For getting everything to stick together, glue has its uses, but one of them should not be staining your clothes. It’s not a lost cause if you accidentally get glue on your clothes if you try out these tricks to remove glue stains with a little help from Tide. First, consult the glue packaging for any specific removal instructions. If there are no instructions, follow the steps below.
Remove Excess:Scrape off any excess from the garment with a fork or a butter knife, being careful not to tear the fabric.
Soak:Soak the garment in cold water for 20 minutes, then remove any glue that has loosened. Repeat this step until no additional glue can be removed.
Dose:Use the cap to ensure you use the right amount of Tide Ultra Stain Release Liquid 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.
Wash:Place the garment into the washer with other items. 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 remains, repeat steps 2-5 before drying.
