How to Remove Hot Wing Stains

Hot wings, which are chicken wings drenched in sauce, are a delicious, but messy, snack. If you are eating these wings and have a dollop of sauce land on your favorite T-shirt or jeans, you may consider tossing your clothes in the garbage after a regular cycle in the wash doesn't remove the stain completely. Don't give up hope quite yet. To make your stain removal efforts more successful, treat the stain quickly and never dry a garment in the dryer without first checking to see that the stain is completely gone.

Hot wing stains can be tough to remove, but don't give up yet.

Step 1

Use a butter knife to remove any excess sauce.

Step 2

Turn the garment inside out, and rinse the back side of the stain under cold water.

Step 3

Turn the garment right side out, and pour a small amount of laundry detergent on the stain. Use your fingers to work the detergent into the fabric.

Step 4

Rinse the detergent out of the garment. Pour white vinegar onto the cloth, and blot (don't rub) at the stain. Rinse the vinegar out of the garment, and again, blot at the stain with more vinegar. Do this until the stain is no longer visible.

Step 5

Apply more detergent to the stain, and rinse well. If the stain is still visible, you can pour a small amount of detergent on the garment and let it sit for 30 minutes. Rinse well.
