How-To

Grape juice is a delicious and refreshing beverage, but it can be a nightmare if it spills on your clothes, carpet, or other fabrics. The deep purple color can leave stubborn stains that seem impossible to remove. However, with the right techniques and a little patience, you can effectively eliminate these stains. In this how to get grape juice stains guide, we’ll explore various methods to get grape juice out of clothes, carpets, white clothes, and fabric in general. Let’s dive in!

How to Get Grape Juice Stains Out of Clothes

Grape juice stains on clothes can be particularly challenging due to the fabric’s ability to absorb liquids quickly. Here's a step-by-step guide on how to remove grape juice stains from clothes:

  1. Act Quickly: The sooner you address the stain, the better. Blot the excess juice with a clean cloth or paper towel. Avoid rubbing, as it can spread the stain.
  2. Rinse with Cold Water: Hold the stained area under cold running water. This helps to dilute the juice and prevent it from setting into the fabric.
  3. Pre-Treat the Stain: Apply a stain remover such as Kind Laundry’s Vegan Stain Remove Bar or a mixture of dish soap and white vinegar directly to the stain. Let it sit for about 15-30 minutes. Gently rub the fabric together to help work the solution into the fibers. You can also use a tampico stain brush such as the one here in combination with the stain remover bar.
  4. Wash as Usual: Launder the garment in cold water with a good quality laundry detergent, like Kind Laundry detergent sheets. Check the stain before drying, as heat can set the stain permanently. If the stain persists, repeat the pre-treatment and washing steps.

Alternative Methods: For tougher stains, you can use a mixture of hydrogen peroxide and dish soap. Apply it to the stain, let it sit for a few minutes, and then wash as usual.

How to Remove Grape Juice From Carpet

How to Get Grape Juice Out of Carpet

Carpet stains can be daunting, but with prompt action, you can prevent a permanent mark. Follow these steps to effectively remove grape juice stains:

  1. Blot the Stain: Use a clean cloth or paper towel to blot up as much of the grape juice as possible. Avoid rubbing, which can push the stain deeper into the fibers.
  2. Prepare a Cleaning Solution: Mix a tablespoon of dish soap with two cups of cold water. Alternatively, you can use a solution of one part white vinegar and two parts water.
  3. Apply the Solution: Using a clean cloth, sponge the stain with the cleaning solution. Blot it gently, working from the outside of the stain towards the center to prevent spreading.
  4. Rinse and Blot: After sponging the stain, use a clean cloth dipped in cold water to rinse the area. Blot until the cleaning solution is removed.
  5. Dry the Area: Use a dry cloth or paper towel to blot the area and remove excess moisture. You can also place a fan nearby to speed up the drying process.
  6. Use a Carpet Cleaner: If the stain persists, consider using a carpet cleaner. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions and test it on a small, inconspicuous area first.

How to Remove Grape Juice Out of White Clothes

White clothes can show stains more prominently, making it essential to act quickly and use effective methods to get grape juice stains out of white clothes:

  1. Immediate Rinse: Hold the stained area under cold running water to flush out as much juice as possible.
  2. Pre-Treat the Stain: Use a stain remover specifically designed for whites or a mixture of baking soda and water to create a paste. Apply it to the stain and let it sit for about 15-30 minutes. Alternatively, you can use this Stain Remover Bar to effectively pre-treat the stain before adding to your wash cycle. 
  3. Use Bleach (If Safe): Check the care label on the garment. If it’s safe to use bleach, add a small amount of bleach to the washing machine along with your regular detergent. Alternatively, you can use oxygen bleach as a safer option.
  4. Wash Thoroughly: Wash the garment in the hottest water safe for the fabric, using Kind Laundry detergent sheets such as Fragrance-Free or Ocean Breeze. The hot water helps to break down the stain molecules.
  5. Inspect Before Drying: Make sure the stain is completely gone before putting the garment in the dryer. Heat can set the stain, making it difficult to remove.

How to Get Grape Juice Stains Out of Fabric

Different types of fabrics require different care. Here’s a general approach that works well for most fabrics:

  1. Blot the Stain: Use a clean cloth or paper towel to blot the stain. Avoid rubbing, which can push the stain deeper into the fibers.
  2. Rinse with Cold Water: Hold the stained area under cold running water to dilute the juice.
  3. Apply a Cleaning Solution: Use a mixture of dish soap and white vinegar, or a stain remover suitable for the fabric. Apply it to the stain and let it sit for about 15-30 minutes.
  4. Gently Scrub: Use a soft brush or cloth to gently scrub the stained area. Be careful not to damage delicate fabrics.
  5. Rinse and Repeat: Rinse the fabric thoroughly with cold water. Repeat the treatment if necessary.
  6. Launder Carefully: Wash the fabric according to the care label instructions, using Kind Laundry detergent sheets for a gentle yet effective clean that’s free of toxins or other harsh chemicals. 
  7. Air Dry: Air drying is preferable to machine drying, as it prevents heat from setting any remaining stain.

Additional Tips and Tricks

  • Avoid Heat: Never use hot water or a dryer until the stain is completely gone. Heat can set the stain permanently.
  • Test Cleaning Solutions: Always test cleaning solutions on an inconspicuous area of the fabric to ensure they don’t cause damage or discoloration.
  • Use Enzyme Cleaners: For stubborn stains, enzyme-based cleaners can be highly effective. They break down organic stains like grape juice. Kind Laundry detergent sheets are formulated with powerful protease enzymes to effectively treat stubborn, set-in stains.
  • Patience is Key: Some stains may require multiple treatments. Be patient and persistent for the best results.
