Hi, Can you tell me the best way to remove semen stains?
Share a Little Background Info
It happened naturally. 200 characters on how bed sheets got semen stains on them seems rather a lot. and i'm not sure you wish to know in such detail. It is not only semen stains that are on the bed sheets but other bodily fluids too. luckily there is no blood. I suppose 2 people just made love, several times is the answer. there i think that's 200
- normal wash doesn't work. (after a few days dry)
Fabric Content of Item (if appropriate)
Mary Marlowe Leverette, About.com Laundry & Laundry Rooms, says:
Stains that occur after sexual activity can contain semen, vaginal fluid, spermicide and lubricants. To remove the stains (wet or dry) hold the stained area facing down and flood the area with cold running water. This will force the stain away from the fabric fibers. Use a stain remover (Shout, Zout or Vaska Spotoff) as a pretreater or rub in a bit of liquid laundry detergent. Allow the stain remover to work for 5 to 10 minutes and then wash as usual.
