My dd has had a bit of a thing for chocolate mini milks recently and as a result several of her tops/dresses have got lovely brown stains all down them. I washed them all just recently, treating with a stain remover spray, but it made no difference... can anyone recommend any other product that might actually work?
chickenmama I hate to tell you this, and I really hope these tips work. BUT chocolate mini milk is about the only stain that I have never been able to get out of clothing. (and I am quite good at getting stains out)
Please post again with the solution if any of the tips work for you.
i use cold water for tea n stuff like that, never tried with ice cream or anything like that though so will try it out next time lo spills (which will probably be 7am tomorrow )
chicken, its usually right on a top shelf out of the way next to vanish and stuff like that in a red packet if i recall correctly. i live just over road from co-op too, spend my life in there just for something to do with lo as she loves the loo roll aisle (andrex puppies!)
Barring that I now use washing up liquid. Have chucked all other stain removers out as they are no better and cost a fortune. If plain white clothes then soak in milton just rinse them well or you will bleach the rest of the wash (as DH recently found out).
I even got old fat stains out of a lot of tops of mine with some fairy the other week. I used to have a collection of tops with grease marks from doing sunday roasts etc, just sitting in the wardrobe, I did not have the heart to throw them. Fairy all the way! (other washing up liquids are available )
