Your 5-step guide to remove a tomato juice stain from carpet

In the UK, the average person eats 6oz of fresh tomatoes each week. This is the equivalent of two classic British tomatoes!

Tomatoes are a great source of vitamins A, C, E and B6. They also contain minerals such as potassium, which is great for lowering blood pressure, and calcium which is vital for strong bones and teeth.

Whether you get your fix through vine tomatoes, pasta sauce or tomato juice, spilling tomato on your carpet can leave an ugly red stain. From Bolognese sauce to ketchup, tomato sauce is one of those foods that can get everywhere!

If you have a tomato spill, don’t panic. Here’s how to remove a tomato juice stain from carpet.
