How to Get Juice Stains Out of Carpet

Fruit juice has loads of vitamins and minerals that are great for you, but your carpet, on the other hand, would be much better off without it. Removing troublesome juice stains (especially cranberry, orange, and grape juice stains) can be tricky.
Thankfully, there are a number of ways to deal with them without having to shell out all your hard earned money on a new carpet. Following the instructions below will tell you how to get juice stains out of carpet and give you the best chance of getting rid of the stain, saving you money and stress.

Before Removing Juice Stains Out of Your Carpet

Time is of the essence, so it’s important to clean the spill as quickly as possible before it has a chance to set into the fibres. Before you get started, it’s a good idea to pretest the products you’ll be using to avoid adding further damage to your carpet. The best way to do this is to apply the cleaning solution to a small inconspicuous area of the carpet to ensure there is no colour transfer.

Here’s What You’ll Need:

  • Cleaning solution
    • 1 teaspoon neutral detergent with 1 teaspoon white vinegar and 1 quart cold water
    • 1/4 cup baking soda and 2 cups cold water
    • 1/4 teaspoon mild, non-bleach detergent with 1 liter cool water
  • Clean white cloths
  • Spray bottle
  • Spoon

Here’s How to Remove Juice Stains From Your Carpet

  1. Start by gently blotting the stain with a clean white cloth to remove as much of the juice as you can. It’s vital to blot the area – scrubbing will only push the stain deeper into the carpet fibres.
  2. Dampen a clean cloth with the cleaning solution, then place it on top of the stain.
  3. Gently press on the cloth with the bottom of the spoon, starting from the outside and working your way towards the middle.
  4. Using a clean cloth each time, repeat this process as needed until the stain is gone.
  5. Blot the area with a clean dry cloth, spray it with clean water, and then blot up the cleaning solution with another dry cloth.
  6. Cover the area with another clean cloth then stack heavy items on top of it. Let it set for a few hours to lift out any remaining moisture. Later, remove the items and allow the area to air dry.
  7. Vacuum the area once the spot has completely dried.

If you still notice a stain, you’ll more than likely need our help, SaraCares, to properly remove the remaining juice.
