How to Remove Orange Juice Stains from a Raincoat.

We all know the benefits of Orange Juice whether it comes from the natural form of an orange or from the processed form as concentrated juice. We also know there is no benefit to wearing the juice unless you are Lady GaGa creating a new fashion statement. What ever the reason if you have an orange juice stain that needs to be removed then follow the instructions bellow.


In a hidden area test the garment for colorfastness. Use a white towel, apply the spotting solution desired to the towel and blot the hidden area. Check the towel for color transfer.


Liquid laundry detergent is a great product to use as a pre spotter.

White Distilled Vinegar that you have in your kitchen is a great product to use as a spotting agent for tannin (plant and fruit base) stains. Generally vinegar is safe for most materials and colors.


If we are not achieving the results desired, then we will need to resort to a stronger product. Enzymes stain removers are a great stain removal product that is generally safe for most materials and colors. Enzyme stain removers can be found in the laundry department of most grocery stores or in pet stores.

For a large stained area or garments with sensitive dye it is best to soak the entire garment is the spotting solution of choice. This will help ensure even discoloration if it occurs.

Done Yet?

Whether this was a Lady GaGa fashion statement or an accidental orange juice spill clean the entire garment as recommended by the care label. Never leave garments unclean after using spotting or cleaning products. Over time the spotting agent can discolor, or yellow, and weaken the material.
