Mango stain removal becomes important when you accidentally spill that tasty mango salsa, or your smoothie, on yourself, the furniture or the floor.
The key to mango stains, as with all stains, is to begin treating them as soon as possible.
The quicker you get to a stain the less effort you will need to remove it, because it will not have had time to set.
That is not to say you cannot remove mango juice stains if they have set, but instead you will need more time and patience, and possibly longer soaking times if you need to do a presoak.
Below are instructions for how to remove mango stains from fabric, upholstery and carpet.
Step 1: Scrape off any excess mango from the fabric.
Step 2: Run the fabric under cold running water (not warmer water).
Step 4: Let the stained fabric soak for 10-15 minutes with the pretreater in cold water (optional step).
Hint: Make sure the spot is gone after washing, but before you place in the dryer or you may set it. Repeat if necessary.
Step 1: Scrape off any excess mango from the upholstery.
Step 2: Mix a solution of two cups cool water and one tablespoon dishwashing liquid.
Step 3: Using this solution, sponge the spot with a clean white cloth.
Step 4: Next, blot at the stain until the liquid is absorbed.
Step 5: Repeat steps 3-4 until the spot is removed from the upholstery.
Step 6: Now that the stain is removed you should get plain cold water and a new white cloth and sponge the area to remove the cleaning solution, and then blot dry.
Hint: Be sure to get the upholstery only as wet as necessary to remove the mango stain.

The instructions for removal of mango stains from carpet is the same as for upholstery.
However, if you don't have luck with this stain removal method above you can also do something additional with the carpet stain, which is to mix a solution of one tablespoon of ammonia with two cups warm water, and use this as a stain removal solution.
