How to Remove
FRUIT & BERRY
Spots and Stains

 
We sell several professional strength spot & stain removers. These will help remove many stains and clean spots from most carpets. Look below or check out our "Bottled Chemicals" section by clicking here.
HOW TO CLEAN FRUIT & BERRY STAINS: Always sponge fresh stains promptly with cool water before they have time to set. Some, such as citrus, are invisible when dry; aging or heating turns them yellow and then they are hard to remove. Never use soap and water first on fruit stains. It may set them permanently.
 
Always sponge such stains promptly with cool water. This simple treatment will remove many of them if you acted quickly enough. Or soak them with cool water for 30 minutes or more. Some may need to be soaked overnight. After sponging or soaking, work undiluted liquid detergent into the stain and rinse. If the stain remains, you will have to use a bleach*. Old stains and stains that have been set by heat are in the "difficult-if-not-impossible-to-remove" category.
On non washable fabrics, sponge the stain with cool water or put a sponge over it and squirt cool water through the cloth with a small syringe or medicine dropper.
 
If the fabric will stand it, poor small amounts of boiling water on it from a height of 1 to 3 feet (mind the tootsies).

*NOTE: Some products like hydrogen peroxide, or alcohol can actually bleach or change the color in some fabrics. Read the WARNING notice below and proceed with caution whenever you use such products.

 WARNING: Before making any attempts to remove spots, always test fabric for colorfastness first by applying a small amount of the cleaning solution or chemical on a hidden or unnoticeable area. The tips listed here are NOT guaranteed to work in every case and may have a negative affect. When using any chemical or liquid on fabric you should PROCEED WITH CAUTION. If you are unsure as to how your carpet or upholstery might be affected you should call a professional cleaning technician in your area.
