Getting a chocolate stain out of a white t-shirt.

(6 Posts)

Any suggestions? I have a new white t-shirt, worn only once, and I managed to drop dark chocolate on it, and not notice until it had melted in. I washed it the next day, with stain removal liquid (DrBeekmans) on it, and Tesco in-wash stain remover for whites, but there is still a stain there.

I've tried spraying on a bit of bleach, but that hasn't got rid of it - so does anyone have a magic solution, or am I going to have to dye this t-shirt and buy a new white one?

Vanish soap bar & cold water pre-washing usually works, but you could still try this prior to washing again.

Good luck!

Then hang out on the line in the sunshine afterwards to bleach out any residual stain.

I was gobsmacked when an unknown stain came out of ds white t shirt just from that. until then I'd tried everything

T shirt needs to wet though and to dry outside

Thank you - I will get a vanish bar and start praying for sunshine. I do live in Scotland, though .... grin
