Stain removal steps
Remove Excess:Rinse the stain under cold, running water using a high water pressure to help with stain removal.
Pre-treat:Add 1 ounce or 1 ½ tablespoons of Dreft per gallon of warm water to create a soaking solution. You can use a bucket, sink or bowl for this step. Allow clothes to soak for 30 minutes, keeping the items submerged by weighing them down with a white towel.
Dose:Use the correct amount of detergent by following the instructions on the packet and measuring the dose in the cap. If you have a high-efficiency machine, pour it into the detergent dispenser, and if you have a non-HE machine, pour the detergent directly into the drum.
Load:Load the clothes into the washer.
Wash:Follow the instructions on the garment’s care label when selecting the wash cycle.
Unload:If the stain remains, then repeat these steps before drying, as drying will set the stain.
