We have all been there! Some day or the other, we have all woken up to period stains showing up on the bedsheet, pyjamas, spotted them on the panties, jeans, just everywhere.
Well, period stains are a part and parcel of menstruation. We all hate it but can't really do much about it. There are days when the blood flow can get really heavy, leaving your clothes with stains.
However, it is no big deal! Don't worry about the stains, they can go away if you use the right cleaning technique. Here are some quick hacks and easy tips which will help you get rid of the blood stains.
Wash Under Cold Water
The easiest way to get rid of the blood stain is by washing it under cold water. This works best for clothes that are lightweight like your underwear or shorts. Hold the stained area under running cold water. It will help you wash out the blood stain entirely. If the stain has got dry then it may take a little time.
Use Lemon Juice
Do you know, lemon juice (lemon peel uses) can help you remove the period stains? Rub some lemon juice on the stain area and let it dry naturally. Make sure you use this hack for light coloured clothes only as you may lose the colour for dark clothes.
Rub A Soap
I recently tried this trick and it worked for me. First, I used a tissue dipped in cold water to rub off the blood stain from the bedsheet. When the stain got lighter, I took a soap bar and gently rubbed it over the sheet. I then used a hairdryer to dry off the stain. It really works!
Use White Vinegar
White vinegar is a common kitchen item that can help in removing the blood stain. Pour some white vinegar directly on the blood stain. Let it sit for 10-15 minutes and then gently rub the stain with a towel. If the blood stain is stubborn, you can repeat the step.
