I always keep a few dark red washcloths handy for minor injuries. Whenever my kids get a bad cut, I use one to stop the bleeding. Because of the dark color, the blood doesn't show up easily and the kids don't freak out as much. Works like a charm!
If you get a chance, check out my "Mess of the Day" posts. Soon I will launch a "Mess of the Month" meme and giveaway. I will post a Mr. Linky, and you all can publish pics of the messes that YOUR little darlings have made. I'll pick a winner and send them a gift!
