July is National Ice Cream Month! Surprisingly, this isn’t just a random holiday that the ice cream parlors came up with long ago. In 1984, President Ronald Reagan designated July as National Ice Cream Month and the third Sunday of the month as National Ice Cream Day.
President Reagan felt that ice cream was a fun and nutritious treat that was enjoyed by over 90 percent of the population. We suppose he was right in creating a holiday that most people could benefit from!
As we wind down the celebrations of National Ice Cream Month, we are reminded why this treat is loved by so many, and why it’s perfect for any time of the year!

How to Remove Ice Cream Stains from Your Clothing
Even though ice cream is one of the most popular desserts in the United States, there is one downfall: it melts rather quickly. Whether you’re trying to lick an ice cream cone or scoop ice cream into your mouth, it’s not hard to drizzle some on yourself! Vanilla drizzles are one thing – but chocolate or brownie? Eh, not a good thing to have on your pants.
- For the best results, treat the stain immediately. Put the fabric into cold water and let it soak for 5-10 minutes.
- If you can still see the stain, soak the fabric for another 30 minutes, and rub a bit of laundry detergent into it. If you don’t have liquid detergent, use dish soap instead.
- After rinsing the stain, add a stain remover to the area and let it sit for 7-10 minutes.
- If the ice cream stain is dried, start by removing the crusty parts of the stain and then soaking the clothing for a half hour with liquid detergent or soap.
- Let regalia clean it for you!
Well, there you have it. Now you can have your ice cream and enjoy it too!
