How to Remove Mulberry Stains

Berry stains provide an endless amount of frustration. No matter how careful you are when you pick them or cook with them, small splashes inevitably appear on clothing. And mulberry trees, long considered a weed tree, may shed the bright purple fruits at inopportune times and scatter them about in places where gardeners and children may accidentally kneel on them and grind them into their clothing. Fortunately, because mulberry stains are plant-based, natural ingredients work best to remove them.

Removing Mulberry Stains from Clothing

Step 1

Saturate. Immediately saturate the stained area of the cloth with white vinegar.

Step 2

Wait. Wait 15 to 30 minutes to allow the vinegar to loosen the stain.

Step 3

Blot. Blot the stain well with the sponge to lift as much of the berry pigment from the fabric as possible.

Step 4

Repeat. Repeat the saturation and blotting processes as necessary until the majority of the stain disappears.

Step 5

Launder. Launder the garment as usual.
