Chocolate Is Always The Answer

I know I've mentioned that I'm a big foodie; I love to cook. But my real passion is baking, especially anything chocolate. My son has that same passion - well not so much the baking part but the eating part. With Valentine's Day next week, we decided that instead of giving his classmates and his teacher cards, we would make chocolate heart shaped suckers for everyone. Everything with a 4 year old is messy. Imagine my kitchen and our clothes after working with melted chocolate.

Before we moved to Tennessee, I took all of our dress clothes plus anything with stains to A Cleaner World. Since I no longer have that option, I'm learning the art of stain removal. I need to provide a disclaimer - I am no professional. I am merely a mom with a messy little boy. If it says dry clean only, don't risk it. Just take it to A Cleaner World, and let a professional handle it. If it is washable then hopefully this will help:

  • Let the chocolate dry
  • Once dry, use something with a blunt edge to gently scrape away the excess
  • Turn the garment inside out and place under running water to help remove additional particles
  • Apply a stain remover or some liquid detergent to the area, rub gently, then let soak in
  • Wash the garment according to the label's directions


  1. You're welcome. Now you don't have to worry when you eat chocolate. All the reason to eat even more!
