Protein stains are biological and come from human animal substances, such as egg yolk, milk, perspiration, vomit, and bodily fluids. While even the site of these stains are enough to send many into a panic, never fear. These, too, can be effectively treated and removed.

Apply product(s): Apply Stain Solution directly to the affected area. Then sprinkle All-Purpose Bleach Alternative on the Stain Solution to create a powerful paste.

Work the stain: Work the solution into the fabric using your finger or our Stain Brush.

Pour water on the stain: For added cleaning power, pour boiling water from a kettle onto the affected area. (Pour from a safe height so the water won’t splash on you.) The force of the pouring water helps to do the work. You can also use hot water from a faucet set to its highest water pressure output. (When treating bloodstains, always use cold water.)

Soak up to 30 minutes: Soak the item in a basin filled with hot water and 1 capful of All-Purpose Bleach Alternative. (Use cold water for bloodstains.)

Reapply or repeat as needed: If the stain is not completely gone, repeat this process until satisfied.

For urine stains and odors: Soak the item in a basin of hot water mixed with ¼ cup of Scented Vinegar. This will help break up the uric acid to remove the odor. (Use cold water for bloodstains.)

Launder the item: Wash according to our instructions.
