How to Remove Berry Stains

How to Remove Berry Stains

Berries are one of the eating pleasures of summer, and particularly wonderful if you can eat newly sun-kissed berries fresh from the vine. But when the delicious red juice drips onto your favorite white cotton blouse and leaves a vivid stain, the delight fades quite quickly!

Here is a great tip for successfully removing berry stains from clothes:

The secret material to remove berry stains is vinegar. Use straight white distilled vinegar; it is readily available in all supermarkets. While organic apple cider vinegar is the perfect vinegar for ingesting, it has a color and can stain fabric. Soak berry stains in straight white distilled vinegar. First rinse the stain well then rest the part of the fabric that is stained in a bowl of straight vinegar. Rinse. Launder as usual.
