Pomegranates are known as a 'superfood' — and for good reason. Packed with antioxidants, fibre and vitamins, this fruit is good for the heart and great at keeping inflammation at bay.

Unfortunately, the bright colour of pomegranate juice makes it a difficult stain to remove. We consulted our experts at the GHI to give you the best chance of lifting it.

General directions

Your best chance of success is to try immersing the affected item in a biological pre-soaking agent before washing. Usually, we advise against using this kind of product on silk or wool, but in this case, the pomegranate stain will ruin the item if you do nothing!

If that doesn't work, soaking in a colour-safe, oxygen-based bleaching product like Ace Gentle Stain Remover or Vanish Gold Oxi Action Powder may shift the stain. Always check instructions for use.

Remember: pomegranate juice has been used as a natural dye for centuries, so it's always best to be cautious of spills when you drink or cook with it.
