Solve Mildew Stains At Home

We’ll admit it. Shout® products aren’t always the answer, but when they aren’t, we’ll always tell you what is.

Step 1.

Treat the stain by laundering with detergent in the warmest water indicated on the garment label. Add bleach if the garment label indicates the item is bleachable.

Step 2.

If the stain remains, sponge it with a paste of lemon juice and salt.

Step 3.

Have patience. Leave the paste on the stain for 15 minutes.

Step 4.

Wash your stained clothing in the warmest water your item recommends.

Shout® Pro Tip. Drying clothes in the sun may also help to bleach out the mildew stain.

Shout® Warning. A mildew stain may be permanent, and it can also weaken fibers to leave a hole. It’s a sad side of the stain-solving business. We hope the steps above will pull you through.
