Removing Vomit

By Dr. Laundry November 5, 2012

My son’s sheets were the unfortunate victim of the stomach flu. How can I remove the vomit?

Sorry to hear about your son! I hope he gets better quickly. As for the sheets, you will want to get vomit stains out as soon as possible! Immediately scrape off the excess, and thoroughly rinse the affected area with cold water

FROM HERE, IF YOUR STAINED ITEM IS WHITE:


  1. Wash in the hottest water recommended on the care label using detergent and 3/4 cup Clorox® Regular-Bleach.

  2. Air dry the item and check to make sure the stain is completely removed. If stain remains, repeat steps above.


IF YOUR STAINED ITEM HAS COLOR

  1. Wash immediately in the warmest water recommended on the care label using detergent and Clorox2® Stain Remover and Color Booster.

  2. Air dry the item and check to make sure the stain is completely removed. If stain remains, repeat steps above.
