Stain Removal: Grape Juice on Butcher Block

Thanks for Sharing!

A couple weeks ago I had taken our oldest to the doctor.  Mr. DS had picked up the other two kiddos from school and one of kiddos (whose name will be withheld to protect the little monkey  😉  ) had poured some grape juice to drink and had accidentally left a grape juice puddle.  No one noticed it until I came home a couple of hours later… after the stain damage had been done.  After my initial horror… I started brain storming on what I could use to try to remove the dreaded grape juice stain.
