Stain Buster — Blueberry

Blueberry

Fabric

Rinse stain with cool water. Mix one tablespoon of white vinegar and 1/2 teaspoon of washing up liquid with a litre of cool water. Soak the stain in the vinegar/detergent solution for 15 minutes. Rinse with cool water. If the stain remains, sponge with surgical spirit and rinse thoroughly. Wash as usual, adding bleach if safe for the fabric.

 

Upholstery

Mix one tablespoon of white vinegar with 2/3 cup of surgical spirit. Using a clean white cloth, sponge the stain with the vinegar/alcohol solution and blot until the liquid is absorbed. Keep sponging and blotting until the stain disappears. Sponge with cold water and blot dry.

 

Carpet

Mix one tablespoon of washing up liquid with two cups of warm water. Using a clean white cloth, sponge the stain with the detergent solution and blot until the liquid is absorbed. Keep sponging and blotting until the stain disappears or is no longer absorbed into the cloth.

If the stain remains, mix one tablespoon of ammonia (warning: never mix bleach and ammonia – the resulting fumes are hazardous) with two cups of cold water. Sponge the stain with the ammonia solution and blot until the liquid is absorbed. Sponge with cold water and blot dry.
