Question:

How to remove orange juice from my rug?

My daughter has dropped a cup of quot;florida's natural orange juicequot; on the living room rug. Is as if my rug has been bleached.

Answer:

If it has removed the color, you cannot fix that. Do you happen to have a piece of that rug left over? If so, you can replace the section in your rug that has been damaged by actually carefully cutting out a piece and replacing it with another. If you have some of the rug, just make sure you keep the direction of the pile the same in the piece you insert. I have done this to remove a stain ifrom a new rug and the piece was still there and unnoticeable years later when I sold the house.

The acid probably killed the pigment in the wool. I don't think there's anything you can do now. Sorry about the rug. Next time douse it with water.
