Fabric softener can leave your garment smelling fresh and clean, but if used incorrectly or spilled down your shirt it can leave greasy looking stains behind. You’ll want to treat these with the hottest water setting that’s safe for your garment, but the good news is that fabric softener is easy to wash out with a good washing detergent with bleaching agents, like Ariel. If you find these stains keep cropping up after the wash, maybe your fabric softener dispenser is clogged, so you might want to give your washing machine a thorough clean. With a few simple Ariel stain solutions, fabric conditioner stains can be removed in a few easy steps. Ariel has got you covered.
Removing finger paint stains
Get rid of the excess from the garment with a spoon. Rinse the fabric inside out under warm, running water.
Pour Ariel Original Washing Liquid directly onto the stain.
Add correct dose to your washing machine’s dispenser drawer, being careful to use the correct dose of washing detergent.
Load your finger paint stained garments along with other similar garments and wash on your usual cycle, following your garment’s care label.
When the cycle is complete, unload the garments immediately.
If the finger paint stain persists after washing, repeat the previous steps before drying, as drying will set the stain.
