Easy Steps to Remove Ice Cream Stains

Treat ice cream stains as soon as possible for the best results. Put the stained fabric into cold water for 5 to 10 minutes or longer if the stain is dried; avoid hot water which will set a protein stain.

If you can still see any remains of the stain, rub liquid laundry detergent into the stained area and soak in room temperature water for 30 minutes. Rub the stain gently every few minutes. If you don’t have liquid laundry detergent, try dish soap.

After rinsing the clothing, add a stain remover to the stained area. Allow it to sit for 7 to 10 minutes before rinsing completely.
Repeat the soaking and stain remover steps until no ice cream is left in the clothing. Be sure you don’t see any remaining stain because once the fabric is dried, it will be nearly impossible to remove it. Wash the clothing according to the fabric directions.
