Question: How Do I Remove Maple Syrup Stains from Clothes?
Maple Syrup is a treat whether you spread it on pancakes or make an Autumn Salad with a touch of maple. Learn how to remove any stains that may drip down.
Answer:

Maple syrup or corn syrup stains should be removed as soon as possible. Begin by using a blunt kitchen knife to remove any excess syrup still on the fabric. For washable fabrics, spot treat the stain with a bit of liquid laundry detergent and then wash as recommended on the garment label.

If the garment is dry clean only, point out and identify the stain to your professional cleaner. If you are using a home dry cleaning kit, be sure to treat the stain with the provided stain remover before putting the garment in the dryer bag.
