Forgive this pun, but it’s no picnic to remove a mustard stain from clothing. However, mustard stain removal is not that hard if you know what you’re doing. While there is not a magic mustard stain remover, you can use a few handy supplies for mustard stain removal. Read on how to get a mustard stain out of clothes, or even how to get a mustard stain out of carpet.
How To Get A Mustard Stain Out Of Fabric
To remove a mustard stain from clothing, start by scraping as much of the stain as possible off the fabric with a spoon. Then spray the stain with a little alcohol. Use a soft brush to scrub the alcohol into the fabric then rinse well. If this doesn’t get the stain out, drop a few drop of peroxide and a few drops of ammonia on the stain. Let this soak in, then rinse the stain well and apply a little vinegar. This should get out the rest of the stain. Then wash as usual.
How To Get Mustard Stains Out Of Carpet
Mustard stain removal from carpet is similar to that from fabric. Begin by scraping the mustard from the carpet with the side of a spoon. Then wipe the stain with a cloth or sponge soaked in alcohol. Rinse well and see if the stain is gone. If not, add a few drops of peroxide and a few drops of ammonia to the stain area. Wait a few minutes and rinse well. Follow up with a little vinegar before rinsing one last time. Then blot as much of the rinse water from the carpet as possible. If you have one, turn a fan on the affected area to complete the drying process more quickly. If the spot still remains after all this effort, it may be time to think about moving a chair or ottoman over the affected area.Print This Article
