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

Good news - I successfully removed banana sap stains from a white t-shirt today! The stain had dried and set and I tried pre-wash and bleach in a regular load of laundry without success. Found this forum and figured I'd try some of your suggestions. Whink rust remover lightened the stain about halfway. Borax and hydrogen peroxide did nothing. What finally did the job was Softscrub with bleach and an old toothbrush. Covered the stain with Softscrub and let it sit for a few minutes, then scrubbed lightly with the toothbrush until the stain was gone, rinsed and laundered normally. No more brown stain! Not sure if using Whink first did something to the stain or if the Softscrub would work alone. I'd only try this on white fabric of course. Hope this helps somebody reclaim a favorite shirt.....

Nana tie dye, tried it this year. With a little practice I may get better. You only get one color though and it takes awhile to get enough juice to cover a large area.

You should consider making & selling t-shirts like that! I bet a lot of banana plant enthusiasts would love it! Looks pretty cool by the way!

That isn't anything but the nature of Banana Juice. It permanently alters White Fabric to brown for life. It could be interior car grey fabric and get hit by banana peel and it does basically the same thing. Now if Banana juice could get rid of grey hair you could be a Millionaire.. lol

Trimmed some plants before taking them to the basement and thought why not. Not necessary carefully.

Joy Re: Hazards of Banana Juice

Just yesterday I was finally getting around to cutting down and winterizing the basjoo plants outdoors. I just threw on my outfit I use to work outside in. I looked down at my shirt. There were some really weird stains on it. I just cleaned the other day after I wore them to dig up other banana plants. Anyway, I couldnít figure it out and then all of a sudden it dawned on me! I remembered this thread! I then was like OMG! The weird stains are banana juice! No wonder the stains are still there! I just stood there and was lmao! Just thought someone would get a kick out of that! If it wasnít for this thread I swear I would not have known what the stains could be possibly be! So thanks!
