There are two types of egg stains – one caused by raw eggs and one caused by greasy cooked eggs. This article covers the removing of stains caused by raw eggs. Keep in mind that if you act enough quickly, you may even avoid the egg stain and treat only an egg spill which is far much easier to remove. Here are the instructions on how to remove egg stains:
- If you catch the spill immediately, quickly grab a spoon and scoop up as much of the spilled egg as you can. Before the area dries, blot up the remaining of the egg with a clean white cotton cloth dampened in water, then blot dry. If you treat the affected area right away, there is a high chance the egg stain to vanish completely, if not, proceed to the next step.
- Combine 1 tablespoon of clear household ammonia and ½ cup of water. Pour a small amount of the solution over the egg stain at a time and blot it up with a clean white cloth between applications.
- If some of the egg stain remains, cleaners at Bell Green suggest using a solution of 1 teaspoon of dish-washing detergent and 1 cup of water to get it out completely of the carpet. Work the solution into the stained area using a soft cloth, then rinse the area with plain water and blot dry. Repeat until the stain is gone.
- For dried egg stains, scrape off the crust first using a spoon or a dull knife, then follow the steps above to completely remove the stain.
