Spot On Stain Remover


This shirt is almost the same color as our logo-wear at work.  We aren’t required to wear the logo, but it’s nice to show support.  So this was something I already had and can wear the “colors” without spending the dough.

Yesterday I spilled pure cranberry juice on it.  It might as well have been dye.  I wish I had a before picture, but I was too busy ripping it off and running to the sink.  Water did nothing to the stain.  It just made the shirt wet.  I tried a stain stick.  The spot turned dark blue-gray.  I used a nail brush, and it paled very little.

Then I remembered a little post by my friend at Living Simply Free.  I remembered thinking, “Hmmm . . . I will have to try Hydrogen Peroxide on those carpet stains someday . . . “

So I reached for the bottle, and the spot started to fade.  I plugged the sink, poured in more hydrogen peroxide, and let it sit while I put some clothes back on and finished making my dinner.  After dinner I picked up the shirt which showed NO SIGN of said stain, and threw it in the wash.  Here it is, wrinkled from sitting, but otherwise no worse for the wear, straight from the dryer.  I’ve looked at it from every angle, and cannot see a spot or stain or drip of cranberry juice.

    …that is fabulous I have never heard of doing that – I would recommend testing the fabric in an inconspicuous place first htough as I know hydrogen peroxide will work like bleach and leave ‘stains’ on darker colours by leaching the colour out… I am going to check out the link now as we speak… 🙂

    Cranberry juice, especially the real pure stuff really does stain. I’m glad you thought to use the peroxide. Btw, peroxide will work on many other stains, including blood so keep it handy 🙂

    Awesome! This is like finding money in the sofa. 🙂
