Everyone loves chocolate and eats it every day which means one thing – everyone also deals with chocolate stains on their clothes. Either you weren’t too careful and you touched your shirt while your fingers were covered in chocolate or you accidentally dropped some, it really doesn’t matter. What matters is for you to learn how to properly remove the stains!
How to Remove Chocolate Stains From Your Clothes?
Of course, the first thing you are going to have to do is remove as much of the chocolate as possible. I like to use a spoon and scoop up the excess because that way I do not rub or wipe the area and drive the chocolate further into the fabric as well as smear it and make an even bigger mess.
Then you should damp a sponge in cold water and gently blot the area so you can continue removing the excess. Now is the time to also treat the area – either use a stain remover if you have one at home or apply a bit of your laundry detergent and rub it into the area with your fingers. Let it sit for a few minutes before you rinse it with cold water.
In case the stain still remains, you need to use oxygen bleach or hydrogen peroxide on the area. I prefer the first product but I know that some of you don’t have it so in this case go for the hydrogen peroxide.
Dilute the product you will use in cold water and then submerge the clothing item in it. It has to soak for a few hours – the longer it sits, the better. If the stain looks really bad, I recommend even leaving it overnight.
And the next morning simply checks whether the stain is removed – and if it is, throw the clothing item in your washing machine and wash as usual. If the stain persists, repeat all the steps from the beginning.
