RealSimple: Our Best Holiday Stain Removal Tips and Techniques

9 of 11

How to Remove Milk, Frosting, or Ice Cream

On table linens: Using an enzyme detergent, like Arm and Hammer Plus OxiClean, and the warmest water safe for the fabric, soak for 30 minutes. Wash in warm water, using bleach if the fabric allows.

On the rug: For wool, soak up liquids with paper towels and use a cloth to dab the spot with cold water. Then blot with WoolClean Dry Spot Remover No. 2. For a synthetic rug, apply diluted dish soap with a damp cloth; rinse with a clean section of the cloth. Dry with paper towels. If the stain remains, fill a spray bottle with ½ cup hydrogen peroxide and 1 teaspoon ammonia. Lightly spritz the solution onto the spot—the stain should disappear in about eight hours.
