How to Remove Barbecue Sauce Stains. Backyard barbecues are favorite family activities, especially if Dad does the cooking. However, it's easy to get a barbecue sauce stain on your clothing. Here's a few simple steps to get that barbecue sauce stain out in no time.
Remove excess barbecue sauce off the stained item. Scrape it off with your finger, a sponge or a paper towel.
Rinse the stained fabric with cold water. Run the water through the back of the barbecue sauce stain to help get the stain out of the item.
Rub detergent into the barbecue sauce stain. You can use a regular liquid detergent or a solvent such as glycerin. Use your fingers or a sponge to work the detergent into the fabric. Continue rubbing the stain with detergent until the stain no longer appears and then rinse with cold water.
Use a spray or a gel stain remover and apply it to the barbecue stain. Allow the item to sit for 5 to 15 minutes for best results.
Wash your item with detergent in a regular wash cycle.
Check the item for any remaining evidence of the barbecue sauce stain after washing. If any stain remains, repeat Step 3 through Step 5.
Dry the item in your clothes dryer or hang the item in the sun to dry.
