Clothes Call: Here Comes the Stain Again
Put the article of clothing into the freezer so that the chocolate hardens. Use a spoon to lift the chocolate. Then apply a dry cleaning solvent to the area. Blot the stain with your finger and then rinse with warm water. Seeing green? For hard-to-treat grass stains, use a stain stick on the area. Rub the stick on the grass stain. Let it sit. Then wash. For a bloody mess, you'll want to treat the clothing as soon as possible. Rinse the clothing in cold water, and rub the area with your finger. Soak the article in ammonia and water for about 20 minutes-- and then wash. Ink is another tough one stain to fight. Spray the sink stain with hairspray until the area is soaked. Let it soak in and then wipe with a clean rag. Do this until the stain dissipates. Then wash as usual.
