How to Remove Ravioli Sauce Stains from a Wedding Gown.

Ravioli’s date back to the 14th Century in letters written by some guy named Francesco di Marco, however if a ravioli stain is that old my best educated guess would be it’s permanent. So don’t even try to remove the stain because you will damage the material in the process. Instead call the local museum to tell them you have an historical artifact.


Test the color of the garment in a hidden area with the spotting solution of choice to see if it is colorfast before apply to garment.

Create a ravioli stain spotting solution with 1 part Dawn Dishwashing Liquid, 3 parts Heinz Distilled White Vinegar, and 3 parts Water.

1.      For a small ravioli stained area apply the solution directly to the ravioli stain.

2.      Tamp the ravioli stain with a brush.

3.      Let the ravioli stain solution penetrate stain for 15-20 minutes.

4.      Launder as normal.


If we are not achieving the results desired, then use a stronger product. Enzyme stain removers such as BioKleen’s Bac-Out can be found in the laundry department of most grocery stores such as Whole Foods.

1.      Apply the enzyme stain remover directly to the ravioli stain.

2.      Let it penetrate the ravioli stain for 1-2 hours, re apply if it starts to dry out.

3.      Launder as normal.

Soaking the entire garment in the enzyme is a good idea for large stains or to prevent color loss from a specific area. Soak for several hours or overnight.
