Thanksgiving Day is approaching and Leigh Murphy, scientist at Novozymes, offers three tips to get rid of stains.

Leigh works to develop enzymes for use in laundry detergents. Each year, he examines thousands of different stains.

“The toughest Thankgiving stains are gravy, cranberry and pumpkin. But luckily, good washing advice and having a stain removal system in place, will help to get clothes fully clean.”

How to treat the three worst stains:

Gravy: Rub a small amount of liquid dishwashing soap into the fabric. Rinse and pretreat the stain with a laundry stain remover – launder.

Cranberry: Flush the stained area with cool water, make a solution of half a teaspoon of liquid laundry detergent, mixed with a tablespoon of white vinegar, and a quart of cool water. Let the stained fabric soak in this solution for about 15 minutes. Rinse and launder.

Pumpkin: Remove any excess pumpkin pulp, and run the fabric, inside out, under the cold water to flush out as much of the stain as possible. Pretreat the stain with a laundry remover. Launder.
