Juice stains are extremely common. It happens to the best of us, right? But different juice stains shouldn’t be treated the same – after all, the main ingredient is different. A stain from cherry juice and a stain from mango juice can be removed by using completely different methods – and the way you remove cherry juice won’t work on the mango one!
Today, I wanted to talk about apple juice and what to do when you spill it on your favourite shirt, your carpet, or even your couch.
How to remove apple juice stains from clothes?
Let’s start with clothes. Usually, there is a specific ingredient in juices called tannin which is basically the colour of the fruit. Thankfully, apple juice don’t have a high concentration of that ingredient in them. For example, the juice of berries, red grapes, etc. have a lot more of the tannin which makes their stains hard to remove.
If you spill apple juice on your clothes you should immediately blot the liquid with a clean cloth. Then you need to flush the affected area under running cold water.
Then you can easily throw the clothing item in the washing machine and wash it with the laundry detergent you normally use. This will be enough to get rid of the stain!
How to remove apple juice stains from carpets/ upholstery?
Now, let’s talk about stains on carpets and upholstery.
Again, the first thing you want to do is to blot the liquid with a clean cloth as much as possible. When to stop blotting? When no more moisture transfers to the cloth.
Then brag a bowl and mix two cups of warm water with two teaspoons of dishwashing detergent. Continue with dipping a clean cloth or a sponge in the soapy water and start treating the stain. Once you are done you should blot the affected area with another clean cloth just in order to absorb the soapy water.
Then rinse the area with a damp cloth!
