How To Remove Blood Stains From Carpet With Hydrogen Peroxide

For stubborn carpet stains, hydrogen peroxide is a very effective stain remover.  However this method should only be used on colourfast carpets.

What You Will Need

  • Hydrogen Peroxide 3%
  • Cold Water
  • Tissues or Paper Towels
  • Clean Cloth


  1. Moisten the ends of the fabric with hydrogen peroxide 3%.
  2. Let stand for 1 hour.
  3. Blot the carpet with a clean cloth.
  4. Rinse the area with clean water.
  5. Place a pad of paper towels or tissues over the area and place a brick, heavy book or a similar object on top.  This should absorb any excess moisture out of the carpet.
  6. Repeat until carpet is stain free.


  • You should always test this method on a small discrete part of the carpet first, to ensure that the material is not damaged.
  • Do not use any chlorine bleach products with this method, as mixing with hydrogen peroxide can create a poisonous gas.
  • Never scrub a blood stain, always use a blotting motion.
  • Do not use hot water. This will only help to set the stain.
