  • Laundry detergent
  • Carefully scrape any excess ketchup away without making the mess worse, a napkin or spoon will work fine for this purpose. Be careful not the dig the ketchup in deeper.

  • Run cold water through the back of the fabric as to not work the ketchup in further. Take a cloth and blot the ketchup spot. Keep running water through it and blotting it until you feel like no more is going to come out using this method.

  • Use your fingers or a cloth and rub laundry detergent into the stain. Rinse and repeat.
