Try Oxyclean laundry stain remover. It worked well on pickled beet juice that I got on a yellow shirt. Also, if the fabric will take chlorine bleach, you could soak it in a solution of bleach and water. Good Luck! (07/13/2005)
Fruit stains are easy to get out! Stretch the fabric over a big bowl and pour boiling water over the unwashed stain. It will come out as if by magic and not harm your fabric. Bonne chance! (01/06/2006)
I tried the boiling water suggestion on my cherry stain. Worked like a charm! I had used stain remover previously and it didn't work.
Thanks again. Much appreciated. (07/25/2006)

I just dropped a couple of cherries on my favorite T-shirt and I used liquid stain remover, cold water, soap, and nothing. I almost gave up, and then I pour some LEMON JUICE and it was magical! (06/29/2008)
Boiling water did absolutely nothing for me!
You saved my day and a beautiful pant set I wore today for the first time! The BOILING WATER DID IT!

None of these worked for my cherry stain. I don't know what the difference is. I did finally try everything but the kitchen sink and the things that reduced the stain the most were the hydrogen peroxide, the lemon juice, and a stain remover called Mary Ellen's "For Those Days" menstrual stain remover. Go figure!
