STAIN REMOVAL GUIDE: Berry (Juice)

Berries

Berries are a nice healthy snack for children and adults alike.  Whether you pack them in your child’s lunch or yours, if any of the juice gets on your wool rugs at home it can be quite the eyesore.  Actually the flesh of most berries is ivory, the color and pigmentation is all in the skin. When the skin is pierced and broken the colorant then seeps into the flesh and spreads.  Follow these same instructions for fruit juice also.

“Removing any type of berry stain can be a real headache because when the skin of the berry is broken or pierced the colorant separates and spreads”
