How To Remove Mustard Stains From Clothes

You must try these methods for treating mustard stains the all natural way. This technique even works on old and stubborn stains. So remove those mustard stains from clothes with ease with VideoJug's helpful advice.

Step 1: Scrape Away

Just as with ketchup stains, you'll want to scrape away any excess off the fabric. Use a dull knife or spoon and work from the outside inward to avoid spreading the spill.

Step 2: Inside Out

When possible, work from the inside out. This helps the stain to lift off of the fabric instead of through the fabric. Fold a light-colored cloth and place it underneath the stain to prevent the stain from spreading to the other side of the shirt.

Step 3: Pre-Treat

Before throwing it in the laundry, pre-treat the stain with a solution made of clear or white dishwashing liquid and lukewarm water (as opposed to cold water with ketchup). Then wash the shirt in the hottest water recommended by the care label. Just don't dry or iron the item until the stain is completely gone.

Step 4: Stubborn Stains

If the stain still hasn't lifted, try treating it with a mixture of warm water and white vinegar, then washing it again. You can also bleach the stain with hydrogen peroxide as long as the fabric is colorfast. It' a good idea to test it on a hidden area before going for the stain.

Step 5: Old Stains

If the stain is old or dried, treat the stain with glycerin and let sit for 30 minutes before trying the other treatments. Glycerin is a vegetable oil by-product of soap making and is good at loosening the stain and re-hydrating it making it easier to lift.

One or a combination of these methods should have worked for you. Don't give up if the stain doesn't disappear right away. Some stains take persistence so hang in there.
