Sanguine stress

Common knowledge item: blood stains are difficult to get out.

If you treat the stain while it is still fresh, there are things you can do.

HowStuffWorks breaks stain removal down by material, describing how different fibers will react to various substances. Water and ammonia are mentioned the most, but a quick google search will give other options (like dishwashing soap, salt, peroxide, etc.,) if cold water doesn't do the trick. The most important thing to keep in mind is that blood is a protein stain, which means that hot or warm water will set the stain even more. So, use cold water immediately and all should be well.
