How to Get Chocolate Stains Out of Clothes and Off of Car Seats

How to get chocolate stains off of small faces is easy, but getting chocolate stains out of white shirts is a whole other matter.


How to Get Chocolate Stains Out of Clothes


How to get chocolate stains out of clothes…more particularly, how to get chocolate stains out of a white shirt, white pants, off of non-washable fabric or off of the new car seat are the real questions.

Here are six tips:
1–Act faaaaast!
2–Carefully scrape all excess chocolate off of the fabric before it sets in the fabric.
3–Gently wipe the fabric with a clean cloth soaked in cold water. Better yet, remove the garment from your body and hold the stain area under a running water facet of cold water. Never try to tackle chocolate stains with warm or hot water. Warm or hot water causes chocolate to set.
4–If the stain persists, fill a bowl with cold water and throw in some ice cubes to make it colder. Soak the stain in the cold water, gently rubbing it every five minutes until it comes out.
5–If the stain remains in the garment after working it in this manner, treat it with Shout if at home or Shout Wipes if on the go. Let the Shout ssoak into the stain for 15 minutes or longer before washing the garment. We find Shout almost magical in getting out awful stains.
6–Wash the garment as you would normally, but do a cold water wash and cold water rinse on this load with the stained shirt or pants in it.


Getting Chocolate Out of Non-Washable Garments


1–Check any cleaning tags on the garment before tackling a chocolate stain.
2–Get the stain out of the garment as soon as possible after the accident happens. Don’t put it off until tomorrow!
3–Try rubbing the stain with a clean cloth soaked in cold water. Never use warm or hot water to tackle a chocolate stain because it will cause the stain to set and be impossible to get out.
4–Use Shout or a similar stain removing product if permitted on the garment’s label.


Getting Chocolate Stain Off of a Car Seat or Other Upholstery


1–Deal with the stain as quickly as possible after the accident occurs before the chocolate has time to set in the fibers of the fabric.
2–If you have any “care” labels that came with the upholstery or car seat, read thoroughly before tackling the stain.
3–Gently scrape up any excess chocolate from the stained area, but take care when removing the excess chocolate that you do not further spread the stain to clean areas of the car seat or other upholstery.
3–With all excess chocolate removed, with a damp cloth soaked in cold water, wipe up the stain from the perimeter of the stain toward the center to once again eliminate the possibility of spreading the stain.
4–If the stain is not removed with this method, add a teaspoon of laundry detergent to the cold water you are using to clean the stain.
5–Never apply the detergent undiluted directly to the stain because that will cause its own potential discoloration.

When you want to get serious about reducing your spending or saving money, one critical thing you need is a bottle of Shout by the washer to save clothes, pillows, curtains, rugs and a variety of other stain-attracting fabrics. But if you are serious about protecting your clothes on business trips or caring for young ones when away from home, then you will want to invest in a box of 80 Shout Wipes. Keep them in the baby bag, your car, your knapsack and your suitcase.
