STAIN REMOVAL

 

Fruit juice can be tough to remove from fabric, especially darker juices (we’re looking at you, strawberries!). The earlier you tackle the stain, the better your chances are of getting rid of it.

  1. First, blot the stain with a clean towel until all excess juice is soaked up.
  2. Mix cold water and white vinegar (a 3:1 ratio usually works best), and blot the stain gently with the solution until the stain is no longer visible.
  3. Wash in cold water with a 4-in-1 Booster Pac to eliminate any traces of the stain.
  4. Heat from the dryer can set stains—making them virtually impossible to remove—so it’s always best to air dry your garment to be sure the stain is gone.

 

Chocolate from your Chocolate-Dipped Strawberry Pops made its way onto your favorite white t-shirt? Don’t worry; we’ve got you covered!

  1. Allow any clumps to reharden, then scrape off with a dull knife or spoon.
  2. Soak your garment in warm water with a 4-in-1 Booster Pac for 20 minutes.
  3. Wash normally with a gentle detergent and the hottest water safe for the fabric.
