Remove Berry Stains From Clothing by Rinsing With Boiling Water

A handful of berries are a great snack, but one dropped berry or the thoughtless wiping of your juice-covered hands can leave stains on your clothes. If you act quickly, a little boiling water will prevent the red stain from settling on your favorite clothes, even white ones.

A good stain remover will remove stubborn stains as soon as they set, but it’s best to get rid of the stain as soon as it appears, and Joe Furst of The Kitchn recommends rinsing it off with boiling water. Fill the kettle with water and let it boil on the stove. Blot the stain with a clean cloth to absorb some juice, but do not rub or press too hard. Now turn the clothes inside out, stretch them over a large bowl, and pour boiling water over the stain. If you do it inside out, the stain will come out of the fabric, not inward. If you can’t keep your clothes taut on your own, wrap a rubber band around the edge of the bowl. When the stain is gone, hang the garment to dry in the sun. It should be as good as new in a few hours.
