Remove Beet And Fruit Juice Stain With Boiling Water
Fruit and beet stains can be difficult to remove, with their bright colors dripped on tablecloths, linens, and clothing. However, sometimes the simplest, most natural, and oldest remedies really do work wonders and that's the case here.
A reader, Julie, sent in her tip for removing both beet and fruit juice stains that has been passed down through her family for generations.
And as you can see when you scroll down to see the comments there's a reason it's been passed down -- it works, really well!
Julie said: "If you stain a piece of clothing, or anything small, with a bright stain from things like beets
it is very easy to remove them.
All you need is boiling water, a strainer to hold the cloth open to the stain, and a sink.
Stretch the cloth out over the strainer, in one layer, exposing the stain.
Then pour boiling water on the material (supposedly from as high as you can though I suspect that part is an old wives tale) then watch the stain disappear.
Wash as normal.
Do not try to get out with cold water first!
It is counter-intuitive, but my family has been dealing with fruit stains
this way for decades."
Thanks for this tip Julie! Not only do the readers below in the comments tell me this one works great, but in addition I know this home remedy definitely does work, since I've received it several times before, but for different types of spots, including from red wine
, and tea
As always, when using boiling water to clean or remove from stains, make sure you use caution. You definitely don't want to harm yourself as you do this, so be careful of splash back and keep your fingers out of the way!
