Remember for removing stains caused by zucchini, as with most stains, you will get the best result if you treat the stain as quickly as possible.

What you want to avoid, if possible, is for the zucchini stain to set.

Stains typically set in one of two ways, with time or heat.

This is not to say that you cannot remove stains caused by zucchini that are set, but it will take more effort and more time for presoaking and perhaps multiple washings.

Zucchini Stain Removal From Fabric

Step 1: Scrape off any excess zucchini from the fabric.

Step 2: Run the fabric under cold running water (not warmer water).

Step 3: Pretreat the stain with liquid dish soap and gently rub in. In the alternative you can pretreat with a laundry stain remover.

Step 4: Launder in the hottest water the fabric will allow to get out the zucchini stain, and either chlorine bleach if the fabric will allow it, or color safe bleach if not.

Hint: Make sure the stain is gone after washing, but before you place in the dryer or you may set the stain. Repeat if necessary.

How To Remove Zucchini Stains From Upholstery

Step 1: Scrape off any excess zucchini 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 zucchini stain with a clean white cloth.

Step 4: Next, blot at the solution until the liquid is absorbed.

Step 5: Repeat steps 3-4 until the zucchini stain is removed from the upholstery.

Step 6: Now that the zucchini 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 zucchini stain.

Follow the same directions with this ammonia solution as with the dishwashing liquid solution mentioned above.
