My daughter loves cherries and messes. After leaving the cherry stains to soak into her shirt for a day, I was having a very hard time getting the stains out. I tried the boiling water trick, stain remover, and salt. In the end, I poured vinegar on the stains, rubbed the shirt together and, no more stains!

Boiling water. Just pour on cherry juice and like magic the stain disappears.

I got a cherry stain on a favorite white shirt. What can I use to get the stain out? Thanks!

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)

I tried lemon juice and vinegar - no luck. Boiling water flushed the stain out immediately. (08/05/2008)

I tried scrubbing with soapy water, and it didn't even make a dent! Then I tried boiling water...PRESTO! I can't wait for someone else to get cherry stains so I can save the day! (08/17/2008)

Boiling water works fantastically! Just soak it in boiling water for a while. I dropped a cherry, which rolled down the front of my shirt (huge purple line)! Had a client meeting in two hours and no other clothes. Now just need to find an iron! Thanks (02/12/2009)
