Denim jeans are comfortable, rugged and a must-have in your wardrobe. And because they are so comfortable, you end up wearing them often. If you are at a restaurant and accidentally spill a bit of soy sauce or curry on your light blue jeans, there is no need to spoil your evening thinking about how to remove the stain. These mishaps are bound to happen and the good news is, these stains are easy to clean.
Try these tips to get rid of soy sauce stains from your denim.
1) Use Dishwashing Liquid and Glycerine
Try this if the soy sauce spill on your light blue denim jeans is still damp. Mix 1 tbsp. each of glycerin and dishwashing liquid with 1 tsp. of water in a bowl. Lay your jeans on a flat platform and pour this solution on the stained area and gently rub with your fingers. Then rinse under cold running water and wash as usual.
2) Use Coconut Oil and Liquid Detergent
If the soy sauce has dried up, make a cleaning solution by mixing 3 tsp. liquid detergent and 1 tsp. coconut oil in a bowl. Pour this solution on the stained part to cover it evenly. Gently rub with your fingers in a circular motion to let the solution sink into the fabric. Wait 1 hour and then wash as you normally would.
3) Use Baking Soda and Salt
A combination of baking soda and salt is a great alternative to clean stubborn soy sauce stains from your light blue denim jeans. Combine 1 cup of baking soda and 1 tbsp. of salt in a bowl and mix well. Dip a clean sponge in this paste and apply it on the stain, and rub gently. Wait 30 minutes and wash as you normally would.
There you go, these cleaning tips will help you rid your light blue denim jeans of soy sauce stains.
