From the looks of it they have been there forever, since they are completely brown at this point. How do I get them out? The washing machine obviously didn't help.

Anybody dealt with a similar situation? Google gives a lot of results. Want to know which one is best from someone's personal experience so I don't have to go running for industrial detergent or something.

Honestly, the best way to get rid of bloodstains is to get a new pillowcase.

I any case, if the blood has been there long enough to turn brown, the pillowcase is old enough that you need to replace it anyway, based on how old the pillowcase itself is.

It's disconcerting that your first reaction to seeing bloodstains on your pillowcase isn't "HOW DID THESE GET THERE" but "HOW DO I GET THEM OUT".

Anyway, just give it a thorough wash. If it doesn't come out, you just have to deal with it.

If they're really old and soaked in, it's probably less hassle just to get new pillowcases as Lindale says, they're cheap enough. Putting it in a bowl of warm salt water and washing up liquid, letting it soak for a while then scrubbing the crap out of it is supposed to be quite effective, though.

Get BiCarb of Soda, Washing up liquid, a scoop of biological washing powder and some yeast. Put it all in a bowl of lukewarm (not boiling) water, and leave the pillowcase to soak for an hour.

Spoiler: Show

After an hour, if the bloodstain is not lifted, set fire to the pillowcase.

Then, buy a new pillowcase.

Well excuse you, Phoenix Wright! Somebody can't have a little aneurysm while they sleep? Or more plausibly, especially in my case, the bursting of a massive, grotesque and excruciatingly painful whitehead on my cheek or something which releases a rather large amount of blood and some other bodily fluid.

It occurs less often now but I'd get these nearly every other day during my teenage years and during recent times when I lived in a dusty and dirty environment. Probably handy to know how to clean the pillowcase in case something like that starts occurring again. Can't just spend all my money on new pillowcases.
