Expert Tips

If you don't have a Vanish stain removal product to hand then don't worry. We're still able to provide some handy hints on removing stains. Vanish will help you remove the stains even once they have dried-in.

Often a chocolate stain may leave a faint oily mark if removed without a detergent product; make sure to check for this before drying the stained item otherwise this mark will become very difficult to remove.

Remove as much chocolate as possible with a knife or spoon, being careful not to spread it further.
Gently rub in some soap to the damp chocolate stained area and dab with a damp cloth to break up the stain.
Use clean water to rinse and then blot as much fluid out of the stained area as possible with a clean cloth or napkin.

Trivia

Chocolate causes stains so frequently because of its low melting temperature, and the fact that it contains cocoa butter and milk solids; two staining agents.
