Things You Will Need:

- Act quickly. Ideally, you should treat the stain immediately – don’t let the butter dry on the fabric. Gently scrape off as much butter from your clothes as possible.
- Dab the stain. Take a clean, white cloth and dampen it with luke warm water. Dab at the stained area, trying not to spread the stain.
- Apply laundry detergent. Apply some laundry detergent directly onto the stain and work it into a lather.

- Try other treatments. If the stain still remains, apply some white vinegar or cleansing foam. Alternatively, use lemon juice or non-acetone nail polish.
- Wash the clothes. Wash the clothes on the warmest setting that is suitable for the fabric.
- Be gentle – scrubbing the stain vigorously may only make it worse.
