You may have heard blueberries referred to as a ‘superfruit’ – they might be small, but they’re absolutely packed full of all sorts of good vitamins that can help us to lead a happy, healthy lifestyle. Blueberries are excellent additions to kids’ diets (especially when made ‘fun’ by blending them into purple-coloured smoothies), and, when chopped into smaller pieces, they’re also great finger foods for weaning babies. Is there anything this superfruit isn’t good at? Sadly, yes – keeping you clean.
Blueberries have a very deep blue, almost purple colour (which makes them very attractive to kids who love the colourful nature of sweets), and this colour can cause big issues if you accidentally get some berry juice onto your clothing. However, it’s not just the colour of the berries that’s the problem, it’s also the sugar content. Blueberries are really healthy, but they do contain a high level of natural sugar. This sugar, when left on clothing, can eventually start to turn yellow, staining your clothes even more. So what’s the trick for removing blueberry stains from clothing?
