Hi all, a bit different this one, we have blood stains on a back seatbelt of our Patrol, the result of a blood nose from one of our little grandsons. Has anyone got any ideas on how to remove the stains, peroxide seems to be the big thing on Google BUT I'm a bit concerned it may weaken the belt.
Any suggestions would be appreciated......

Cheers

D

Try cold water.
Soak it for a while, scrub with brush and rinse
Works with clothes
Do NOT use hot water

Hi Dunworkin, I would suggest that you make up a bit of nappysan in a bucket , soak the stain for a while , and gently work at the stain with a nail brush ,that should remove the stain for you. Cheers, Lyn

Hi D,

Soak it in cool Tap water, and rub it between your hands. Don't use warm or hot water, that will only cook it in.

Cheers, Jerry.

G`day D,
Make a creamy past using cold water and Carb Soda, rub it in, rinse. Repeat if necessary.

Dunworkin - Be wary about use Peroxide or Napisan - both could possibly affect the seat belt colour.

Cold liquid is the go, anything hot sets the blood proteins and the stain will never come out.

This might sound suss - but it works, I've done it myself.

Hold a pad of 2 or 3 sheets of paper roll towel, or old bath towel, under the belt where the stain is, and spray well with Windex.
Scrub with a stiff nail brush and flush with cold water. Wipe dry. You'll be surprised at the result.

Dunworkin'

I agree with Ron. Please be very careful with using chemicals on your seatbelts.

Treat them like I treat my climbing equipment - both are safety devices and your life (or your grand kids lives) depend on them.

If you are going to use anything try a rope cleaning detergent and cold water. It is about $7 bucks a bottle (300ml or so) available from Mainpeak etc. It is neutral and doesn't effect the fibres. I also use it to clean my upholstery so it won't go to waste

If you want some to try member message me and I can drop some to you

Cheers

Thanks guys, I am wary of chemicals, I don't want to use anything that effects the strength of the belt.....

Try soaking the seatbelt in beer. After a while it won't care anymore.
