How to Clean Food Coloring Stains
by Eddie Paoletti

If you have worked with food coloring in any way before, you would know how hard it is to get the stain out! Follow the directions below in order to get rid of all the tough food coloring stains that you may have on your hands, table, clothes, and maybe even the floor.

Once you have used food coloring, you may notice it has gotten on your clothing, hands, table, and floor. Don't panic, there is a way to remove this! First, pull out some ordinary shaving cream, this will do the trick! With the peroxide and other chemicals inside the shaving cream, this helps get out the tough food coloring spot. Spray a good amount on the blemish and let it sit for up to five minutes. After the five minutes are up, if the spot is on the table or floor use a dry cloth and start rubbing it into its place. You will see the food coloring start to fade away shortly after. If the food coloring was set into your hands, wash them with the shaving cream and some cold water. This will fade the shaving cream a lot, but the more you wash your hands, the more of the food coloring you will remove. If your stain is on your clothing, rub some shaving cream on the spot without water first. Then, after you didn't use water, rub some water in with it. Apply this again and then let it sit.

Lastly, you should put the clothing into the wash and the spot should then be completely gone!

No more food coloring stains to worry about! You should be satisfied with the way you took out the spot.
