- Remove excess chocolate.
Use a dull knife or a spoon to remove any excess bits of chocolate from the fabric. Work carefully to make sure you don't spread the chocolate to clean parts of the clothing.
- Rinse with cold water.
Using cold water, rinse the back of the stained area. This allows the stain to travel back through the least amount of fabric possible.
- Rub in some liquid laundry detergent.
Gently rub liquid detergent into the chocolate stain. Allow the clothing to sit for 5 minutes. Next, soak the clothing for 15 minutes in cold water, Every 3-5 minutes, rub the stained area between your fingers and thumb to loosen the stain. Rinse thoroughly. Continue until no more stain can be removed.
- Try a stain remover.
If an oily stain remains, add a stain remover stick, gel, or spray. Wash normally.
- Before drying make sure that the stain has been fully removed. Sometimes a faint oil stain may be left over. Try rubbing liquid dish soap into the stain and washing in the hottest water safe for your garment.
