Thanksgiving Cranberry Sauce Stains: Here's How To Get Rid Of Them

Every Thanksgiving on almost every Thanksgiving table is cranberry sauce. Some people eat it. Some people don't. Everyone knows it can be a bothersome stain to remove, so you must be prepared to respond.

Like a red wine stain, you must move fast when it comes to treating a cranberry sauce stain. How fast you react to the cranberry sauce stain, in the case of most stains, depends on the success you will have in removing that stain.

Mark Pressed4Time's Tips To Remove Thanksgiving Cranberry Sauce Stains

  1. Rinse the excess liquid from the stained area with cool water. Be careful not to spread the stain farther.
  2. Make a mixture of one teaspoon of liquid laundry detergent and one tablespoon of white vinegar with one quart of cool water.
  3. Let the stain soak in the solution for fifteen minutes.
  4. After fifteen minutes, thoroughly rinse the fabric with cool water.
  5. If the stain is still visible, apply a small amount of rubbing alcohol and rinse the fabric again.
  6. Finally, launder the fabric in the hottest setting possible without ruining the fabric.

If you are unable to remove the stain in the wash, do not dry the clothing. Contact Mark Pressed4Time and let us take a crack at removing the stain.
