Removing Berry Stains


Some people would be afraid to bring their three year old daughter raspberry picking in her beautiful white dress, but not me.  I have a secret.

To remove berry stains, just use water!  

This is my all-time favourite cleaning technique that I just have to share.  It, of course, comes from my mom and it literally feels like your doing a magic trick.  It requires no chemicals, just boiling water.

  1. Stretch the stained piece of fabric over a bowl.

  2. Pour boiling water through the stain.

Be careful not burn yourself.  Some fabrics with a tighter weave don’t allow the water to run through as easily.  Use a bigger bowl or a pot if that’s the case and repeat pouring the water until it runs through the fabric and takes the stain with it.
