Removing Tomato Sauce Stains

How to get tomato sauce out of a white jacket? I just got a white winter jacket for Christmas and have just recently acquired a huge stain all over it from someone throwing tomato sauce from a lunch kit on it. i don't believe I can use bleach because it will take away the weather proofing. what works, or what should i do?

The sun works best on tomato stains, as a previous poster said, and it is free! (01/17/2007)

For tomato stains, try pouring boiling water over the stain (just not while you're wearing it!!!). My mom has used this for years with great success. (01/18/2007)

There is a product called "Spray Nine" which can be purchased in most hardware stores. While it has cautions on the label against using it on material, I have been using it for upwards of 12 years on everything, without harm to any material and the removal of most stains, including gum, wine, tomato ketchup, magic marker (almost). The only thing I have not been able to remove with it is the pollen from the flower of my hibiscus bush on a white sweatshirt. In that case, I used "Oops! -- another product I could never live without. If you have concerns before trying it on your garment, may I suggest you put the same stain on a similar piece of scrap material first. Hope this helps! (02/26/2007)

To remove the tomato stain right after it appears requires a two-part process. First cover the stain with talcum powder. Why? It lifts the oil out of the shirt. One hour later, brush off the powder and clean the shirt with Oxyclean or a common laundry detergent and you're done.

Oxiclean contains hydrogen peroxide so you can just use Oxiclean for cleaning laundry etc where hydrogen peroxide is recommended. You can find it available at grocery, hardware stores, etc. I was reading that hydrogen peroxide was best for cleaning the deck and doesn't damage plants. Could not find it in large enough amounts for the deck any where so I researched further and found that Oxiclean is reputed to be composed of about 60% sodium percarbonate. The percarbonate anion is basically a 1:1 mixture of carbonate anion ((CO3)2-, the active ingredient in washing soda) and hydrogen peroxide (H2O2). When it is dissolved in water it creates a solution containing both carbonate and H2O2.May 21, 2013
