To remove cranberry juice, apply a mixture of dishwashing liquid and vinegar, let sit, then wash as normal.
what is normal
Careful! I tried this on a grey shirt, and the area the mixture touched has turned an ugly yellowish color, which I'm not real sure it going to wash out.
My Cranberry juice stain turned green after I did this
would this be safe to use on carpet?
I think they wrote "normal" because it depends on what your fabric is. Check the label if it's an item of clothing.
BTW, I've found that overnight soaking does an amazing job of removing stains--more than all the BS on commercials for this detergent or than. Also a lucky thing for me as a desert dweller who hangs my clothes outside to dry is that I've found the sun does a great job of bleaching the stains out of my clothes. (Delicate colors I hang inside out.)
Does it stain if you don`t do this???
Great tip!!! I had a gorgeous white skirt with Cranberry juice stains along the fringes. Damn skirt found its way tot eh bottom of my closet and those stains remained there for a year before I found it again. I put dawn dish liquid mixed with white vinegar all over the juice stains and let it sit for 15 minutes, then hand washed it in the sink with laundry detergent and lots or white vinegar and it came totally clean!!!!!!! Absolutely amazing! Thanks so much!
