How To Get Rid Of Ice Cream Stains
15 May, 2013
Although delicious, ice cream can get messy, so make sure you are prepared. Here are the best tips from the Institute of Home Science to get out ice cream stains out.
- Start by wiping away as much of the ice cream as possible, taking care not to push the stain further into the fibers of the fabric.
- Rinse the garment with cool water to dilute the stain.
- Soak the garment in a solution of cool water and detergent for up to 30 minutes, or longer if needed.
- Squeeze out the excess water, then wash as usual using the warmest water safe for the garment while utilizing the Maytag PowerWash™ Cycle. A bit of liquid detergent rubbed into the stain prior to washing, or the use of a pretreatment or color safe bleach could help with removal.
- Check the garment at the end of the cycle to be sure the stain is removed before drying.
- If needed, repeat the process.
