How to remove toothpaste stains

You’re getting ready in the morning and you get toothpaste all down your top. Toothpaste stains sometimes contain dyes, which can affect the fabric, and also titanium dioxide powder, which makes the toothpaste white and can also make it difficult when it comes to removing toothpaste stains. You’ll want to act fast and remove toothpaste stains as soon as possible, and use a washing detergent, like Ariel, with bleaching agents and enzymes. Follow our Ariel stain solutions and tips for toothpaste stain removal.
