Removing Thanksgiving Stains

Do you wan the good news or the bad news?  The good news is that the Thanksgiving holiday is coming VERY soon.  The bad news, is that when we eat tons of food, we also often stain our clothing.

The three worst stains of Thanksgiving – and how to remove them.

Thanksgiving can leave you with some tough stains on your clothes. Here’s the rundown of the top 3 toughest stains and tips on how to remove them.

It’s Thanksgiving and Americans are celebrating with family and friends. But after Thanksgiving, a lot of people realize that they are left with some very tough stains on their clothes.
“Thanksgiving is lovely, but it can prove dangerous for our clothes because of the Thanksgiving meal,” says Leigh Murphy, scientist at Novozymes.

Leigh Murphy knows what he is talking about. Being a scientist, he works to develop enzymes for use in laundry detergents, where they help to remove stains. Each year, he examines thousands of different stains.

“The toughest Thankgiving stains are gravy, cranberry and pumpkin. But luckily, good washing advice and having a stain removal system in place, will help to get clothes fully clean,” says Leigh Murphy.

To get a better sense on what matters when Americans do the laundry, a YouGov analysis polled more than 1000 respondents.

The survey found that stains are still the main pain. 52% of the respondents stated that stains are the most important factor when doing the laundry. Basically, people just want to get that stain out immediately. In fact, nearly half of US moms will wash a blouse three or more times to get a stain out.

The three worst stains:

Gravy: Rub a small amount of liquid dishwashing soap into the fabric. Rinse and pretreat the stain with a laundry stain remover – launder.

Cranberry: Flush the stained area with cool water, make a solution of half a teaspoon of liquid laundry detergent, mixed with a tablespoon of white vinegar, and a quart of cool water. Let the stained fabric soak in this solution for about 15 minutes. Rinse and launder.

Pumpkin: Remove any excess pumpkin pulp, and run the fabric, inside out, under the cold water to flush out as much of the stain as possible. Pretreat the stain with a laundry remover. Launder.
