A Juice Cleanse That Works
Store-bought fruit juice contains a number of chemicals that are apt to stain whatever it touches ––from textiles to fingers. When there’s multiple kids, multiple juice boxes, and many unexpected spills:
- Blot the stain with a paper towel or clean cloth.
- Mix 1/4 teaspoon carpet shampoo with 1 liter of warm water.
- Apply the solution to the stain and blot repeatedly.
- Rinse the stain with warm water and place a dry towel over it. Place a heavy object on top of the towel to hold it in place. Leave for a few hours, and the stain should be cleared!
If it persists:
- Mix 2/3 cup water with ½ cup white vinegar. Using a spray bottle, apply the solution directly to the stain.
- Flush the affected area with water and a damp paper towel. Dry the area by placing a heavy object on top for a few hours.
- If the stain is still visible, moisten the stain with 3% hydrogen peroxide. Apply more dry paper towels and a weight. Let sit for one hour, and repeat as needed.
