How to Remove Cranberry Sauce or Apple Cider

On table linens: Remove anything solid with a spoon and run the fabric under cold water—do this as soon as you can. Spritz with Tide Boost Pre-Treat spray, then wash in the warmest water safe for the fabric, using bleach if the fabric allows.

On the rug: Use a spoon to scrape off anything solid. For wool, use a cloth to blot with cold water, then treat with WoolClean Spot Remover No. 1. For a synthetic rug, apply diluted dish soap; let sit for 5 to 10 minutes. If the stain is gone, rinse, then dry with paper towels. If the stain is not removed (and you're still dedicated to the cause), blot on a solution of ½ cup hydrogen peroxide and 1 teaspoon ammonia. Let stand for 2 to 3 hours, covered with plastic wrap and weighted with something heavy. Rinse with water, then apply white vinegar to the place the stain had been and blot with a damp cloth; dry with paper towels.
