Removing a Fresh Soy Sauce Stain with Detergent

To remove a soy sauce stain, you’ll need to put in some time and effort. The following are the procedure to remove a fresh soy sauce stain from cloth.

  • Step 1: If the soy stain is still wet, you can try to carefully blot it with a clean cloth. Try not to rub the stain any deeper into the clothing or furniture, let the cloth lift as much of the wet stain as possible.
  • Step 2: If you are working on clothing, turn it inside out and run it under a cold tap. Hopefully, a strong flow of cold water will start to help remove the stain.
  • Step 3: Liquid laundry detergent can be used to treat marks and stains. You can rub the detergent into the stain using your thumb and forefinger. Gently massage the liquid into the stain.
  • Step 4: After a few minutes of massaging, you can then rinse the material under the tap. If the stain does not disappear, you can continue with a few more steps.

Using a Bleaching Agent to Remove Soy Sauce Stains

Using a bleaching agent such as lemon juice, vinegar, hydrogen peroxide or chlorine bleach has the chance to permanently damage your clothing.

It may be difficult to predict how a bleaching agent will affect garments, but it is vital not to attempt on clothing with bright colors or extensively patterned designs.

  • Step 5: Household bleaching agents like white vinegar or lemon juice are gentler and safer to use than hydrogen peroxide or chlorine bleach.
    Whichever bleaching agent you decide to use, dilute it with water and then gently work it into the stain with a cloth.
    If after soaking for a few minutes the stain is still visible you can try using a less diluted solution.
  • Step 6: The final step is to soak the clothing in a liquid detergent and warm water mixture for a minimum of 30 minutes.
    Your clothing can now be placed in the washer set to the highest temperature indicated for the fabric type.

Note: If after washing the stain can still be detected you should cycle through the steps again before drying your clothing.
Letting the stain dry out fully will make the soy sauce stain even harder to get out.
