Removing Stubborn Chocolate Stains

 If you spill chocolate on your clothing or the carpet, you will instantly feel dreadful. You could rinse the stain and hope it comes out when you wash your clothes while at the same time thinking that the garment is ruined and headed for the trash. Fortunately, there are several tried and true ways of removing stubborn chocolate stains. Before you give up hope and throw your garment to the trash, check out these solutions first.

When your clothing is stained with chocolate, soak it in plain cold water for around thirty minutes. If the stain is still present after you soaked it, try dabbing it with a bit of detergent and allow it to sit for five minutes and then re-soak. Do not rub since this could force the stain deeper to the fabric. In the case of removing stubborn chocolate stains on the carpet or upholstery, wait until it hardens. Scrape off excess chocolate using a dull knife like a butter knife. Then, combine a tablespoon of liquid laundry detergent and two tablespoons lightly warm water. Blot the stain with the mixture using a towel or white washcloth.

In case you have chocolate stains on the walls, wipe them gently with a damp cloth. Pay extra care with newly painted walls since the paint could come off with hard rubbing. If the wall paint is flat, use a magic eraser or a new pencil eraser to get rid of the stain.
