With this hot weather, there is nothing more refreshing than a fresh fruit bowl. The WHO (World Health Organization) has proved the amazing benefits this habit has, and how good is for our body. But, even though this is a great habit, the spots fruit leave in our clothing are almost removable. In UrbanDryClean we are aware of this problem, and that’s why we made a list of different tips you can clean fruit remains in your clothes.
Clean fruit remains:
The first thing you need to do is to get rid of the fruit remains in the clothes. Use a spoon, which is a great helper without harming the fabric. After you completely remove the remains soak it into water during an hour and wash as normally would do.
Use cold water:
The cold water helps to remove those spots that have given you troubles. In this case, the water helps soften the fruit making it easier to remove. If you use hot water you will have the contrary effect, the juice will impregnate making hard to clean fruit remains.
If it’s a white garment:
If the spots happened in white clothes you will need to use harder remedies. Lemon drops if one of them, since it has a bleaching effect. Apply some drops to the spot and expose it to sunlight for a few hours. After is completely dry, wash as you would do normally.
Also, a great remedy for these cases is to use white vinegar. Dilute the vinegar with water, let it sit and wash it.
Never dry before the time that was indicated:
As we already said, the hot water helps the fruit to stay permanent, the same happens with the high temperatures the drying machine produces. Avoid drying the garment before the spot is completely vanished.
Baking soda, the best product:
Once again, we will use the amazing effects the baking soda has. To eliminate the fruit, we will use a mixture made out of baking soda and water, apply it to the affected zone, let it work for 15 minutes and wash. This mix could clear out the colors, so you should be careful and supervise while the time pass.
Let the garment to soak in cold water for 1 hour, mixing each 15-20 minutes, wash it as normal but with active oxygen. You would be amazed by the results.
