Blot up as much of the juice as possible. Then combine one tablespoon of liquid laundry detergent (use one-half tablespoon if the laundry detergent is high concentrate), one and one-half tablespoons of distilled white vinegar and two cups of water. Gently work the mixture into the fruit-juice stain, and then blot dry. If the stain has sat for longer than an hour or two, you may need to scrub the spot well, rinse, and then reapply the solution. If you think your rug’s dyes may be finicky, test this method on a small, inconspicuous spot first to make sure it doesn’t fade or smear.
