    Give the cape a washing in cold water with some dish washing detergent in laundry tube with a few cold water rinses.

    Skip the soap, just cold clear water will do. Soaps have enzymes in them that break down the cape, just like enzymes are suppose to do.

    How in the h#^@ did you get blood on it, you need to be more careful in the future.

    B Jones, shooting a deer is going to cause some bleeding, wouldn't you say? It seems kind of obvious that you are going to get some blood on the cape no matter how careful you are at times. What kind of answer was that?

    B Jones was being sarcastic. It is obvious that you are going to get blood on the skin and newbie07 should know this.
