That red stain on your clean, white shirt almost feels like the ketchup bottle was trying to say something. Red for danger! Leave it to Tide to show you how to remove ketchup stains in a few easy steps.
Remove Excess:Wipe off any excess from the garment. Run cold water through the back of the stain.
Pre-treat:Pour Tide Ultra Stain Release Liquid directly onto the stain and rub the fabric together gently or use a soft-bristled toothbrush to work the detergent into the fibers of the fabric. Let it sit for 5 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.
