Chemical stains on laundry after washing in washing machine


If there are chemical stains on laundry after washing, refer to the suggestions below for step by step instructions.

  • There is no universal way to remove chemical stains.


Stains on clothing / fabrics can be caused by a chemical reaction of certain personal care products in combination with the detergent, including, but not limited to:

  • Household bleach.
  • Face cream.
  • Shampoo.
  • Perfumes.
  • Gel.
  • Hair dyes/dyes.


  • Make sure that the laundry does not come into contact with the above products.
  • Use a pre-wash cycle. The pre-wash cycle must be run without any detergent.
  • Use the special cycle for the items to be washed.
  • Make sure you use the right amount of detergent as recommended by the detergent manufacturer.
