What’s your favorite: Ribs, steak or hot dogs? If you’re not careful, your t-shirt will reveal the answer. But Tide will be your favorite when it comes to getting rid of stubborn BBQ sauce stains.
Wet a cloth with cold water and blot the stain. If available, use Tide to Go Instant Stain Remover.
- Remove the excess residue from the stain.
- Press the tip of the Tide to Go Instant Stain Remover onto the stain several times to release some of the stain remover solution.
- Rub the tip gently across the stain to remove it. If necessary, add more liquid and continue to rub gently.
- Important: If the treated area is exposed to direct sunlight, then wipe with a damp cloth or a napkin to remove excess solution.
Remove Excess:Brush off any excess from the garment before rinsing under cold, running water. The higher the water pressure, the easier it will be to remove.
Pre-treat:Apply Tide Ultra Stain Release Liquid directly onto the stain. Use either a soft-bristled toothbrush to help spread the detergent into the fibers of the garment or rub the fabric together gently and let it sit for 5-10 minutes.
Dose:Use the cap to ensure you use the right amount 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.
