Chocolate Stains on Clothing

I spilled the kind of chocolate that hardens onto my favorite pants. The chocolate came out but some kind of oily(?) residue has remained. They are 100% cotton.

Thanks for the help,
Barbara

There is a color-safe bleach called VIVID that comes in a liquid or a powder. It gets out lots of stains that others can't touch. And if your daughter truly gets chocolate stains on all her clothes, you might want to start dressing her all in brown!!! (07/14/2004)

Rub some DAWN dishwashing liquid in the stain. Let set for a few minutes and then wash. Works every time here. (07/15/2004)

I agree with the Dawn dishwashing liquid. This usually works well for me, especially with those oily spots on dark colored clothes. (08/23/2005)

I use Dawn on the stain and let it soak for a short time. In the meantime I heat a medium saucepan full of water on the stove or heat a large measuring bowl full of water in the microwave. I then place a medium sized empty bowl inside the garment with the stained part of the garment in the middle of the bowl. Place this in the sink and then pour the hot water over the stain. This has even worked on stains that have gone through the dryer. (10/02/2005)

Fels-Naptha soap! Just wet the material, rub in some fels naptha and wash as usual. It can be found in MOST laundry sections of wal-mart, or other stores..it is an "old" bar soap but, old isn't always bad! (10/02/2005)

I used this method to clean chocolate off a denim fabric couch: Scrape off excess dried chocolate with a spoon. Sponge stain with cold water. Mix 2 tablespoons of borax ("Boraxo Laundry Booster," or "20 Mule Team Laundry Booster") and 2 cups of warm water. Sponge stain with this mixture. Rinse well and wash as usual.

THANK YOU! My 2 year old daughter had gotten chocolate stains from M&Ms on a dress I had recently bought her & the stain had set in so I tried the Dawn dishsoap trick, the stain is gone! I will pass this tip onto everyone I know! (01/30/2006)

I've tried the Clorox Pen, and it doesn't work on anything it's supposed to, so far. So, now I'm trying the Fels-Naptha soap and Dawn soap to remove the chocolate stain which has "set" for 9 hours. I also tried Tryzyme from Amway, but this is a stubborn stain! This white blouse has not been in the dryer. (03/15/2006)

I used Dawn's foam detergent - It worked a miracle on the entire load - I had a brand new pair of Ping golf shorts of my husband's and 4 very good golf shirts plus everything else that went through the original load. The chocolate all came out. I was thrilled and recommend it to anyone with the same problem that I had! (04/30/2006)

My fiance spilled chocolate sauce all over a very expensive new Kenneth Cole dress shirt (100% cotton- made in Indonesia) while at a trade conference for his job. i've tried the conventional stain removal methods on chocolate stains in the past but nothing works better than HEAVEY CREAM. Believe it or not, something in milk dissolves every trace of chocolate from clothes, you can even use icky bad stinky milk, as long as the milk used is real cow milk and has a high fat content. Heavy cream works best (skim won't work), just use a toothbrush and lightly scrub the stain with cream, let stand for a few minutes, scrub lightly again, and throw into the wasH with warm/hot water and regular detergent.

Goof Off The Ulimate Remover! Lightly cover stain wait a minutes or two and then wash in hot water and laundry soap. This removes oil like you would not believe. I have 3 sons; it has said a lot of clothes. Actually, my youngest son just start working at a cafeteria. He had oil all over two pairs of his jeans. Just two days ago I said what is up with the oil. He said he stir fries. Thank God for Goof Off. Jeans are clean. (05/26/2006)

The oily stuff left can be removed by putting a bit of dawn dish soap directly on the greasy spots. Let it soak in and wash in the washing machine with normal detergent as usual. Dawn has great grease fighiting power on dishes and clothes. (07/30/2006)

I have done this before and it worked for me. On clothing, even after it has been washed and in the dryer, if the chocolate stain remains, put some kitchen roll or similar under the stain, and iron on the reverse side. It melts the chocolate back through and into the paper. (11/06/2006)
