Ice cream on a hot summer day (or let's be honest, any day of the year) is a favorite American pastime. However, more often than not, your favorite ice cream flavor has a way of finding it's way onto your Sunday best. But don't worry, we have you covered with this easy guide to ice cream stain removal.

How to Tackle an Ice Cream Stain

  1. Treat the spill - The sooner you treat the ice cream stain, the better. Soak the stained fabric in cold water (not hot water) for 10+ minutes.
  2. Rub laundry detergent into the stain - Pour laundry detergent onto the stained area, rub the laundry detergent into the stain (pro tip: use a toothbrush), and soak your clothing in room temperature water for 30 minutes. Check in after 15 minutes and give the treated stained area another gentle rub.
  3. Rinse clothing - Rinse the clothing with cold water to see if the stain is gone. If stain still remains, repeat the process.
  4. Launder the clothing as usual - wash your clothing with your favorite laundry detergent. Make sure the stain is completely gone before you toss it into the dryer.
