Removing toothpaste stains from whites and colors

One
Scrape
Gently scrape away any excess toothpaste and then rinse with cool water.

Two
Pre-Treat
For white, bleachable items without spandex, pre-treat the stain with Clorox® Bleach Pen Gel. Or pre-treat with Clorox® UltimateCare® Bleach.

Three
Wash
Use the warmest setting recommended with regular detergent. For white, bleachable items without spandex, add ½ cup Clorox® Regular-Bleach2 or a capful of Clorox® UltimateCare® Bleach. For other items, wait five minutes after pre-treating and use regular detergent and Clorox 2® Stain Remover & Color Booster.

Four
Dry
Air-dry and then check for success.

Five
Repeat
Stains that have sat for days before washing may need a second treatment for complete removal.


Tip
Start by checking care labels. Avoid bleaching wool, silk, mohair, leather and any item containing spandex.
