1. Blood: soak the cloth in a mixture of cold water and salt, that should remove majority if not all of the stain. If it is a stubborn one, spot treat with hydrogen peroxide.
2. Bodily fluid: first rinse with room temperature water, then soak in a mixture of cold water and baking soda for a few minutes. Launder the cloth with detergent as normal after soaking.
