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.
