Top tip

Simple brand 'Refreshing Shower Gel' makes an excellent remover for bio-stains. I discovered this by accident when I left a huge blood spot on a Premier Inn sheet, and had nothing else to clean it up with. I rubbed it in while the blood was still wet and then sponged it off, and it completely bleached out the stain. Since then I've found that it also gets crap off carpets. Thumbs up!

This also applies to Sanex hypoallergenic shower gel - indeed, probably to all clear shower gel.

Pineapple juice is also good for blood stains - I theorise because it contains bromelin which breaks down proteins.
