Everything was fine until the lid popped off the sippy cup and now there's a bright red stain in the middle of your living room. Instead of finding a piece of furniture to cover it up, keep in mind that these stains are a lot easier to remove than you might have thought. With a little quick thinking and a few things you may already have around the house, red juice stains can be remedied as though they never even happened.

Things You'll Need

  • Clean cloth or paper towels
  • White vinegar
  • Dish soap
  • Spray bottle

Blot up as much of the stain as possible with a cloth or paper towels to remove any excess moisture.

Dab the stain with a clean cloth dipped in warm water.

Mix together white vinegar and water in equal parts in a spray bottle and add two tbsp. of liquid dish soap.

Spray the solution onto the area and allow it to soak for 10 to 15 minutes.

Dab a clean cloth dipped in clear water to rinse the area.

Place a fan nearby to help the carpet dry quicker.

Vacuum the area once it is completely dry to fluff the pile back up.

Tips & Warnings

  • Test this method on an inconspicuous area of the carpet for colorfastness before using it to treat the stain.
