Default Hazards of Banana Juice

Have had spots on some clothes before, but got it good this year. Cutting off leaves this year I think I got too much juice on my shirt. I usually cut the leaves and let them full, but I was holding a few before tossing them to the pile. When I took my shirt out of the washer I saw that I got dripped on more than I thought. Yes banana juice stains clothes.

Yeah. When I give farm tours I will cut leaves off to show people stamps. One of my white shirts is almost completely covered in stamps. I also like to show visitors how Fe'i will bleed purple, sometimes cutting the entire stem down to get a large stamp.

I have never tested it but a friend Morgan says that if you keep the shirt wet, never let the banana juice dry, it will not stain. He suggested having a 5-gal bucket of water to drop the shirt into. Might be worth a trial if I ever got juice on a good shirt. Normally I wear my "banana" shirt which is old and has stains.

That may work, but like you I wear clothes that if not already have had stains, paint, grease or rips I'm not worried if they get that way.

I think about taking a shirt and carefully marking it with the spirals of a freshly cut PS, on purpose. New fad? I got the idea from a shirt I accidentally got a partial spiral on. It's been washed many times, still as dark as the first time.

It even stains concrete and the stains persist with bleach or power washing.

I got some on a cutting board,,,soaked it in bleach several times, even straight bleach... Scrubbed with a brush and scratch pad...Ran thru the dishwasher many times... Still there. I find it hard to believe science hasn't come up with a few uses for this stuff.

Banana Oil. Most people only have access to the banana peel, so I wounder if the leaf stems or pstem could be used too.

I lightened a set banana stain with sodium bisulfite which is a reducing bleach. But, it did not completely remove the stain. See
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bleach#Reducing_bleaches

It may be worth trying a stronger reducing bleach such as sodium dithionite. This product is 30% sodium dithionite:

Something it try for sure, for a lot of other stains also. But this shirt I may try sputinc7's idea and stain some spirals and see what happens.

There is a company that sells banana latex. I have lost their information, but basically they harvest the entire plant, smash it and put it into 50 gallon drums. People use it as a natural ailment for all kinds of stuff. It's a pretty wild process
