I love raspberries. The variety I grow fruits in the spring and again in the autumn. I was in Australia last week and the autumn crop is at its perfect ripeness. As much as I love them though, I hate it when someone gets the juice on my beautiful linen placemats and napkins.
This time, however, I got the stains out right away with lemon juice. Who knew? If you knew and didn’t tell me, it would hurt my feelings. My friend Chris was at the dinner and when she saw the stain on her husband’s placemat she told me to wipe the stain and then rub the stain with lemon juice and toss it in the washer. I was skeptical but I was moving out in a few days and didn’t want to buy anything new to have to throw away. I still had lemons on the trees so I picked a few and juiced them and put it on the stain.
The placemat looks brand new. I didn’t take a photo for you, sorry. I was thinking about where I could find a replacement placemat.
Do you have stain remedies you want to share?
