How to Remove a Cake Stain from Clothes.

How to Remove a Cake Stain from Clothes.

 

The majority of a cake stain is oil from the cake and sugar from the frosting. The solids from the cake will easily wipe off. With a butter knife or spoon lightly scrape off any solid cake without imbedding the cake further into the material.  Applying a good oil remover and water will easily release the stain.

 

Dawn Dishwashing Liquid is a great oil remove because it is designed to remove oils from your dishes. I like this because it works well and everyone has some readily available in the kitchen.

 

 

Remember to always evaluated color and material. Test for color bleeding in a hidden area of the garment before proceeding with stain removal. Using a white towel apply a small amount of the solution onto the towel and dab a hidden area of the garment. If color transfers to the towel re-evaluate the use of the product and technique. Rubbing and scrubbing can cause excess color lost.

 

Finish by cleaning the entire item as recommended by the care label.

 

Seek professional help if necessary. If you have a good relationship with your green dry cleaners they will be more than happy to help you with stain removal questions.
