There is no denying that a Sunday roast would be incomplete without gravy. It’s delicious and adds flavour to the beef and potatoes! However, sometimes gravy ends up on your clothes accidentally as you are eating your tasty dinner. Due to its oily base, it can be a tricky stain to remove but don’t worry – in this blog, we’ll guide you on how to remove gravy stains!
Step 1 – Act Fast
The trick to removing gravy stains is to act fast. Gravy is composed of a mixture of grease and protein so if you don’t treat the stain immediately, it will stick to your clothes and be even harder to remove. And let’s face it, gravy looks way better on the plate than it does on clothes!
Step 2 – Scrape Away The Gravy
Once you’ve seen the gravy stains on your clothes, get a butter knife and try to scrape off the excess gravy from the fabric.
Step 3 – Apply a Stain Remover or Laundry Detergent
Then, get either a stain remover or laundry detergent and apply it to the stained area to remove gravy stains. Try not to pour too much otherwise it may ruin the fabric of your garment. When you’ve poured the stain remover or laundry detergent, wait 15 minutes before moving on to step number 4.
Step 4 – Wash In Hot Water
It’s essential you thoroughly check your garment after the wash cycle has finished to see if the gravy stains are still there. If they are there, we strongly advise AGAINST putting your garment in the tumble dryer because the high heat will make the stain nearly impossible to remove.
If you are happy with the results, either air-dry the garment or put it in the tumble dryer.
The proof is in the pudding – follow these steps to remove gravy stains and you’ll start 2023 with no stains on your favourite clothes!

Everybody loves desserts, especially on national dessert day. Calories don’t count on this day (don’t spoil the fun!) but the laundry does count when you accidentally spill dessert on your clothes. Fortunately, we are here to guide you on how to remove the most common dessert stains.
1. Cake Icing Stains
Words cannot describe how great cake is; It’s creamy and sweet, and sometimes, it can be annoying when it lands on your lap! The icing part of the cake especially can be tedious to remove from your clothes due to its oily fat and artificial pigment.
To remove the cake icing stain, get a butter knife to scrape it and then rinse the stain with cold water. Afterwards, treat the stained area with a stain remover and allow it to sit for 10-15 minutes.
2. Ice Cream Stains
Summer may be over but it’s still not too cold for ice cream, especially in October! Ice cream brings smiles to faces, but like the gloomy autumn days, ice cream stains on your clothes bring frowns.
First things first, treat the stain immediately and don’t allow it to settle further into the fabric. Scrape the ice cream stain off using a butter knife and then pour some laundry detergent into the stain.
Read our blog here for a full guide on removing ice cream stains.
3. Jelly Stains
Jelly is a delightful dessert that bursts with tasty fruity flavour. No matter what fruit your jelly is, it can wobble our laundry routine with an unexpected spill on your clothes.
Much like cake icing and ice cream stains, don’t let jelly stains settle into your clothes. Immediately scrape them off using a butter knife, wet a paper towel and blob the clothing and then proceed to pour stain remover.
It’s very important to remind you that do not to put any dessert-stained garments into the dryer because the high heat will cause the stain to remain. Always be sure that stains have been removed first.
We hope you enjoy national dessert day. If you stumble on any of these common dessert stains, remember that Laundryheap is available to help you! We’ll remove any stains for you!
