Popsicle stains on a swimsuit


How can you remove a red Popsicle stain out of a swimsuit?


With sweltering heat all over the country right now, it is hard to resist a popsicle! Red stains can be particularly difficult to remove, but I would try the following:

  1. Apply liquid Clorox2® Stain Remover and Color Booster directly to the stain, and rub it in.
  2. Wait 3 – 5 minutes — don’t let it dry on the fabric!
  3. Wash in the hottest water recommended on the care label with detergent + more Clorox2®.

You could also try a Clorox2® pre-soak (if there are two pieces soak them together) using a capful of Clorox2® added to 2 gallons of warm water. Allow the item to soak for 30 minutes, then wash as directed above.
