Let garment dry completely with stain. Remove the excess mustard by scraping off with a knife. Do not rub the garment. Treat the stain by soaking with liquid laundry detergent and then rinse. Wash in cool water. Do not dry the garment if the stain remains. Repeat the steps above until stain is removed.
