Beetroot stain

Step 1: Pre-treating the stain

When it comes to removing beetroot stains, the first step is crucial. Begin by gently scraping off any excess beetroot from the surface of the fabric. This helps prevent the stain from spreading further into the material or carpet fibres. Remember, it's important not to rub the stain, as this can make it more difficult to remove. Instead, focus on gently removing any visible beetroot remnants – there’s no need to try and work deeper into the stain at this point. By taking this initial step, you'll be setting yourself up for success in getting rid of those stubborn beetroot stains.

Step 2: Rinse the stained area

After pre-treating the beetroot stain, it's time to move on to the next step: rinsing the stained area. This step is crucial in preventing the stain from setting in and becoming even more difficult to remove. Start by running cold water over the stain, allowing it to flush out as much of the beetroot juice as possible. Be sure to rinse from the back of the fabric or carpet to push the stain outwards – this will help to minimise any further spreading of the stain. By thoroughly rinsing the area, you'll be one step closer to successfully removing that stubborn beetroot stain.
