We love Taco Tuesday as much as anyone, but when the crunch of your taco shell sends a clump of guacamole directly onto your lap, it can really take the fun out of your fiesta. And, because avocados have a higher fat content than other fruits and veggies, you'll need specific advice on how to get avocado stains out of clothes. Luckily, Tide has you covered with avocado stain removal tips and advice on how to remove guacamole stain deposits like a pro.
Remove Excess:Use a spoon or fork to remove excess guacamole. Then turn the garment inside out and rinse the back of the stain with cold water.
Pre-treat:Pre-treat with Tide Ultra Stain Release Liquid. Pour the detergent directly onto the stain, then use a soft-bristled toothbrush to help spread the detergent into the garment’s fibers or rub the fabric together gently. Let it sit for 5-10 minutes, and rinse the garment again.
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.
Wash:Wash in the warmest water the garment's care label allows.
Unload:When the wash cycle is complete, unload the garments immediately.
If your stain persists after washing, repeat the previous steps before tossing clothes into the dryer, as the heat from the dryer will set the stain.
