It’s well known that the red pigment in ketchup leaves some pretty hard-to-remove stains, basically impossible to remove. Yesterday I saw my brother, fighting with the ketchup bottle, squeezing it tight, when it was obvious that it was empty. But do you know that final splash? Well, know he does too, because it didn’t jump on the pizza slice, and it went directly on those white walls, table, clothes…ME, everywhere! I said, well done bro! Let’s clean the mess before your wife arrives home. So, we tried the below solutions which turned out in being extremely effective, and all ketchup traces were completely gone!
Remove ketchup stains on clothes
Strong ketchup pigments leave behind yellowish spots, if you wash your clothes only with laundry detergent.
But, if you rub well the ketchup stain with lemon juice or hydrogenated water, several times, the ketchup stain will be completely gone. Then you can wash it the washer.
Remove ketchup up walls
If you stained the walls or furniture, just act immediately, and rub the stains with a clean soft dish sponge soaked in water and dish soap. That’s it! the stains are gone!
Remove ketchup on carpets
This requires time! You have to leave the ketchup stains to dry, and then easily remove it with a sharp knife. Then, use a fork or a carpet brush to clean well between the carpet fibers.
Pour white vinegar over the stain and dab easily with a sponge until the red stains are removed. Then rinse the area with cold water.
