Juice can be one of the more difficult stains to remove due to the heavy dye that is commonly added to the liquid. A spilled glass of cherry, grape, tomato, cranberry or pomegranate juice often invokes a feeling of panic. Leather couches, jackets, shoes and belts are prone to staining. Many liquids, including juice, can be wiped away from leather if the stain is fresh. To remove a juice stain that has had a chance to work its way into leather, use a few common household items.
Things You'll Need
- Paper towels
- Liquid detergent soap
- Bucket or bowl
- Soft cloth
- Soft bristled brush (toothbrush)
Wipe up as much of the juice stain with paper towels if the stain is fresh.
Mix ½ tsp. of liquid detergent soap with 1 qt. warm water in a bucket or small bowl.
Moisten a soft cloth with the soap solution. Wipe the juice stain, allowing the soap to work into the leather.
Scrub the leather using a soft bristled brush or toothbrush to work out the rest of the stain. Carefully work the brush in a back and forth motion following the grain of the leather. Make sure not to apply too much pressure as this will damage the leather.
Reapply the soap solution to the stain. Scrub the leather with a soft bristled brush until the juice stain is completely removed.
