Fruit juice:

Two methods are applicable for the removal of juice stains.

Mix one tablespoon of the soap solution to one ounce of water and apply on the stain. Leave it for few minutes and rinse the item. If the stain remains, try the second method that is ammonia. Use a towel that is soaked in warm water and blot on the stain.



This type of stain can be removed using the hydrogen peroxide. Make the cloth wet and apply the hydrogen peroxide on the stain. Leave for 5 minutes and rinse with water. The stain will be removed magically!

For the wet stain, dab it with the ammonia. It can also use for dry blood stains. Soak the cloth in salt water for few hours and rinse with the ammonia solution.


Sauces and ketchup:

You may trouble a lot when the kids make their cloth dirty with ketchup or sauce. Using white vinegar will make the stain lighter. The next step is soaking of the cloth in warm water and wash with the dishwashing soap.
