How to Remove Mustard Stains

How to Remove Mustard Stains

Summer festivities are some of the best of the year. We’ve got BBQs, picnics, and pool parties galore. Are you ready for some of summer’s most common stains? It’s likely that at least one hot dog will be consumed during these warmer months, and in the event that a bit of mustard makes its way onto your clothing, we want you to be able to treat it without stress!

Step 1

Remove excess

Use a dull knife to gently scrape off any excess mustard lingering on your item.

Step 2

Flush out stain

Place the affected area (wrong side up) under your faucet and flush it out with cold water. This will get out as much of the stain as possible before moving on to treat it.

Step 3

Fill sink

After flushing with water, fill the sink with warm water and drop in one Oxi Boost pod. Wait for it to dissolve fully.

Soak in Oxi Boost

Completely submerge the entire garment and allow it to soak for 1-3 hours. Rinse when done.

Dry in the sun

Leave your garment out to dry, preferably in the sunshine for extra bleaching power.

Extra Tip:

If the mustard stain is already dried and hardened by the time you get to it, rub glycerin into the stain and let it stand until it loosens, up to 1 hour. Then follow the rest of the steps!
