Easy Way to Remove Pink Stains from Your White Clothes

Did you mix your coloured clothes and whites in the washer and end up with pink stains on your white clothes? Or, did you accidentally drop makeup on your clothes that has left a pinkish stain. Don’t worry, just follow this step-by-step method to remove those pesky pink stains from your white clothes.

Let’s get started on removing colour from white clothes.

We suggest you run separate loads for your coloured and white clothes to avoid colour run stains. Also, the problem of colour run mostly occurs when you use warm or hot water when washing coloured clothes. We suggest you use cold to lukewarm water instead.

Step 1: Spot-Treat the Garment

In a bowl, mix 3 tsp. of white vinegar and 2 tsp. of dishwashing liquid. Add 2 tsp. of water and mix well. Use a sponge to apply this solution on the stains. Gently rub it in with the sponge, and wait for 30 minutes.

Step 2: Soak the Garment

After pre-treating the stain, soak it to loosen the remaining stain deposits. Fill ½ a bucket with warm water and add 1 cup of baking soda to it. Swirl it to ensure it mixes well. Drop your garment in the bucket and wait for an hour.

Step 3: Wash the Garment

After soaking, wash your white garment. If you’re machine-washing it, add 1 cup of vinegar along with a mild detergent and run your normal cycle. If you’re hand-washing it, fill ½ a bucket with warm water, then add ½ a cup of mild detergent. Rinse and wash thoroughly. Remember not to use too much detergent as it could leave a residue.

Step 4: Dry the Garment

After washing, dry your white clothes in sunlight. Never underestimate the power of sunlight when it comes to brightening your whites. Sun acts as a natural bleaching agent and brightens your white clothes.

By now, the stains should have disappeared. The next time you find pink stains on your white clothes, don’t despair. Try this stain-cleaning method and restore the charm of your whites.
