The Science Behind Cheeto Stains
Cheetos stains clothes because the orange color on the snack is made from a combination of food coloring and cheese powder. The food coloring and cheese powder can cling to the fibers of the fabric, making it difficult to remove. Additionally, the oils in the snack can also contribute to the staining by making the color and residue more difficult to remove.
Blot up as much of the stain as possible with a clean, dry cloth or paper towel.
Apply a stain remover or laundry detergent to the affected area and let it sit for 5-10 minutes.
Mix together 1 tablespoon of white vinegar and 1 tablespoon of baking soda to create a paste. Apply the paste to the stain and gently scrub the area with a stiff-bristled brush or toothbrush.
Rinse the garment with cool water to remove the paste.
If the stain is still visible, pour hydrogen peroxide directly on the stain and let it sit for 5-10 minutes.
Wash the garment on the warmest setting recommended on the care label with detergent.
Note: Always read and follow the care label instructions and test any solution on an inconspicuous area of the garment before using.
