How to get yellow mustard stains out of light blue jeans?

by Mel

Hello! I have regular mustard on a brand new pair of bleached blue jeans. I washed it once with laundry stain cleaner and it didn’t come out. Any ideas, now that it’s set it( only washed them in cold water ) thanks!!

    Could you try oxyclean? Or maybe some DIY essential oil recipes

      Will buy oxi clean. Never used it, sounds good to have on hand! Thanks Lisa!

    you could try a little dab of Dawn dish detergent. wet it and a dab on a clean cloth and rub in circular motion until it is gone, rinse cold water.

    Mix Oxi-Clean powder (about 2 tbsp) with warm warm. Mix up well, pour on stain and use a nail brush and scrub hard. Rinse with warm water, if stain not gone repeat repeat rinse and let dry. Would love to hear how stain removal went. Good luck.

    Liquid detergent and a small scrub brush should remove it. Scrub the spot well using both and then launder the jeans as usual. If stain is not gone after washing, do NOT dry in the dryer before trying to remove again as the dryer will "set" the stain.

    There is a product called Espro Sports Cleaner at Walmart. It is the best I have ever seen. My grandson left a dark blue crayon in his clothes. An entire load of baby clothes got washed in hot water and dried. I used this spray and a toothbrush to work it in. It got all of it out. It has also gotten out red clay that has been washed and dried. If anything will work, this will. Here's the link.
