i don't know if this belongs here but i don't know where else to put this...
so this band i adore made those t-shirts with the band's name written in their blood on it.
now of course i want to wear it but i'm worried that if i wash it, the blood will come off. even if i wash it cold.
does anybody have any ideas on what i could do to "seal" the blood? or any experience with blood stains on t-shirts?

I don't think washing it cold would help as that's what you're always told to get blood stains out.  I think hot water and hot heat in the dryer would be more likely to set the stain in.  Or maybe just dampening it and putting it in the dryer.   If it's something you love, it would probably be best not to wash it.  But you could try washing it w/out soap and seeing if that'll get the stain to set in.  Maybe try it out on another shirt before you accidentally ruin this one.

Good luck!
