For those of you who have ever spilled beet juice on your carpet, beet juice can also be classified as a super stain. In fact, beet juice is so potent that it is used to dye clothing, hair, and can even dye your teeth its characteristic pinkish hue if you drink too much. Thus, one can only imagine the havoc that beet juice can wreak upon some lovely light-colored carpeting.

Tips for preventing beet juice stains in carpet
If you’re juicing, be sure to always put your juices in a cup with a lid. Coffee cups with closing lids are perfect for juices to be transported to carpeted rooms. You should never drink your juice from a basic glass without a lid. Walking through the house with your beautiful beet juice in a glass without a lid is a very bad idea. This is how accidents happen. It’s always better to be safe than sorry, so get yourself a coffee tumbler and protect your carpeting.
Furthermore, if you have children it is imperative that they only drink juice in the kitchen. Cleaning up a spill on tiles or linoleum is a piece of cake compared to a beet juice carpet stain. Your kids will get used to coming into the kitchen to drink their juice and your carpet will thank you.
