Removing Beetroot Stains :

Beetroot is a delicious and healthy addition to so many great roasts, burgers, and salads - but it’s also famous for staining all kinds of everyday fabrics bright pink. In fact, it’s that bright red colour that looks so good in our food that is responsible for so many pink stains. The best way to remove beetroot stains is to do it quickly - but sometimes, we don’t always notice that bright pink spot until well after the stain occurred. But there is no need to panic, even if you need to know how to remove dried beetroot stains.
