Acai berries grow on the wild palmberry tree native to Brazil. The acai berry is high in nutrients, antioxidants. Like other juices, acai can drip and splatter onto clothing and carpet. Fortunately, you can remove acai juice stains with the help of a few common and inexpensive household items.
Hold the article of clothing under cool, running water to rinse the acai juice stain off. Place the article of clothing on a flat surface with the juice stain facing up.
Fill a small container with 2 cups of cool water and 1 tbsp. of liquid dish soap. Mix the contents with a spoon. Dip a white cloth in the mixture.
Blot the acai juice stain with the saturated cloth. Begin blotting the outer edge of the stain and work toward the center.
Continue blotting the stain until all the liquid is absorbed. If needed, saturate the cloth in the mixture and continue blotting until the acai juice stain disappears.
Rub pre-wash stain remover directly on the area of clothing affected by the juice stain. Allow the pre-wash stain remover to soak into the clothing for 15 minutes.
Launder the item in cold water. If the stain remains after washing, submerge the garment in a bucket filled with 2 cups cold water and 3 cups white vinegar. Allow the clothing to soak overnight before laundering again in cold water.
Blot the excess acai juice with several paper towels. Stop when dry paper towels no longer absorb any juice.
Fill a small container with 2 cups of warm water. Add 1 tbsp. of ammonia to the water and mix with a spoon.
Saturate a clean, white cloth in the mixture. Wring out the excess liquid.
Blot the acai juice stain with the cloth. Start at the edge of the stain and work your way toward the center. Continue blotting until the stain disappears.
Blot the carpet with a clean cloth dampened in cool water. Pat the carpeting dry with a towel.
