How to Remove Juice Stains

Cool water might be enough to remove juice stains as long as you tackle the spillage immediately. Spilled fruit juice, such as orange, apple, or grapefruit can be easily cleaned up by blotting the spill with a dry clean cloth, rinsing with cool water and then blotting dry once again. If the juice stain remains, use white vinegar to clean the spot instead of using detergents as some of them may set the juice stain and make it impossible to remove. Pour a little amount of white vinegar directly on the affected area, then use a sponge to blot up the juice stain. Apply a stain pretreater, if needed, and wash the fabric as following the care label instructions.
On dry clean only items, sponge the juice stain with white vinegar, and then rinse the spot with cool water. If the stain is still visible, apply a digestant enzyme paste to the stained area and let it sit undisturbed for about 30 minutes before rinsing the area. Do not use digestant enzyme paste on wool or silk, for such material, cleaners Acton suggest the following steps:

  1. Soak up any excess liquid from the affected area using an absorbent cloth.
  2. Mix 1 cup of lukewarm water with 1 teaspoon of mild detergent that doesn’t contain bleach or alkaline.
  3. Blot the solution into the stain, then rinse the spot using white vinegar.
  4. Blot up the excess moisture and reapply the cleaning solution if the stain is still there.
  5. Once the juice stain is removed, sponge the area with plain water to rinse out the solution and then blot dry.
  6. For stubborn juice stains, use rubbing alcohol.

Note: Always test a hidden area for fading, discolouration and etc. before applying any cleaning solution to the stained area.
