How to Remove Ice Cream Stains from Clothes

Ice creams and summer are synonymous, and it does not need to be an adage. With the rising temperatures, ice cream acts as a delightful spoon of goodness on a scorching sunny day. But what’s not delightful is when the ice cream melts and spills on your clothes. Ice cream stains can very often be too stubborn to get rid of.

If proper care is employed promptly, eliminating them is comparatively easier than just washing them and throwing them off in a corner. Just don’t get carried away in the thought that you will treat the stains in the future. The longer the proteins exhibiting the ice cream sits, the longer the effort is to get it removed.

Eradicating the Stains!

Act Prudently
One of the most crucial aspects of stain removal is the time factor that you need to keep in mind. As soon as you spill the ice cream on your clothes, try to refrain the ice cream from spreading, and if you have a tissue, dab on it to be able to remove the excess. Don’t let the strain dry out, or it will be a much more challenging task to be able to remove it.

Drench it Out
Try soaking the tinted clothes in soap water as soon as possible if you do not want the protein to dry out and dig deeper into your fabric to make matters worse. At times it’s even possible to remove the stains if you blot the blemished region of the cloth by wetting it. Clothes are porous, so you can get the ice cream passed through the stained region.

Pretreat it
If you have a good laundry detergent, then use it to pretreat the stain, or you can even use a few drops of dishwashing liquid diluted with a few drops of water to apply on the stain and let it sit for around half an hour. After which, you can rinse the clothes in cold water subsequently. Avoid using hot water due to obvious reasons of having a risk of getting the stain more adamant on the fabric.
