Summer is the perfect time to enjoy vitamin- and antioxidant-packed fruits as they come into season. Cherries, for example, are a source of fibre, potassium, calcium, vitamin A and folic acid. Cherry juice’s high polyphenol content may even help reduce blood pressure. However healthy cherries and cherry juice are, their ability to leave serious stains are a definite downside. Here are our carpet cleaning tips for tackling cherry stains and other red fruit spills with carpet spot cleaner.
