Banana is a delicious fruit that will bring great benefits to your body. It is easy to eat, good for regular toilet visits, and high in potassium. However, when it falls on our clothes and stains, it becomes a real headache.
If there are stains that are difficult to remove, the banana will be very difficult. Whether it’s breakfast or a snack, you need to be careful not to have an accident that forces you to deal with a banana stain.
What will you need
- laundry detergent
Here are some tips so that you can get rid of it and not wear the shirt or pants that suffered the stain:
First of all, you need to act quickly. Once the stain appears, you should try to get rid of it immediately. The longer it takes you to act, the less chance you have of success
The first step we recommend is to remove the banana pieces with a teaspoon, fork, or your hand if you don’t have another. Dip the garment in cold, or better yet, hot water (if possible) and make sure that there are no more pieces of banana.
It is important that you double-check the label before doing this step. Check that your garment can be washed with hot water and bleach. If you’re not at risk of damaging it, soak the garment in warm water with a little bleach.
Otherwise, change your strategy if your garment is made from a delicate fabric that cannot be washed with hot water or chlorine. Turn it over and rinse inside out with cold water so the water “pushes out” the stain. If the garment needs dry cleaning it is time to go to one and explain your problem to the manager.
If you’d rather continue at home, find a stain remover and apply it to the garment. Try filling the area of the stain with the cleaning fluid. Soak the garment in hot or cold water for 30 minutes.
Prepare the washing machine for washing while the garment is soaked. If allowed, add hot water, bleach, and regular detergent. If not, just use cold water and detergent.
After washing the piece, check to see if the stain is gone. If not, you can repeat the process. Then put it in the sun to dry. This is a natural bleach and can help remove stains from clothing.
If some of your furniture was stained during the accident too, you can clean them to avoid staining.
Take some dish soap and mix it with cold water. Soak a damp towel in this mixture.
Clean the stained area with light touches. Do not scrub or rub as this could enlarge the stain. If you’d rather use a sponge you can. Repeat until the stain disappears.
Then pat the damp area dry with a dry towel. You can soak the towel to make sure it is soaked in soap. If you find the stain turning brown, you can use a little vinegar to clean it off.
