Grape Juice is one of those stains that tend to make us worry. With the bright color and bad reputation on clothing we can tend to think that cleaning a grape juice stain from the carpet is going to be near impossible and a lot of hard work. If you begin spot treatment as soon as possible with these treatment methods you may find the opposite to be true.
Method 1-Lemon Juice
Lemon Juice is great for removing grape juice. For this method you will need some lemon juice, a sponge, a soft bristle brush, and a clean cloth or paper towel and in some cases a little white vinegar. Dampen the sponge with a little water and blot or soak up as much of the grape juice from the carpeting as possible working from the outside of the stain to the center. Pour lemon juice directly onto the stain and use a clean dry cloth or paper towel to blot. Using the soft bristle brush, such as an unused toothbrush, gently scrub the stain you can apply more lemon juice of you feel necessary. If the lemon juice does not seem to be working try a little white vinegar directly to the stain and repeat the same steps used with the lemon juice with the vinegar until the stain lifts from the carpet fibers.
Method 2-Club Soda
For this method you will need two clean cloths or paper towels, club soda, and some table salt.
Begin by blotting the stain with a clean dry cloth to get as much of the stain up as possible. Next take a new clean cloth or towel and apply club soda then blot the stain working from the outside in until the stain disappears. If some of the stain still remains sprinkle with the table salt. When the salt is dry vacuum it up and the stain should be gone.
