Mustard – one of my favourite condiments! But it’s also one of my least favourite stains to deal with. Unfortunately, I have spilt mustard on my clothes and my couch in the past.
Because of the yellow dye of the turmeric which is used in mustard, it can be a little tricky to remove especially when you drop some on your upholstery or your carpet.
How To Remove Mustard Stains From Clothes?
Now, if the stain is fresh you need to immediately remove the excess with a spoon. Then go to your sink and rinse the affected area with cold water.
Then it’s time to grab your laundry detergent and start treating the stain with it. You can use a soft brush and gently work the detergent into the affected area.
Then you can wash the clothing item as usual. Once you take it out of the washing machine make sure you inspect whether the stain is removed or not.
If the mustard stain remains then you need to soak the affected area in an oxygen-based bleach (dilute it in cold water first) overnight! Then remove the clothing piece and wash it as usual in the washing machine.
The mustard stain should be completely gone by now!
