Thanksgiving Stain Removal Guide

The holiday season is officially upon us, and here at Roux Maison, we could not be more excited. The first big holiday of the season is now just days away: Thanksgiving. There’s really nothing better than sitting down with family and friends to celebrate all of life’s blessings while eating all the best kinds of food. But as we all know, with great food come lots of stains.

We’ve all been there. You’re having a wonderful meal full of laughter and great conversation when all of sudden, Uncle Andy drops the gravy boat on top of the spoon for the cranberries, smearing gravy and cranberries all over your best white table cloth. And to top it all off, your niece has been spreading sweet potatoes all over her dress for the past ten minutes.

After you calm yourself down, reminding yourself that you love your family and no amount of spilled food is bad enough to kick them out of your kitchen, remember to turn to your trusted friends at Roux Maison. In just a few minutes, we’ll have all those holiday food stains cleaned up and you can get back to feasting!

Gravy Stains

Those gravy stains may look menacing, but they’re actually pretty easy to treat. So there’s not reason to panic. Just follow these simple steps and your tablecloth will be good as new!

  • Scrape off excess gravy. Trying to treat a stain while it is still saturated with the perpetrator can cause stains to cling harder to fabric.
  • Work a drop of liquid dish soap into the stain
  • Flush the area with cold water, starting from the back of the fabric and then the front if you can still see gravy grease
  • Add a few drops of Roux Maison Stain Remover to the affected area
  • Wash in HOT water (or the warmest the fabric will allow)
  • If the stain is particularly bad, use one of our natural bleach alternatives to keep your tablecloth looking bright and white
  • Hang dry

Cranberry Stains

Few things look more hopeless than cranberry stains. The deep red seeping into your white tablecloth is enough to make you burst into tears. But with Roux Maison, you won’t even have time to tear up before the stain is gone before your eyes!

  • Flush stained area with cool water to remove any excess liquid
  • Mix ½ tablespoon of Roux Maison Delicate Detergent with 1 tablespoon of white vinegar in a bucket or sink of cold water.
  • Soak the affected area in the water for about 15 minutes
  • Rinse with cold water
  • Wash as usual with Roux Maison Delicate Detergent in HOT water
  • Hang dry

Sweet Potato Stains

Don’t let sweet potato stains sour your holiday cheer! Just follow these easy steps to get those stains out in a flash!

  • Scrape off excess sweet potatoes.
  • Flush the area with cold water from the back of the fabric
  • Add a few drops of Roux Maison Stain Remover to the affected area
  • Wash in HOT water (or the warmest the fabric will allow)
  • Hang dry

Stains happen to everyone, but they don’t have to ruin your holiday! With the help of Roux Maison, you can treat these common stains and still have time for pumpkin pie! Happy Thanksgiving!
