I somehow managed to get chocolate ice cream all down the front of a light-colored cotton t-shirt Saturday night. I haven't washed it yet. Anybody know how I can get rid of this stain? TIA!

I have had some luck with dish soap and cool water, but I am not sure if it will work after it has set for awhile. I usually try to wash as soon as possible.

My dd got chocolate on a white dress. I washed in cold water and regular laundry soap, it came right out.

fels naphta soap or ecover stain remover. both get chocolate out super easy.

The truest answer to violence is love. The truest answer to death is life. The only prevention for violence is for the heart to have no violence within it.  We cannot prevent evil through any system devised by mankind. But we can grapple with evil and defeat it, but only with love—real love.

I don't even know how it got on there in the first place! I was eating ice cream out of a CUP! I usually bring the cup close to my mouth when I spoon up some and I normally would've noticed if I spilled. I just happened to glance down and saw a huge brown streak. I was on my way into a movie and ended up having to take my shirt off and wear my camisole around.

oxi-clean
I usually try just washing it with the regular laundry, if I remember I do try to rub some detergent on it, but if that doesn't get the stain out try a soak in oxi-clean for 24-48hrs. be sure not to put it in the dryer until the stain is gone.
