How to remove a fruit juice stain



Stop Stains Before They Start

The best cure for a spill is a fast response. If a spill is allowed to become a stain, it will be much more difficult to remove. Here are some tips for eliminating stains and spills.
There are three important steps that you must use to treat a stain, hopefully before it has a chance to set in your carpet:

Apply: Wet a clean, white (not printed) paper towel with a cleaning solution. Then dampen the carpet with it. Avoid wetting the carpet through to its backing.

Blot: Absorb the excess liquid from the carpet by pressing straight down with a clean, dry, white paper towel. Do not rub. Place a half-inch thick pad of clean, dry, white paper towels with a weight on top and leave overnight if necessary.

Try This Remedy to Remove Fruit Juice Stains:

Step 1: Blot up excess spill.                                              

Step 2: Apply dry baking soda.

Step 3: Scrape and vacuum.

Step 4: Apply water using a damp sponge to rinse remaining baking soda. Don't over wet.

Step 5: Blot-don't rub.

Step 6: Apply pre-soak solution (see "Cleaning Solutions") using a damp towel.

Step 7: Rinse with water as above.

Step 8: Blot-don't rub-dry well.

... OR:

Step 1: Blot up excess spill.

Step 2: Apply detergent solution (see "Cleaning Solutions"), use damp towel, and leave 3-5 minutes.

Step 3: Blot-don't rub.

Step 4: Apply white vinegar (undiluted), using a damp towel.

Step 5: Blot again. Finish by weighing down a half-inch thick pad of white paper towels to absorb all the moisture. Leave overnight if necessary.
Cleaning solutions to have on hand:
1. Detergent: Mix 1/2 teaspoon clear dishwashing detergent with one cup of warm (not hot) water.

2. Pre-soak Solution: Mix 1 teaspoon enzyme laundry detergent (such as Axion, Biz, or others) with one cup of water.

3. Dry Powder Cleaner: Use powdered carpet cleaners.

4. Dry Cleaning Solvent: Non-oily, non-caustic type sold as spot removal for garments. Caution: May be flammable.

* Note: Not all carpet fibers react the same way when treated for stains. Before proceeding with any of the preceding cleaning procedures, we recommend you contact the appropriate fiber company for their suggested maintenance guidelines. Failure to follow these guidelines may void your warranty. For more information, please contact your Northwest Trends Flooring America retailer.

Note: If your carpet has an Ultra 25a or Everguard Warranty, you must call 3M directly prior to treating any stain. Failure to do this will void your warranty.
