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.
