There are many options for getting rid of pomegranate stains, depending on the type of fabric on which the juice got, as well as the freshness of the contamination itself. As you know, it is much easier to remove a fresh stain than an old one, everything is complicated by the fact that garnet is a natural dye that has a strong pigment. Therefore, more efforts will have to be made in comparison with the removal of traces of cherries , which we talked about earlier. Let’s figure out how to wash pomegranate juice from clothes with improvised means without the help of a dry cleaner. They will help: soap, soda, hydrogen peroxide, alcohol, vinegar, and even such unusual options as toothpaste or an aspirin tablet.

Useful! The tips described below are great for washing stains from any fruits, vegetables and berries.

Boiling water and soap

If you were cleaning a pomegranate and its juice got on you, we recommend that you put the berry aside and take care of immediate clothing resuscitation. In this case, it will be enough for you to simply wash the clothes with soap.

  1. If the stain from pomegranate juice is large, then after removing the clothes, sprinkle salt on top for 5-10 minutes (put a napkin under it so that the juice does not get on clean areas of the fabric). The salt will absorb part of the liquid with the dye, and it will be easier to wash such a thing.
  2. If there is no hot water in the house, while the salt absorbs the juice, put the kettle to boil.
  3. Hold the contaminated cloth under a stream of hot water. Make sure that the dye removed with water does not get on the clean part of the clothes. IMPORTANTLY! Never pour hot water on old pomegranate juice stains.
  4. When most of the garnet dye comes off, soap the clothes with laundry soap (for white items, take soap with a bleaching effect). It remains to finally wash the thing and rinse it.

The described washing procedure is only suitable for fresh juice stains. But what if there is no time to act here and now? Is it possible to wash away the dried juice? Perhaps.

How to wash pomegranate juice from clothes

As already written, you cannot soak the dried juice of fruits and berries in hot water, otherwise the dye will be firmly embedded in the fabric. If you do not want to use any improvised means, fearing the reaction of the clothes, then the old stain can be washed by the following method:

  1. Wet a bar of soap and rub it on the dirt on the clothes.
  2. Leave for 1.5 hours in a soapy state. Additionally, you can soak clothes in boiling water for 5-10 minutes until the water cools.
  3. Wash the thing under the tap with warm water or rinse in the washing machine.
  4. If necessary, repeat the washing.

This option is suitable for colored fabrics and materials.

Soda

Soda is an excellent absorbent that will absorb the dye from the juice without a trace. There are two ways to remove a pomegranate stain with baking soda. Choose the one that is more convenient for you. Both options are effective.

The first way:

  1. Pour 1-2 teaspoons of soda into a small basin of cold water and soak the fabric for about half an hour.
  2. After this procedure, wash the thing with soap or powder.

The second method is effective for cleaning delicate fabrics that require careful washing:

  1. Pour soda on the stained area and wet the place of application with water.
  2. Leave for half an hour, and then rinse in the washing machine.

Yolk and glycerin

An unusual, but very effective way to wash pomegranate juice from clothes. It is especially effective when there are only a few splashes from cleaning the grenade on the clothes. The prepared product is applied directly to the garnet flow, and not to the entire garment.

  1. Make a mixture of one egg yolk and a teaspoon of glycerin.
  2. Apply a small amount to marks from pomegranate juice. The mixture will absorb the juice with the dye. Hold like this for 5-10 minutes.
  3. Wash with soap in warm water. Evaluate the result. If necessary, repeat.

Alcohol

To dissolve dried pomegranate juice, use alcohol. You can take any alcohol-containing composition, it is only important that it is free of dyes and any impurities.

  • Moisten the contaminated clothes with alcohol and rub a little with a brush. Next, wash off under a jet of hot water.
  • For delicate fabrics, wet a cotton swab, apply to clothes, wait half a minute until the pomegranate juice dissolves and is absorbed into the cotton. Repeat the procedure until the trace disappears.

You can replace alcohol with ammonia or gasoline, but this method is not suitable for delicate fabrics. It is best to test this method on a small piece of fabric.

  2. Wet cotton wool, put it on the stain and leave it for half an hour.
  3. When the fabric dries, it can be machine washed.

You can wash away pomegranate juice using ordinary toothpaste. There are two ways to clean with this product:

  • Take a small amount of paste, apply it to the stain, rub it thoroughly with a brush and wash it off.
  • You can make a mixture of toothpaste and glycerin. Mix the means in a ratio of 1:1, warm up, apply to the juice mark and leave it for one hour. After that, the clothes must be washed with soap.

Onion

Extraction of pomegranate juice using onions is perfect for colored materials.

  1. Finely chop or grate the onion.
  2. Apply the resulting slurry for a few minutes on the contamination.
  3. Remove the onion, repeat the procedure.
