Spit

How often have you heard.....or said......"Don't bleed on the quilt."?   Think about all of the sharp tools that are used in the quilting process and you will realize that somewhere along the line, sometime.....you are bound to get blood on a quilt!!!   But, did you know that your own saliva wil remove your own blood from the fabric??  It's true.    Spit a little (clean saliva please......not M&M saliva or after drinking raspberry tea!!!) on the blood spot --- rub it in --- rinse with cool water --- repeat if necessary and watch the stain disappear!!!

This is something I have done (and am very glad it works) but haven't thought about in awhile.  Reading an article today made me realize that this has apparently been a well kept secret!!!   So....I'm telling all of you!

Happy Quilting,
Laurel
