How to Remove Egg Stains

Spilled food is one of the most common reasons that triggers the need of cleaning. Most stains are easily removed if treated immediately by dabbing at the affected area with cold water and an absorbent material. Egg stains are tougher to remove because of their viscosity. If you allow an egg stain to dry, it will take you more time to deal with the stain but you will still be able to remove it without using expensive cleaning products.


  1. Use a spoon to remove as much excess egg as possible from the stained area. You can also use a blunt scraper, kitchen spatula or dull knife instead of spoon.
  2. Make a mixture of 1 cup lukewarm water and 2 tablespoons of ammonia. The ammonia will prevent the egg from sticking to the surface, making the stain easier to remove, according to cleaners Parsons Green.
  3. Pour the solution into a clean, spray bottle and apply it to the egg stain. Be careful not to oversaturate the surface, especially if it is a soft one, such as carpeting or clothing.
  4. Use an absorbent cloth or terry towel to blot the egg stain until it is gone.
  5. Prepare a solution of 1 cup of cold water and 1 teaspoon of liquid dish soap. Mix well.
  6. Moisten a clean cloth with the soapy solution, then blot at the area to remove the ammonia residue.

If you are trying to get rid of a dried egg stain, leave the ammonia solution to soak into it for about 30 minutes before blotting. If you still cannot remove the stain, consider hiring cleaners Parsons Green to do the job instead of you.
Note: Never rub a stain, especially on carpets and fabrics, as this may spread the stain and damage the fabric.
