I love drinking juice and I love eating fruits, however, I have a bad habit of spilling juice on my carpet… I also have a bad habit of dropping fruit on my carpet – and if it’s a cherry then I immediately used to panic.
Of course, I don’t intend on dropping and spilling things on my carpet and it’s always an accident but I still have to remove the stain, right? Thankfully, I spend a lot of time searching for the best juice stain removal method on the internet and then putting everything I read to the test – and this is how I narrowed it down to two extremely effective and easy removal methods I use on regular basis. And, of course, I am going to share them with you today!
The First Method
The first thing you need to do is blot the stain and absorb as much of the liquid as possible regardless if you spilled juice or you dropped fruit. Then spray warm water on the affected area – not cold nor hot, warm!
Continue blotting the stain with either a paper towel or a white cloth.
If the stain still remains then mix a teaspoon of laundry detergent with warm water in a bowl. Dampen a cloth in the mixture and treat the stain with it.
Once you are happy with the result – rinse the area with a damp cloth and wait for it to dry.
The Second Method
The second method I have for you is super effective and I recommend it if the stain is big. Again, start off with blotting as much of the liquid as possible with a paper towel.
Then mix a dishwasher detergent with a cup of warm water and treat the stain with the mixture.
Once you do that, you are going to want to mix half a cup of white vinegar with two cups of warm water in a spray bottle. Spray the solution all over the stain.
Then go back to the mixture with dishwasher detergent and treat the stain with it one more time. Once you do that – spray vinegar over the stain again.
And then simply rinse the area with a damp cloth and wait for it to dry.
If the stain still remains then you need to apply hydrogen peroxide to the affected area and let it sit for at least an hour before you rinse.
