Alix, Im pretty sure that once you dry the stain, your hooped. A quick and stupid story. I had red paint on a yellow shirt, it went through the dryer. I tried many things, nothing worked. Dumb me thought about using a yellow highlighter pen Hey, it could work right? It might cover it up and be permanent Ok, so it highlighted the stain even more What was I thinking

I looked online and found that a paste of water and cream of tartar, rubbed onto the stain and left for at least 30 minutes then rinsed off, is supposed to work with dried on fruit stains. They also said you can soften it with glycerine first. Good luck.

If none of these ideas work (and I hope one does!) there is one last resort. You have to use your credit card to get rid of the stain.




Ok, it isn't actually that simple--there are a couple steps to this process.




First you toss the stained item in the trash, then you get in your car and drive to the mall, and finally you pull your credit card out and buy a new one.

Good luck with the other methods. But before you begin combining methods, remember the movie "The Incredible Shrinking Woman!"
