, I think.

    Hydrogen Peroxide should do it. Be sure to rinse the peroxide out.

    Oxyclean.... used it to get dry blood out of a tshirt that had been thru the washer and dryer many times with the blood on it.. Has to soak but it did the trick and wont harm the fabric.

    Peroxide on a q-tip would work. I received my grandmother's quilt and the batting is actual cotton picked from the farm and it is made from feed sacks. Hand-quilted with string. My grandparents were farmers in North Carolina and didn't have much money. I treasure the quilt and am trying to figure out a way to wash it. My mother told me "not" to wash it the regular way.
