Removing Beet Stains

Do NOT use cold water on beet stains (all the internet places tell you to use cold water and this is how you know that tip was written by somebody who is just making stuff up, not giving you tried and true methods).
Put water on to boil. Put the clothing with the beet stain in the sink, spreading it out so the stain is in the middle and slowly pour the boiling water over the stain. You can also spread it out over a colander in the sink (the colander will help keep the beet stained section of the clothing in place better) . It doesn’t take much time or boiling water. ┬áNaturally, use caution when dealing with boiling water.

I’ve heard this works with blueberry stains, too, but I don’t know.

    One Thanksgiving, I was horrified to spill juicy homemade cranberry sauce all over my aunt’s white tablecloth. She laughed and told me not to worry about it, then told me how HER grandmother would clear the dishes after the Thanksgiving feast, place a teacup under each cranberry stain as her tea kettle came to a boil, and pour the hot water over the stain and into each cup.

    Yep. It works. For all fruit stains. (I haven’t tried it with wine.). The only time I had less than satisfactory results was when I waited a couple of days to get around to it.

    Would this work for watermelon stains as well, I wonder?

      I don’t know why not.
