How do you get egg yolk out of white carpet? My sweet angel baby got into my eggs an now I have a 2 year old and white carpet covered in egg yolk. I have about an hour and a half before my husband gets home and it has to be gone by then. I have tried baking soda, peroxide, and woolite carpet cleaner. Is there something that I am missing. All help is greatly appreciated.

If you have some clorox wipes, try them. That's what seems to work the best for me...the other night my 3 year old dumped a whole plate of spaghetti in the rug and the clorox wipes got it all out.

What's the urgency before your husband gets home?!? Eggs are so yucky to clean up, even on the hard floor!! I hate it.

Well you can use egg yolks to remove coffee or chocolate stains from carpet so it shouldn't be too hard to remove the egg yolk...

You could try a solution of 50% white vinegar to 50% water and wet and blot ..

Since egg yolk is mostly protein and so is blood I know for a fact that if you rub salt into a blood stain then pour straight peroxide onto the salt and work it in a blood stain will completely disappear so you might try that ...

The problem with the clorox wipes is the bleach in them may discolor your carpet depending on what the fiber make up is in your carpet .. The clorox can cause yellowing..
vinegar and peroxide wont... If you are going to try something with bleaching properties on carpet you should use oxi clean or color safe bleach.. white carpet isn't the same as white clothing.

Tell your husband to go pound sand! Accidents happen.........especially with a baby.

i tried the clorox and it does stain it yellow. I moved the loveseat and the coffee table over so I put the rug over the stain. When he got home he was upset over the moved furniture but I told him to get used to it. He went into his bedroom and that was the end of it. When he leaves tonight I will think of something else to do. I do appreciate all of you gals help. Thank you so much.

I used those shampoos for carpet cleaning and it worked out great.

I have had great success, even on old set stains with ammonia and HOT water. Gently brush it on and blot it up with an old white towel. I don't know however if you already put clorox on it?? You can never mix ammonia with clorox.
My husband is in the floor covering business and when I asked him how to get a stain out of our carpet he said "scissors" Great help- huh???

My mother and grandmother came over while he was out with the baby and used the carpet cleaner then let it dry. After I fluffed the carpe back into position rearranged the furniture and viola If you did not know about the stain you would not be able to see it. Husband never even knew! But thank you for all the help. I'll know what to do next time.

Glad you got the stain out... and I understand about the husband situation... My husband is a complete control freak (not saying yours is) but he flips if anything is different.. ie moved furniture, water ring on the coffee table , dog chewed the couch.....

I feel your pain ! hahaha
