Dropping eggs on the floor can result in a sticky mess. If the mess is not cleaned up swiftly, it can also result in a hardened egg yolk stain that is very difficult to remove. The good news is that when learning how to remove egg yolk stains from vinyl flooring is that you will have a bit more flexibility with the type of methods and tools that you use. Vinyl flooring is typically very durable, but it is still best to treat things lightly when cleaning up egg yolk stains.
- Use your butter knife, or kitchen spoon, to remove as much of the dried egg yolk as possible.
- Cover the stain with at least two tablespoons of baking soda, at least enough to thoroughly cover the stain.
- Carefully pour half a cup of white vinegar onto the stain and baking soda. The resulting reaction will help to work the egg yolk stain free from the vinyl flooring.
- Scrub at the stain using the scrubbing sponge, adding a bit of water if need be.
- Wipe clean with the paper towels and observe the stain closely.
If the stain is completely removed then you can clean the floors using your regular floor cleaning routines. If the stain is still visible, however, then you can dab a bit of rubbing alcohol onto a clean sponge and rub it into the stain until it starts to lift out.
