How to Remove Egg Stains

Updated on April 8, 2012

If you're family is anything like me and my family, easter holds as many messes as it does fun and good times. Most recently, I ran into an issue where my step daughter ended up with some colorful egg yolk and dye in one of her favorite polyester backpacks. It was a gooey, yucky mess.

The good news: I found a way to get the yolky yuck out and bring the back pack back to it's originally clean state.

The better news: I'm going to share that method with you.

Ingredients

In order to clean egg yolk out of any type of cloth (other than silk), you need only two of the simplest ingredients. You probably already have both of them in your home:

  1. Iodized Salt
  2. Moist Baby Wipes

Seems to good to be true, right?

4 Easy Steps

  1. Pour copious amounts of salt all over the areas where the eggy mess has spread. (This works best with fresh egg messes, but will also work if the mess has started to dry)
  2. Allow the salt to settle for about 5 minutes or more. While you're doing this, you might find it useful to know that the salt is acting to soak up the grease and fat that the egg yolk is mostly made up from, and the parts of the egg that usually leave behind the worst stains.
  3. Brush the salt off of the areas where you applied it. You don't want to be too thorough. The main idea is to get rid of the heavy piles of salt.
  4. Use you're baby wipes to scrub through the rest of the egg stains until they are gone.

That's it!
