Everyone loves chocolate, except, perhaps, your clothes. But there is no need to give up chocolate, especially when you can get rid of chocolate stains from clothing with these simple tips.
Remove Excess:Scrape off any excess from the garment before rinsing under warm, running water. The higher the water pressure, the easier it will be to remove.
Pour:Pour Tide Ultra Stain Release Liquid directly onto the chocolate stain, and make sure you completely cover it. Pour from either the bottle or the cap.
Pre-treat:Use Tide Ultra Stain Release Liquid Zap! Cap to pre-treat the chocolate stain. The flexible fins of the cap help spread the detergent over the surface of the stain and into the garment’s fibers.
Dose:You can also use the Zap! Cap to ensure you use the right amount of detergent. Just fill it with the correct dose of detergent, and pour it into the detergent dispenser if you have an HE machine, or directly into the drum before loading the clothes if you have a non-HE machine.
Load:Without rinsing off the detergent, place the garment into the washer with other items. Leaving the detergent on the stain will give your wash that extra boost of cleaning power.
Wash:Wash on the usual cycle, on the hottest wash temperature indicated. Always check the instructions on the garment’s care label.
Unload:When the cycle is complete, unload the garments immediately.
If the stain persists after washing, repeat the previous steps before tossing in the dryer, as drying will set the stain.
