Pomegranate seeds are well-known for their multiple health benefits and sweet, crunchy taste. Unfortunately, when it comes to opening the fruit and removing those tiny, little seeds, it’s not a simple task to avoid squirting the juice all over your clothes. Be more careful if you do this and yet, if it happens to mess up your clothes, don’t panic. Try this little-known, but quite effective method. It will help you deal with pomegranate stains in just a few simple steps.
What you need:
- A bowl of warm water
- Some liquid soap or dish-washing product
- Yogurt/fresh milk
What to do:
- Begin by hand-washing the spotted area with warm water, mixed with some liquid soap and rub it gently with your fingers to remove as much of the juice as possible.
- Apply some yoghurt to the stained place and then leave it soaked for at least a couple of hours.
- Complete this domestic cleaning procedure till the last step where you need to wash the fabric once again.
- That’s pretty much everything! If you don’t have yoghurt, you can also use fresh milk and follow the same steps for best results.
Additional Tips that might Be Helpful:
- You can also try to remove pomegranate stains with lemon juice or baking soda. Before using any of these, check the label of the fabrics and make sure that those products are safe for your clothes.
- Don’t leave the stained fabrics to be set for a long time. Treat the spotted area as soon as possible, because old stains are extremely difficult to deal with. This is valid also for the carpet cleaning procedures.
- If nothing else helps, use some oxygen bleach to the spot. Leave for a couple of minutes and then carefully rinse with water.
