Ivory is a bar soap made by Proctor & Gamble. It is well-known for the fact that it floats in water.

Are you asking whether Ivory can remove bloodstains? If so, cold water and many types of soaps and detergents can get bloodstains out of cloth. I'm not aware that Ivory has any special properties in this area, but someone else might know more.

Blood stain removal:



Human and animal blood,raw meats prepared on a marble counterrop can cause blood staining.


Blood contains salts and proteins,If cleaned while still fresh it will usually not stain.If allowed to dry blood stains can be very difficult to remove.


1.Clean area thoroughly with cold water and a mild detergent(Ivory Soap works well).

2.Prepare a solution of 50% household ammonia and water.Apply this solution and allow to sit for several minutes. Gently scrub the area and rinse with cold clear water.

3.If stain is still present poultice with a powder like diatomous earth and ammonia.
