Whether you enjoy drinking fresh orange juice or using it in a recipe like Orange Chicken, take as much precaution as you can in case colored juice would spill onto your clothes, though sometimes doesn’t work. Fresh orange juice seldom leaves a much of a stain on fabric right away but some concentrates and orange flavored drinks contain extra dye. It is also a bad idea to leave the fresh juice stain on clothing for too long. Orange juice contains citric acid which acts as a bleaching agent, especially when exposed to sunlight. Orange juice stains appear on fabrics because of tannin, a plant component that often shows as a color in the fruit.
Immediately blot the juice spill from the fabric with a clean white cloth or paper towels. and follow the tips from Aogrand, your trusty detergent powder manufacturer.
DO NOT attempt to wipe away the stains that are wet or damp as this will spread the stain. When the stain is dry, gently scrape off the excess with the plastic knife or spoon, being careful not to grind the particles into the fabric.
Gently brush at the stain spot with small brush or toothbrush. Put a few drops of CLEACE liquid detergent or JOBY multiple soaps onto the stain, and rub it into the stain with your thumb and forefinger. Add a drop or two of water to the stain spot and briskly rub with brush or toothbrush on BOTH sides of the fabric, using circular motions. You may need to repeat these steps several times before the stain is completely gone.
Wash the garment following all care guidelines on the tag.
When cycle is completely finished, check the clothes carefully for any sign of the stain. If the stain remains, repeat the previous steps. NEVER dry clothes in a dryer if a stain remains as this will set the stain, which will then be nearly impossible to remove.
ALWAYS read the label on your garment to determine proper washing instructions.
It is generally a good idea to wash stained clothes separately from another laundry to avoid spreading the stain to other clothes.
