Stain Buster — Ice Cream

icecream

Fabric

Pretreat or soak, using a proprietary stain remover, for at least 30 minutes or several hours for older stains. Wash as usual.

 

Upholstery

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.

 

OR

Mix one tablespoon of washing up liquid with two cups of cool water. Using a clean white cloth, sponge the stain with the detergent solution and blot until the liquid is absorbed. Keep sponging and blotting until the stain disappears. Sponge with cold water and blot dry.

 

Carpet

Mix one tablespoon of washing up liquid with two cups of warm water. Using a clean white cloth, sponge the stain with the detergent solution and blot until the liquid 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 ammonia (warning: never mix bleach and ammonia – the resulting fumes are hazardous) with two cups of warm water. Sponge the stain with the ammonia solution and blot until the liquid is absorbed. Sponge with cold water and blot dry.

 

Chocolate ice cream stains

For chocolate ice cream on carpet or upholstery, you may need to resort to hydrogen peroxide and ammonia. Apply the peroxide and then the ammonia with an eye dropper. Flush with water and blot until the liquid is absorbed.
