Question

What is the best way to remove marshmallow from clothing?

Answer

S’mores are a summer campfire staple, but they sure can be a sticky mess! Fortunately marshmallows are mostly sugar, water, and gelatin, and dissolve rather easily in water. You can pretreat these stains with a little Clorox 2® For Colors 3-in-1 Liquid prior to machine washing for an extra cleaning boost. Just apply a little Clorox 2® product directly to the stains and gently rub it in. Wait 10 minutes (set a timer to keep track of the time) and then machine wash the item in the hottest water recommended on the care label using detergent and a little more Clorox 2® For Colors 3-in-1 Liquid. Air dry the item and check for success–it’s always a good idea to keep a stained item you are working on out of a hot dryer until you know the stain is all the way out so you can repeat a treatment if necessary to get a stain all the way out.
