Chocolate stains, as all other stains, are most noticeable on white fabric. To remove a chocolate stain from white fabric, you may have to try more than one cleaning technique but if you are persistent the stain will come out at the end. Here are a few methods involving household products such as ammonia and club soda, that can help you to remove chocolate from white fabric. Keep in mind that the sooner you tackle the chocolate stain the easier it will come out of the fabric.
- Try to remove the chocolate stain with ammonia solution. To make the solution, mix 1 tablespoon of ammonia with 2 cups of water. Pour some of the solution directly onto the chocolate stain, then rinse with cool water and launder the fabric as usual. Do not use the dryer before the stain has been completely removed, as recommended by cleaners East Sheen.
- Use the edge of a spoon to remove hardened chocolate from the fabric. Then, apply a stain remover to the stained area and let it soak in for 5 minutes before running it through your washing machine. Once the garment has been washed, hang it out to air dry.
- Another way to remove chocolate from white fabric is by using club soda. This method is appropriate for fresh chocolate stains. Simply soak the white fabric in club soda for a quarter hour and then wash it as you normally would.
- Combine together equal parts of water and liquid laundry detergents, then soak the fabric in the solution for about 15 minutes and wash it as usual.
If you are worry not to damage the white fabric while using some of the methods, consider calling cleaners East Sheen for some piece of advice.
