Hot chocolate is perfect when the cold nights draw in. When your sweet tooth calls, your hot chocolate tastes even better with marshmallows and whipped cream! While the drink is luscious and sweet, it can be messy when it lands on your clothes by accident. Luckily, we are no strangers to tackling stains. In this blog, we’ll explain how to remove hot chocolate stains from your clothes!
Step One: Treat The Stain Immediately
Chocolate does contain oil and fat and because there is milk in it, it can be tricky to remove.
To effectively remove hot chocolate stains, you need to immediately treat them as soon as you notice them. Make sure you keep the stain wet by dabbing it with a wet cloth because it will be more stubborn to remove if it gets dry.
Step Two: Rinse and Pour Liquid Detergent
Secondly, rinse your garment in lukewarm water and pre-treat the stain by pouring laundry detergent on it. Let it sit for 30 minutes so it can properly settle.
Step Three: Launder The Garment
After you’ve treated the stain and rinsed it, you can now think about starting the washing machine cycle. Before you begin laundering, make sure your washing machine temperature is at 30 degrees because this setting will remove hot chocolate stains better.
Step Four: Dry Your Garment
Once your washing cycle has ended, inspect your garment to see if the stain has disappeared. If it has, you can air-dry your garment.
Life is definitely sweeter when you know how to tackle stubborn stains!
