Removing butter stains from whites

On the go

Scrape off excess butter with a dull knife or spoon. If possible, pretreat stain with liquid dish soap. Don’t rinse stain with water until you’re ready to wash.

At home

Pretreat with liquid laundry detergent, then wash as usual on the hottest recommended water setting. High dryer heat can cause oil to melt and sink deeper into the garment’s fibers, so check for success before machine drying. Don’t forget to use ½ cup Clorox® Regular-Bleach for white loads.
