How to Get a Spaghetti Sauce Stain Out of Your Cloths

by Contributor

It can happen to anyone. One bad slurp when eating your spaghetti dinner and you’ll have a stain on your shirt. While a spaghetti sauce stain can look like a disaster, it doesn’t have to ruin your shirt. With a simple technique, you should be able to remove the unsightly stain.

Items you will need

  • Clean cloth or paper towel
  • Liquid laundry detergent
Step 1

Blot the stain with a clean, dry cloth or paper towel. Never rub the stain because it will just drive the stain further into your clothes.

Step 2

Turn the clothing article inside out and run it under cold water. With the water coming from behind the stain, it will help it to push the stain out.

Step 3

Carefully rub liquid detergent in the stain and let sit for at least a half an hour.

Step 4

Wash the clothing article just as you normally would but under cold water.


  • The sooner that you can get to the stain, the easier of a time you will have to remove it.
