How to remove mayonnaise stains

Everyone loves the creamy texture you get from the mix of egg and oil in mayonnaise, but it’s also why mayonnaise stains are really hard to remove. Thanks to its ingredients, a mayo stain is actually a combination stain that’s made up of protein, enzymatic and greasy stains. While your first impulse is to run your garment under warm or hot water – don’t! The heat can cause the proteins in the stains to cook and sets them into the fabric. You can remove these stains with enzymes, found in high-quality detergents such as Ariel. Ariel All-in-1 PODS comes with innovative laundry technology that’s ideal for removing mayonnaise stains. Follow our simple tips for outstanding mayonnaise stain removal in the 1st wash.

    Put the POD in the drum

    Getting rid of mayonnaise stains from your clothes has never been easier. All you need to do is simply place one Ariel All-in-1 POD at the bottom of the drum before adding your clothes to the washing machine. Use one POD for medium soiled clothes or loads of 4-5 Kg, and two PODS for heavily soiled clothes, loads over 5KG, or hard water areas. Always make sure to check dosage instructions on your pack.

    Don’t overload your washing machine

    Place the clothes in the washing machine and on top of the washing capsule. In case your clothes are heavily soiled, make sure you don’t overload your machine by leaving at least two palms-worth of space.

    Select the appropriate wash cycle, based on the garments’ fabric care labels. Ariel PODS have been designed to deliver an outstanding clean, even on cold and quick cycles. However, if your clothes are heavily stained, a higher temperature and a longer cycle can also help.

    Take the clean clothes out of the drum immediately after the wash has finished for the best results.

If the stain persists after washing, repeat the previous steps before drying, as if the stain is not completely removed drying will set the stain.
