How To Remove Blood Stains From A Mattress Using Ammonia

You can use an ammonia solution to remove blood stains from a mattress.  Although this method is quite effective, it is not recommended as the ammonia can damage the fibres in a mattress.

What you will need

  • Water
  • Salt
  • Ammonia
  • Cotton Balls

Make the ammonia solution

Mix 1 tablespoon of ammonia with 240ml water.


  1. Begin by moistening the stained area with a small amount of cold water.
  2. Cover the stain with salt and allow it to set for up to 2 hours or until it dries completely.
  3. Scrape away the salt layer
  4. Apply the ammonia solution to the area using a cotton ball.
  5. Blot the area with a clean cloth, working from the outside in to remove the stain along with as much of the ammonia solution as possible.
  6. Repeat steps 4-5 as necessary.
  7. As soon as the stain is removed completely (or removed enough that it is not noticeable), clean the entire area with a wet/dry vacuum or a steam vac. If possible, clean with a mild soap and cold water.


It is essential to remove the ammonia from the mattress to avoid damage to the fibres.
