Remove Orange Juice Stains From Clothing
Hold the orange juice-stained garment under cold water and allow the water to run over and through the fabric. Continue to rinse the garment until the orange juice stain has lightened.
Rub a little heavy-duty laundry detergent into the fibers of your garment. Allow the detergent to sit on the orange juice stain while you prepare to wash the garment in the washing machine.
Add all-fabric bleach to your wash cycle. If the stained garment is white, you can use chlorine bleach instead. Wash your garment in the hottest water possible, according to the directions on the care label.
Hang your garment to dry. Once it's dry, check to see if all orange juice stains have been removed. Repeat steps 2 and 3 if any orange juice stain remains.
Remove Orange Juice Stains From Carpets and Upholstery
Scoop up any orange pulp from your carpet or upholstery using a spoon. Dispose of the substance in your garbage or sink.
Combine 1 tbsp. of liquid dish washing detergent with 2 cups of water. Use cool water for upholstery and warm water for removing the orange juice stain from carpet. Mix the solution in a bowl with your hand.
Soak a clean cloth in the soapy solution, wringing out the excess liquid. Dab at the carpet or upholstery beginning at the outside of the stain and working your way in. Use a dry, clean cloth to blot the moisture from the soapy solution and orange juice stain.
Continue to alternate dabbing at the stain with soapy solution and blotting up the moisture with a dry cloth until the orange juice stain is gone.
Rinse your carpet or upholstery with cool water on a clean cloth. Apply a dry cloth to the site of the orange juice stain to blot as much moisture as possible. Allow the upholstery or carpet to air dry.
