  • The only thing I have found to get stains out of wood was a magic eraser with a lot of elbow grease.

  • Remove Berry Stains From:

    Mix dishwashing detergent in hot water and swish to make a great volume of suds. Dip a cloth in only the foam and apply to berry stain. Rinse with a clean cloth dampened with clear water. If any stain remains, rub the area with a cloth dampened in a solution of 1 tablespoon oxalic acid to 1 pint water. Rinse well and wipe dry. Wax or polish as soon as possible. Caution: oxalic acid is poisonous; use with care and wear rubber gloves.

    Berry stains can be stubborn, but these suggestions are sweet solutions to removing them for good.
