Laundry Detergent Stains

I pretreated a pair of new white khaki pants with ERA (liquid) laundry detergent and was preparing to wash them right away but my sister-in-law went in to labor and I forgot all about them.

Needless to say they sat for 2 days and after attempting to wash them the detergent left light marks all over them. Will repeated washes help? I washed with cold water per the label, but will warm water dissolve all the detergent? Any recommendations are appreciated.

You say they are "white khaki". If they are white, try a product called "Iron out" located on your store's cleaning aisle. Good luck! bbb

I have had the same problem with All Free & Clear, but I didn't even leave them set in the detergent, just poured it on as the wash started. If you get an answer on this one, let me know! crochet4christ AT ymail.com

I had the same problem with laundry detergent stains on my khaki pants. How do you get out the spots? I can't return the pants.

Soak the item in White Vinegar for 15 to 20 minutes then wash as usual. Hope this helps!
