Removing Blueberry Stains From Clothing

It’s National Blueberry Pie Day! Americans have been filling their pies with delicious, fresh-picked berries since the colonial era. Today, blueberry pie is one of the most popular pie flavors in the United States.

Inevitably, you'll end up with blueberry pie stains on napkins, tablecloths, or your bright white t-shirt. It's ok, we've got you! 

If at all possible, treat these types of fruit stains while they are still fresh, the sooner the better. Scrape and blot up all you can, then immediately and repeatedly sponge the area with cool water until no more color is being removed. 

Read the Labels

You should never wash anything before you carefully read the labels. Most articles of clothing have two labels. One will tell you the fabric composition and the other will give the recommended care instructions. It is important to read these labels before pretreating or washing so that you don't inadvertently destroy your clothes. If the care label advises to dry clean the garment, you should take it to a dry cleaner as soon as possible.

Run Under Cold Water

Turn your water on full power and place the stain under the running water. The goal here is to get the water to flush the stain out. The stain may not actually come all the way out, but it should be loosened.

Pretreat the Stain

Pop a Dropps 4-in-1 Booster pac on top of the stained area, and pour warm water on top until the pac is dissolved. Let it sit for 5 minutes while the power pac does it's magic. Rinse and check for any remaining stains.  

Wash as Normal

The Booster pac will knock out any set in stains, so you can launder as normal once the stain is gone.

Tip: You'll have the most success when tackling a fresh stain. If you don't have immediate access to booster pacs, detergent, or washing facilities we recommend rinsing the stain as thoroughly as possible. This will make your stain fighting job much easier!
