Not sure how to get rid of chocolate stains? Here’s a great tip for removing chocolate stains, which I found in my inbox from Martha Stewart this morning.
Her email was quite timely, since just yesterday I pulled the jeans from the dryer, only to discover that my youngest child had hidden some Easter candy in her pocket. Of course, I discovered the contraband too late, and now everything was covered in a dried-on, gooey, chocolate/caramel mess.
Undaunted, I began the task of removing the stains. Here’s what I did:
1. Scraped all the chocolate mess I could from the clothes.
2. Spot-treated the stains with liquid laundry detergent, scrubbing it in with a toothbrush.
3. Let the pre-treated clothes sit overnight.
4. Ran the load this morning, adding a little vinegar and extra detergent in a one-hour soak cycle first.
In less than 24 hours, all the jeans are chocolate free!
