This is the easiest and most commonly practiced technique to get rid of the stains. As soon as you see your cloth is damped with blood, put that under running water and allow the residual blood to pass. Hot water contributes the proteins to set the stain into the fabric.

It is advised not to let hydrogen peroxide stay in your fabric for long durations as it has bleaching agents and can fade the color.
