How to remove candy stains

Whether it’s you or your kid munching through those candies, when they drop onto your clothes and leave a candy stain, it’s not a great look. Candy stains are tough stains to remove, so they need to be pre-treated. Ariel Liquid is the most effective solution. Just read the instructions below for candy stain removal in the first wash.

You may have heard that white vinegar is the best way to remove candy stains, but there is another way that doesn’t involve experimenting. Just follow the steps below and remove candy stains in the first wash with Ariel.

Candy Stain On Cloth

Removing candy stains

  • 1

    Remove excess

    Scrape off any excess from the garment before rinsing under running water. The higher the water pressure, the easier it will be to remove.

  • 2


    Pour Ariel Regular Liquid Laundry Detergent directly onto the marker stain, enough to completely cover it. Pour from either the bottle or the cap.

  • 3


    Spread the detergent over the stain with the pre-treat cap. The cap’s flexible fins can help spread the detergent deep into the garment’s fibres as well as over the surface of the stain.

  • 4


    Without rinsing off the detergent, place the garment into the wash with similar items. Leaving the detergent on the stain will give your wash that extra boost of cleaning power.

  • 5


    You can also use the pre-treat cap to ensure you use the right amount of detergent. Just fill it with the correct dose of detergent and place it directly into your washing machine’s drum, on top of your dirty laundry.

  • 6


    Wash on the usual cycle, on the hottest wash temperature indicated. Always check the instructions on the garment’s care label.

  • 7


    When the cycle is complete, unload the garments immediately.

Candy stains may be tough to remove, but other desserts are just as likely to find themselves onto your favourites. Whether it’s chocolate stains on your top or the healthier option – for you, not your clothes – of fruit stains, Ariel can remove them in the first wash.
