    I pre-treat it with a little detergent and wash it right away. Always comes right off the gi.

    the easiest way to get blood out of anything and EVERYTHING -

    soak the fabric in ice cold water to break down the proteins in the blood. after a minute or so take a rag and start to rub it out. it will start coming out. once it does then take it out of the water and RUN cold water over it while dabbing and rubbing the clean part of the rag on it. within a few minutes, no blood.

    works like a charm

    man i guess im lucky, i have a white fuji a2 and have been rolling in it for a year. i've had that thing soaked with blood many times and all i do when i get home is throw it in the wash (within 30 mins of getting off the mat) i use arm&hammer detergent that has oxy clean in it. My is the same color as it was when new, maybe switch detergents?
