Here are the steps you need to follow for removing Bepanthen stain from your clothes:
1. Get the required things
You’ll need a few tools, equipment, and material to get rid of those Bepanthen stains from your clothes.
We made a quick list to tell you about everything you will need:
Equipment you need:

Materials you need:

2. Remove solid Bepanthen present over the surface
Take a plastic edge or knife and remove the solid Bepanthen present on the surface of the cloth.
Remove as much as possible and leave the rest of it. Avoid rubbing because it will cause the Bepanthen to further penetrate the fabric of the cloth, making it more difficult to remove.
3. Apply stain remover or laundry detergent
Take the stain remover and apply it over the Bepanthen stain on your clothes.Use your finger to properly absorb the stain remover into the Bepanthen stain.
We recommend you get a stain remover with lipase enzyme because it will help breakdown the oily and sticky content of Bepanthen stain.
If you do not have a stain remover then you can use a laundry detergent (must be heavy-duty) with stain-removing enzymes as an alternative.
After applying the solution, leave the clothes for about 15 minutes. Then take a soft-bristled brush and use it to scrub the Bepanthen stain. Rinse the stained spot with hot water and move to the next step.
4. Wash the clothes
Now wash the Bepanthen stained clothes in maximum hot water allowed on the care label of your cloth.
Once the clothes are washed then check if the stain is gone or not.
If the Bepanthen stain is gone then put the clothes in the dryer.
If the Bepanthen stain is still there then avoid putting the clothes in the dryer because the intense heat of the dryer will make the stains permanent and nearly impossible to remove.
5. Use oxygen-based bleach to remove dyes
If the Bepanthen stains are colored then it may also leave colored stains behind.
Mix oxygen-based bleach with cold water and create a solution. Put your cloth inside it for about 8 hours then check if the stains are gone or not.
