I was stitching with some friends the other day. Yes, I felt the poke, but didn't bother to look. I should have, because it drew blood. Yes, I bled on the white quilt. $#!@ I've always heard it told to spit on a blood stain. I couldn't bring myself to try that. My first thought was to use cold water, but one friend said it might just cause the spot to run. Good point. Another friend then said to use peroxide. I've used peroxide on stains before, but it can bleach out colors, so you have to use it carefully. Considering the fabric is white, I gave it a try. Just a little dab took the stain out like magic. I rinsed the spot well with cold water. Now that the spot is dry, it's impossible to tell where the blood was.
