would oxy clean get it out? I have had good luck with it. Or I wonder if hydrogen peroxide would work?

:yes Oxyclean has worked great on grape juice for us. Mix some up in a bottle (we used one of my old peri bottles) and put it directly on the stain, then wash it with the oxyclean following the directions on the bucket. We used it on the carpet for a grape juice stain, and it came right out.

Fill your teapot with water and bring it to a brisk oil, then put the outfit in the sink the pour the boiling water on the stain. It takes a lot of water but it works great from our experience! If it doesn't get it first try rub a little soap in while you boil a new batch of water and retry.

:scratch Wouldn't that set the stain, though? I always thought hot water set stains... Does that work for just grape juice?

That's what I thought until I was making strawberry jam and spattered a new light colored shirt. Google told me to use boiling water on fruit juice stains and it works great. We've had luck with lots of berry stains, grape juice, and wine stains.

:yes It works great for fruit juice stains. THe biggest issue is if the fabric is o.k. with the boiling water - some delicate stuff might not hold up to it.
