i usually use detergent with color safe bleach in it. it gets rid of the blood and it'll help preserve the color on any patches you have on your gi.

I use a special stain detergent that I found at the store. its called "stain devils" made specifically for blood, rust, and milk. (pretty random combo of stains) but use it with a little hydrogen peroxide on a q-tip and apply directly to the stain but only to the stain otherwise it will turn a white gi yellow.

hydrogen peroxide works really good.

This is your best advice. I have a White USC Gameday Matt Barkley jersey that I got from the man himself and **** gets on it all the time. I use this exact technique. Works every time.

Ammonia works...and you don't have to worry about anything turning yellow.
