How to Remove Mayonnaise Stains

Mayonnaise stains are no fun, and they leave a sticky residue all over your clothes that seem like a Mission Impossible to remove.

Fortunately, just a capful of Tide and these easy tips will help the mayo stain go bye-bye.

Step 1


Using a bucket, a sink or a bowl, create a soaking solution by adding 28 grams or 1 ½ tablespoons of Tide Ultra OXI High Efficiency Liquid per 4 litres of warm water. Allow the garment to soak for up to 5 minutes, weighting the item with a white towel to keep it totally submerged.

Step 2


You can also use the Zap! Cap to ensure you use the right amount of laundry detergent. Just fill it with the correct dose of Tide laundry detergent, and pour it into the laundry detergent dispenser if you have an HE washing machine, or directly into the drum before loading the clothes if you have a non-HE washing machine.

Step 3


Without rinsing off the detergent, place the garment into the washing machine with other items. Leaving Tide detergent on the stain will give your wash that extra boost of cleaning power.

When the cycle is complete, unload the garments immediately.

If the stain persists after washing, pretreat using Tide HE Turbo Clean Liquid. Pour Tide on to cover stain and let set for 20 minutes. Then, rewash in warm water with 1 use of Tide before drying.
