Grab your powder quickly and just make a paste with water. Apply a nice layer on top of the stain. Even if someone sees this, it won’t look bad as the blood, plus you get it cleaned as soon as it dries off. You can substitute the powder with cornstarch too if it’s available.

Of course, it’s not a permanent solution but it will get you out of an embarrassing moment. Keep some neutral colored tape in your drawer always, if the stain is really small, put tape on it and you can even blend some of your makeup or powder over it to match the color of the sheet. If it’s white, translucent or talcum powder does the trick. Don’t forget to wash afterward though.
