  • Terry cloths

  • Spray bottle

Open windows for ventilation when cleaning. Wear a facemask when applying Borax, as it can cause irritation to mucus membranes. Avoid using Borax if you're pregnant and use it only on adult bedding.

Spilled juice can seep right through the sheets and stain the mattress.

You find yourself in bed watching TV or with a good book and a glass of your favorite juice. Next thing you know you have juice seeping into your sheets and onto the mattress below. Time is of the essence when it comes to spilled juice. Act quickly to reduce the chance of a permanent stain.


Step 1

Quickly remove all sheets and bedding.

Step 2

Use a clean terry cloth to blot up as much juice as you can.

Step 3

Pour hydrogen peroxide into the spray bottle and saturate the juice stain. Leave the hydrogen peroxide on the stain for five to eight minutes.

Step 4

Use a terry cloth to blot up the hydrogen peroxide.

Step 5

Sprinkle baking soda on top of the stain. Allow the baking soda to remain for a few hours, then wipe up with a terry cloth. If a stain remains, proceed to step 5.


Step 6

Sprinkle dry Borax onto the stain. Carefully and lightly rub it into the stain with a terry cloth. Allow it to sit for a few minutes.

Step 7

Wipe down the mattress to remove the Borax, using a damp terry cloth. Allow the mattress to air dry. Repeat these steps as needed until the juice stain is removed.
