In summer season everyone loves to enjoy a big comb of ice cream out in the park. But sometimes the sun melts the ice cream too fast and that’s when stain accidents happen. In this article we’ll give you some advice on how to deal with fresh and old ice cream stains.
Many experts that offer deep cleaning services advise that you treat all stains as soon as possible.
First thing to do when you soil your clothes with ice cream is to put the stained fabric in a wash basin filled with cold water. Leave it to soak for 5-10 minutes. Take out the clothing from the wash basin and see if the stain is still present. If it’s still there fill a wash basin with room temperature water. Rub some liquid laundry detergent into the stain and submerge the garment in the water. Leave it to soak for at least 30 minutes. Every five minutes or so rub the stain with your fingers to loosen the stain. Rinse the clothing afterwards and apply a stain remover (liquid, gel or spray) to the stain. Leave it to sit for 7-10 minutes. Rinse the clothing and see if the stain is still there. If it is repeat the procedures until it’s removed. Do not let the clothing dry because this will set the stain forever.
Now, if the stain is old you have to do the following:
Remove excess ice cream substance with by scraping the stain with a spoon or a dull knife. Rub in some liquid laundry detergent and soak the stain in cold water for 30 minutes. Every 5-6 minutes rub the stain to be sure that the detergent goes deep in the fabric. Next, repeat the mentioned above steps for removing fresh stains.
