While is science class many moons a go, I was told to wash clothes with blood stains in tepid water. It has something to do with the coagulant within the blood. Cold water sets it and warm water dissolves it. The trick is, to have it just warmer than cold and not scorching hot. Worked so far.
Wash straight away in cold water. Warm will set the blood in place.
I agree with Rachael. Wash them in cold water.
In medical school it was not unusual to get blood stains on our coats. We used to use Hydrogen peroxide to get it out, works best on whites as its a bleach.
For home use, I feel vanish works best for me.
Baby wipes, when the blood has not set, with cold water after.
OOOPS!! Sorry I did press twice this time!

Agree, cold water. Otherwise bleach or napisan for whites.
Cold water straight away works for me.
I've always put straight into cold water to dissolve and release the stain from the cloth, the rub on Sard Wonder Soap. Works a treat!

Salt dissolved in cold water and give it a rub and let it soak. Always works.
Napisan. But I soak everything in Napisan....

Soak in cold water, ASAP.
Nowadays, there're so many good 'helpers' like Napisan etc etc etc.
Once the 'soaking's' done, wash as normal, in cold water.
Cold water rinse immediately .Wash normally in machine . If any stain remains soak in a nappy soak and back into machine.
When I was a vet nurse we used bleach straight from the bottle on blood stain while wearing our uniform. I don't know how the fabric stood up to it but it is not a good look to greet people with a blood stained uniform.
Wet stain with cold water then rub with Sard wonder soap. Soak in cold water and check progress of removal. You may have to soap again but it does work.
I tend to use stain remover, then scrub harshly.
