Best way to get blood out of seatbelt?

It's not as bad as it sounds. Took my German Shepherd to the vet to have some tubes removed, vet said just bandage him up when I got home. By the time we made it back, he'd bled a little in the backseat of my truck. Simple Green took care of the blood on the leather seat, but didnt do anything for the seatbelt.

Does anything remove it without discoloring the cloth, or do I just need to replace it? I'm leaning toward replacing it, but I hate to do that if I can just clean it.

Peroxide is real good for getting out blood. Not sure if it will discolor or not.

Pressure washer. Take the belt out of the truck and set it up so you don't have to chase it and does not destroy what you have it mounted on. Use cold water.

The peroxide may alter the color of the dye, so test on a hidden place first.

If you do wood work oxolic acid will take the brown color after it is fully set, it also affects some colors.

If you want to do it the old way with a scrub brush and cool water with 1/2 teaspoon of salt to 8 oz water.

Salt water works same day some times next day.
Pressure washer works 2-3 days, but often after the next day you have to hit it and let it soak 3-4 times
Acid - oxolic and vinigar will take the color of the blood even when the clear remains in the weave but may change the color on the nylon dye.
Peroxide will eat the blood, the foam but it will oxidise the nylon. Same as sun exposure.

Sorry to be so long. I didnt have the chance to try cleaning it until about four or five days later.

I used peroxide and cold running water. I'd let the peroxide set for a couple of seconds and start to foam, then rinse it and do it again. It worked great.

Thanks!
