Smaller Blood Stains
The blood stain you intend to blot out might be small, but that doesn’t necessarily mean it is any less difficult. In removing blood stain of any amount, you would need to consider several factors like what sort of surface the stain is on; porous or nonporous? If the blood has dried out or is it still fresh? These and several other concern must be addressed if you must efficiently blot out the offending stain.
