Stain Buster — Butter

butter

Fabric

Scrape off excess butter. Pretreat with a prewash stain remover and wash on the hottest possible setting for that fabric.

 

Upholstery

Scrape off excess butter. Sprinkle bicarbonate of soda or cornflour onto the stain. Leave for 10 to 15 minutes, and then vacuum. Using a clean white cloth, sponge the stain with a proprietary dry-cleaning solvent. Blot until the solvent is absorbed. Keep sponging and blotting until the stain disappears.

 

Carpet

Scrape off excess butter. Sprinkle bicarbonate of soda or cornflour onto the stain. Leave for 10 to 15 minutes, and then vacuum. Using a clean white cloth, sponge the stain with a proprietary dry-cleaning solvent and blot until the solvent is absorbed. Keep sponging and blotting until the stain disappears or is no longer absorbed into the cloth.

If the stain remains, mix one tablespoon of washing up liquid and one tablespoon of white vinegar with two cups of warm water. Sponge the stain with the detergent/vinegar solution and blot until the liquid is absorbed. Sponge with cold water and blot dry.

 

Worth a try

If you spill butter or oil on your clothes while dining out, use granulated artificial sweetener as an emergency absorbent. Pat it into the grease spot,  leave it for a few minutes, and then brush it off. When you get home, treat the stain as soon as possible.
