Show the cranberry sauce who’s boss this year

Yes, that time of year is rolling around again; that delicious state of chaos when the family descends, the turkey starts browning, the drinks start flowing, and the kitchen is all systems go.

Whether you’re a grown up family of adults or got a flock of messy kids running around, there’s a whole host of Thanksgiving accidents just waiting to happen.

This year, have no fear: we’ve got Handy Thanksgiving stain solutions on hand to deal with them when they do!

1. Sweet Potato

Scrape off the remaining mash with a knife and run the fabric under cold water. Apply a small amount of dishwashing soap and rinse. Treat with laundry detergent including enzymes and soak in cold water for 30 minutes. Finally wash on the hottest setting allowed for the fabric.

2. Gravy

Apply a small amount of dishwashing soap and rinse. Treat with prewash stain remover and launder in the hottest setting for the fabric. Check the stain was removed before putting in the dryer. If not, repeat the process.

3. Cranberry Sauce

Rinse with cold water and soak for 15 minutes in a solution of 1/2 teaspoon liquid laundry detergent, 1 tablespoon of white vinegar, and a quart of cool water. Rinse in cold water then wash at the highest setting for the fabric.

4. Mac & Cheese

Pre-treat or soak using laundry detergent containing enzymes. Soak new stains for 30 minutes and older stains for several hours. Launder as normal.

5. Pumpkin Pie

Scrape off excess pumpkin. Apply stain pre-treatment containing enzymes and massage in with your fingers. Leave for several hours then scrub gently with a brush. Apply laundry detergent, scrub gently, and launder as normal on the hottest cycle for the fabric.
