The solution to when a nose and a head collide on new carpet

My nose collided with Ana’s head resulting in a bloody nose (Ana’s head was just fine).  Mum managed to get me onto bathroom tiles pretty quickly (more worried about my nose, than the carpet, of course, ahem) but there were still a few good patches of blood on the carpet.  Mum posted the dilemma online to the ladies who know everything (the neighbourhood group) and this was one of the methods suggested:

But it has to be from the person whose blood it is, apparently, so the clean up was up to me.

    Hmm unconventional. .. I like it.

      The jury is still out…. the theory is the enzymes in spit are supposed to break it down. Although Mum got the worst of it out with cold water.

    It may work, but do you want to train Rafa in this method. (And interesting to note the cloth was in his left hand in the second video).

      I haven’t worked out yet that when I spit there’s actually meant to be something coming out. Hence why I still use non fluoride toothpaste since I swallow the lot! And yes, I do use both hands quite frequently (good spotting!) but I do have a preference for the right.

        If the Houston water is not fluoridated, you should probably use fluoride toothpaste at least some of the time – it works at least in part because kids do swallow it!!

    Spit is highly underrated as a cleaning agent 🙂 – blood, dirt on your shoes (use a tissue to apply) and Mum’s spit is great for getting breakfast off your face if you got out of the door without applying a flannel. Ask Great-Grandma June – the only other cleaning agent she bought was Chemico – very sandpapery and not good for any of the above!

    Water is pretty good as long as it is taken in the right spirit. After a few glasses you can longer see the blood or feel the pain!
