Custard Stain On Clothes

Removing pudding stains

  • 1

    Remove excess

    Scrape off any excess custard stains and use a paper towel to remove any leftover residue.

  • 2


    Pour Ariel Original Washing Liquid from either the bottle or the cap directly onto the custard stain, enough to completely cover it.

  • 3


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

  • 4


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

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

  • 6


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

  • 7


    When the cycle is complete, unload the garments immediately. Make sure the stain is gone after washing before you place the garment in the dryer, as this may set the stain.

Effective stain removal on a variety of stains

Custard stains sometimes come with other stains, too, like chocolate stains or berry stains, or even come with gravy stains from earlier courses in the meal, which can also leave stains behind on your clothes. But with Ariel, you can see outstanding stain removal results from the 1st wash.
