Blood on recliner help

DH got blood on the arm of his recliner. It is a medium green fabric. Any ideas on cleaning it? I've had luck with peroxide before on other fabrics, but i'm nervous about using it on the chair.

Id spot test the peroxide on the recliner.

Oxiclean would be another possibility, but spot test it first, too.

If it has not been there long, I would try cold water and a little dishwashing soap. Usually, that will do it. But make sure to use cold water and not hot. Hot sets the stain. You may have to rub a bit, but it should come out. If it is set in, I would try Oxiclean. Good luck!

Folex is amazing at getting things out of fabric. I’ve used it with all sorts of stains with great results.

I agree with spot checking it first. Good luck.
