How to Remove Ointment Stains
Try out these simple tips to get rid of ointment stains with a helping hand from Tide.
While topical creams and ointments can help out with skin conditions and other issues, they can leave greasy or white residue behind on your clothes.
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.
You can also use the cap to ensure you use the right amount of Tide Plus Febreze Freshness Liquid 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.
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 on the usual cycle, on the hottest wash temperature indicated. Always check the instructions on the garment’s care label.
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.
