    Yep, get a bowl with warm water and a bit of washing up liquid.

    Tsk. Elementary murder school says not to murder on the carpet.

    Used to be a ex carpet fitter. Nothing works better than white spirit.

    Tomorrow is a mystery
    But today is a gift
    That’s why it’s call the present

    Technically that would mean you're a carpet fitter currently. :p

    Thanks guys! I dampened it down which helped a bit, will get on the case properly tomorrow. Useless with stains!

    I've got some stain remover that comes in a yellow bottle called 1001 ultra. Never used it for blood but it seems to work well on everything else.

    The fastest way to remove blood stains is to use sodium percarbonate solution and hot water. Sodium percarbonate with oxidize the blood and that will remove the stain.
    Mix 1 ounce in hot water and apply to stain. Blot and reapply.
    If it has Oxy in the title it probably has sodium percarbonate, but you want it to be the first ingredient listed, otherwise it won't be a strong solution.
