How do I get strawberry stains out?


For strawberry stains, start by blotting away any excess (if the stain is fresh) and then rinse the stain with cold water.  What you do next depends on the color and fiber content of the item with the stain on it.

For white, bleachable items (always avoid bleaching wool, silk, mohair, leather and spandex) apply Clorox® Bleach Pen Gel to the stained area right before laundering, and then wash immediately in the hottest water recommended on the care label using detergent and ¾ cup Clorox® Regular Bleach2.  Air dry the item and check for success.  If any stain remains, repeat the treatment.  You want to avoid tumble drying in a hot dryer until you know the stain is all the way out.  This is important to avoid heat setting any residual stain so you can’t get it all the way out with a second treatment.

For colored items (or white items that include a small amount of spandex, for example), apply Liquid Clorox2® Stain Remover and Color Booster directly to the stain and rub in.  Wait 3-5 minutes, and then wash in warmest water recommended using detergent and more Clorox2®.  Air dry and check for success, and if necessary repeat the treatment.
