How to Remove Food Stains

Removing food stains from whites and bleach-safe fabrics

  1. Presoak
    For large stains, pre-soak the entire item in a solution of ¼ cup Clorox® Disinfecting Bleach with CLOROMAX® per gallon of water. Submerge the garment and soak for 5 minutes.
  2. Wash
    Wash immediately in the hottest water recommended by the care label using detergent and 1/3 cup or max line on HE machine with Clorox® Disinfecting Bleach with CLOROMAX®.
  3. Check
    After the wash, check to make sure the stain is gone. If the stain is still present, repeat the process.

Some experts recommend sprinkling a packet of artificial sweetener to soak up the grease. Just make sure you never run water on the stain.
