How to remove chocolate stains from clothes

-Allow melted chocolate to dry and harden.
-Scrape away its remains with a blunt knife.
-Pour hot water through the back side of the cloth to melt it. This will allow it to come off the fabric faster.
-Use a stain remover or detergent (in powder form together with hot water) to retreat stain.
-Wait for at least 10 minutes.
-Gently fold the cloth and rub the fabric together to agitate the soap and stain.
-Wash as usual.
-If the stain persists, you can dub it with dish detergent for 15 minutes and throw it in the washing machine.
-If you have a chocolate catastrophe, soak the cloth in a gallon of whole milk for at least 30 minutes before you throw it in the washing machine.

How to remove chocolate stains from the carpet

-Allow melted chocolate to dry and harden.
-Scrape away its remains with a blunt knife.
-Vacuum the crumbs with a hand vacuum or hose.
-Arrange a layer of paper towels on top of the stain and iron them at the lowest non-steam setting to soften and absorb the stain. Keep the temperature steady so as not to spread the chocolate.
-Repeat with clean paper towels until the chocolate is gone.
-Treat dark spots with a cleaning spray, carpet remover or dish detergent, blot with a clean towel and leave to dry for at least 10 minutes.
-For stubborn stains, use products for tough stains.
