Chocolate Stain Removal
Chocolate stains... is there a single person in Australia who's not had to battle them at some point? Chocolate stains are one of the most common when it comes to things that stain people's clothes. Vanish know that whilst we all love chocolate; we hate the stains it can cause! Don't panic though, if you have Vanish Napisan Oxi Action in your household, getting chocolate stains out of clothing shouldn't be a problem. Simply follow our instructions below for great results.
HOW TO REMOVE CHOCOLATE STAINS
To help get rid of chocolate stains, we recommend using Vanish Napisan Oxi Action Powder:
Remove as much chocolate as possible from the area affected by the chocolate stain. Rinse with cold water from behind the stain so the stain doesn't have to travel through the fabric to be washed out.
Soaking is recommended for tough stains: Dissolve 1/2 a scoop of Vanish Napisan Oxi Action Powder in 7L of warm water (max 40°) and soak the stained item. For both coloured fabrics and whites soak for a minimum of 2 hours. Then rinse thoroughly or wash as usual with your detergent.
Important: Always follow the usage instructions on the Vanish packaging. Do not use on wool, silk or leather. Do not soak metal buttons or zippers.
