I have never met someone that doesn’t enjoy chocolate, however, no one likes chocolate stains. Unfortunately, accidents do happen which means that at some point in your life you will stain your favourite white shirt or even worse – your upholstery!
But don’t let that stop you from eating that chocolate cake because I will show you exactly how to remove chocolate stains!
How To Remove Chocolate Stains From Clothes?
Start off with removing as much chocolate as possible by scooping it with a spoon.
Then you need to rinse the stained area with cold water. Don’t use hot water because the heat will set the stain making it so much harder to remove.
Once you do that it’s time to grab your liquid laundry detergent and apply it directly to the affected area. Let it sit for 10 minutes before soaking your clothing item in cold water.
Make sure that you rub the laundry detergent in the stain with your fingers which will remove it.
If case the stain remains after following these steps then you need to grab a stain remover and follow the instructions on the package. You can also use oxygen bleach which works very well.
Now that you successfully got rid of the stain – throw your clothing item in the washing machine and wash as usual.
How To Remove Chocolate Stains From Your Carpet?
If you accidentally dropped chocolate on your carpet – don’t panic!
Start off with scooping up the excess with a spoon but be gentle!
Then mix a tablespoon of liquid soap with 2 cups of water (again, avoid using hot water). Dampen a cloth with the mixture and blot the stained area with it. Do not rub or wipe.
Next, once you are happy with the result, use a dry cloth to remove the soapy water.
How To Remove Chocolate Stains From Your Sofa?
Did you stain your sofa with chocolate? No worries – I will teach you how to get rid of the stain!
Similar to the other surfaces, you need to start off by scooping up the excess chocolate with a spoon. Some people recommend using a vacuum cleaner but I think it will make an even bigger mess.
If you can remove the cushion covers then read the tag and see whether you can wash them in your washing machine. If that is the case, then immediately throw them in the appliance and wash them (but you need to use cold water instead of hot).
If you cannot remove the cushion covers then make a mixture of a tablespoon liquid soap and two cups of water.
Next, grab a toothbrush, dip it in the solution and dab the stained area. Repeat this step until the stain is removed completely.
Then you need to wipe the soapy water by using a paper towel (blot the area).
