Someone was eating a candy bar and a piece fell on the cotton upholstery of our patio chaise.
It is fresh and appears to be more taffy than chocolate but there is chocolate in it..short of stripping the fabric off the cushion and placing it in the freezer what would you suggest?

Try this Dave

I'd do everything it says except putting it in the washing machine. Hand wash only. And make sure the dye is set first.

I have done a lot of cleaning and there are some basic guidelines.  I wrote an article over at Jack Carr's web site a few years ago.   Rather than repeat it, here's the link:
http://www.carrscorner.com/cleaning.php


Most foods and beverages are water-based, so they clean with water.   The only glitch might be food dyes that need oxidation (most natural and synthetic dyes) or reduction (red food dye).

I remember once early in my career, fresh out of training, but before I read "Chemistry for Dummies" and the light went on.   I had a 1/4" chocolate spot on a chair.   It was an S-coded fabric, and it was one of those 20% that really meant S.  I worked for a long time with Q-tips and solvent based cleaners and it did not budge.   Before giving up I dampened a white towel and blotted it.   In about 5 seconds, the chocolate was gone and in my towel.

Turkey grease.  Many moons ago I saved turkey grease in a bowl while making gravy.  While we ate dinner a cat managed to consume the best part of the bowl of turkey grease.  Some hours later we heard the unmistakeable sounds of a cat preparing to vomit.  Yep, the entire contents of the poor thing's stomach were hurled up onto the tourquoise carpet in front of the stove.  The dogs were on it instantaneously.  And they returned to the site for nearly a month after the fact, idly lapping the stain site.  There was a place that was incredibly clean for months after they'd given up on lapping it...

Just thought I'd share...  ::)
