Question: Are there additives/chemicals that can be added to a bulk wash to remove bloodstains?
Answer: Enzymes are very effective in removing bloodstains and are generally safe on both colored linens and whites. Setting up a formula for a long wash or even a soak is the most effective treatment. Chlorine bleach will also remove bloodstains, but caution should be used with the types of linen that it is used on.

A Gruesome Laundry Surprise
PHOENIX, Ariz. — A body in a bin was discovered by employees at a Sodexo commercial laundry facility. The body arrived on a delivery truck from medical facilities in Tucson. Team members who were unloading the bins first noticed blood on the sheets then discovered the body in one of the bins. The man, a transient, had previously slept in the laundry-bag area near the Tucson medical facility. It is believed that the man either died from a medical condition or was suffocated by the plastic bags. The body showed no signs of trauma or foul play.
