I'm currently making a little white dress for a girl and when its done she is going to look adorable! While pinning in the zip I accidentally forced the pin too hard and it went straight through into my finger. Next thing you know there's a big red splodge on my little white dress.
But there's no reason to panic if you deal with it straight away. There's no need to try stain removers or soapy water, all you need is your own saliva.
Apparently there's something in your saliva that helps to dissolve your own blood! I don't know the science, all I know is that it really works!
- Take some cotton thread and cut a length off.
- Scrunch the thread up a bit, put it in your mouth and chew it around a little.
- Now retrieve your newly salivated bundle of thread and dab it on the stain.
- Keep dabbing until the blood has disappeared.
Give it a try the next time your fingers feel the wrath of the pin and don't panic, your garment can be saved!
