I have a friend experimenting with sap stain removal using hexane, but I'm not sure how that's going.

Someone ought to market banana sap as a brown clothing dye. If you could push the stems through a roller you could easily get a gallon of sap.

I have thrown a few good clothes in the bin,in the last few years as the banana sap has ruined them

I've had a little luck with 'lime away' or similar rust remover to remove the stains.

Hi Jeffrey,

nothing is more easy than getting fruit stains out of clothing, table cloths etc.:

Place the fabric with the spot over a small dish or bowl, dishing the textile a bit, so that the spot will
be at the bottom of the dished cloth, bring a small amount of water to a boil (a little Pyrex pitcher in
the microwave will do) and pour the water on/through the spot, which will magically disappear in
seconds.

It works for cherry, blueberry, red wine, tomato as well as ketchup and all other fruit stains I have
ever tried it on, no matter if they happened doday or date back a month.

Caveat: I have never been confronted with banana stains (bananas do not drip ), but I do not
see, why it should not work there too, because the procedure does not just remove the red pigment,
but all the other fruit residue as well.

It is save even with cold- and hand-wash items, because you only use it on a small section of the
garment at the time, thus shrinkage does not occur.

I would advice strongly against bleach, even on white fabric, because there are >100 different
shades of white and the one you will end up with is bound to be different from the rest of the
'white' material.

The 'boiling water' thing is completely without risk, unless you pour it over yourself.

Try it and let us know, how you made out.

Best,
Olaf

Have you ever cut a leaf off and seen the clear or whitish liquid come out? If that gets on your clothes they are done for...I've even ruined a knife using it to cut on banana plants and not wipe the juices/sap off.

I have lots of clothing that looks like I murdered someone. Banana sap will stain your hands as well.

In that case you should have one spot, on which you can try my method. I would really like to
know if it works and do it myself, but I have never had a banana (sap) stain.

But don't try it on your hands. The "stains" boiling water generates there are much nastier than
anything bananas can do to you.
