Step 1

Wet a cloth and blot it on the stain to moisten it.

Step 2

Apply a cleaner that contains enzymes to the stain. Quick'n Brite and Zout are two examples of cleaners that contain enzymes.

Step 3

Rub a toothbrush in a circular motion over the stain, so the cleaner can penetrate the couch's fabric.

Step 4

Wipe away any blood that is lifted out with a clean towel.

Step 5

Wash off the stain remover by rubbing a damp cloth on the area. Let the moisture air dry.

Step 6

Repeat this process if necessary.
