Question: How do I remove pumpkin stains from clothes?
Pumpkin is an easy to remove vegetable stain until you combine it with eggs, milk or cream to make those pumpkin pies. So carve your Jack-O-Lantern or enjoy every bite and don't worry about the stains!
Answer:

First, use a dull knife or a spoon to remove any excess pumpkin from your garment. As soon as possible, flush the stain with cold water. Pretreat the stained area with a prewash stain remover and launder as usual. Check the stained area before putting the garment in the dryer because high heat can set the stain. Repeat the treatment steps.

If the garment is dry clean only, point out and identify the stain to your professional cleaner. If you are using a home dry cleaning kit, be sure to treat the stain with the provided stain remover before putting the garment in the dryer bag.
