We are looking for a simple cleaner for dealing with minor blood cleanups. For instance, melamine and laminate cuts leaving streaks of blood on parts. Could we get by with a diluted bleach solution? And if so, what concentration of bleach to water, or full strength? Or is there a readily available cleaner? I see Clorox makes a Formula 409 germicide.

From contributor J:
A few short years ago I was a Service Engineer for Ortho Clinical Diagnostics. We built/serviced blood analyzers for hospitals/clinics. Dealing with blood specimens required special care and attention. If my memory serves me correctly, and I think it does, a 10% mixture of bleach-90% water was a very satisfactory way of cleaning anything that had been covered with a blood specimen. Alcohol and water was also frequently used.
