Leaking butter on your clothes doesn’t seem like a disaster, and it’s true, but butter is still a stain of grease, and for this reason, everything becomes less superfluous.
Don’t worry; there are some tips for removing those stubborn stains. We offer you some tips and tricks to remove a butter stain.
1. Use dish soap
Apply a little dish soap directly to the butter stain. Then put your garment in the washing machine. Take care, however, not to put too much dish soap because once in the machine, a lot of foam could come out.
2. Use toothpaste
If you get a little butter on your clothing, put a little toothpaste on the stain in question and rub with a bit of water to create a lather. Your stain will disappear.
3. Use powder
The first thing to do is put talcum powder over the entire stained surface. Leave on for 30 minutes, so the powder absorbs all the fat from the butter. Once the half-hour has passed, remove the talc with a brush, brushing the entire affected area. The grease will go along with the talc. To finish, wash the garment commonly, depending on the type of fabric of the garment.
We must tell you that this trick works as long as the butter stain is recent since it must be fresh for the talc to absorb it.
4. Use Marseille soap
Rub the butter stain with a little Marseille soap, wait a few minutes and wash regularly. As easy as that. If you don’t have Marseille soap, you can also use black soap.
5. Run the garment in cold water
They say that if butter stains a garment, it is enough to run it in cold water for it to disappear. Be careful not to use hot water. This could make the butter stick rather than jam it.
6. Use a paper towel
Put a little paper towel on your butter stain and then iron your garment at low temperature.
7. Use small refreshing towels
Do you know the little wet towels that are distributed in restaurants to wash your hands? Well, it seems that they are effective against butter stains. Gently rub one of these towels over your stain and let it air dry.
8. Use benzine or ammonia
Put a little benzine or ammonia on a cloth and rub the stain with it. Then sprinkle with talcum powder or Sommières earth.
9. Absorb the butter stain with a hot iron
Put the absorbent paper on your butter stain and run over a very hot iron. The paper will absorb the butterfat.
10. Vegetable glycerin
Flood the stain with undiluted vegetable glycerin. Leave on for 15 minutes. After absorption, remove the glycerin by gently scraping with a spoon, gently rub the fabric with wet Marseille soap, then machine the garment.
11. Lemon juice
Squeeze three lemons to obtain approximately 100 ml of juice. Mix the juice with 400 ml of water. Soak the fabric in this mixture and let it soak for a few hours before washing it in the washing machine.
12. Use OxyClean
Oxyclean is a stain cleaner that often works wonders on clothes. It is sold in most stores.
