Hi, my name is Rachel Yatuzis and I'm going to give you some stain removal tips for grape juice. Grape juice, grape jelly, it all makes the same color stain on your clothes; specially with kids, man, they're constantly staining their clothes with grape juice. I know my son is. He's three years old and I'll show you what I do. A figure sense grape juice is an organic material; you want to use another organic material to remove it. First off, you want to blot the stain. That's going to soak up as much as you can before you get down to the nitty gritty. You want to grab some lemon juice, pure lemon juice; it's organic; you're using nature to fight nature and it usually works pretty well actually. Get a wet sponge and work it into there. Keep doing this and it should get a whole lot of the stain out. Looks like I just spread it around, but you know, it's really lightening it and bleaching it out a bit. You also want to try vinegar and water; excellent, excellent stain remover. So spray vinegar and water on the stain; really douse it and even just spraying it right here, I can see the stain going away. As with any stain the trick is to get to it as soon as you can. I would get a dry cloth now and start blotting, working it in. Do this several times; if you still have a stain, make a combination of of dish soap and peroxide. A cup of this or a teaspoon of dish soap with one cup of peroxide; pour it onto the stain; work it in. Just make sure you get rid of the stain before you dry. You can wash it as usual; but make sure the stain is almost completely gone before you put, before you wash it and then don't put it in the dryer. Set it out on the sun; the sun has a bleaching agent when it comes to clothing and stuff like that. The sun should help bleach the stain out and the stain won't be permanent after that. That simple. I'm Rachel Yatuzis and that is how you remove grape juice from your clothes.
