Scrape dried egg yolk from fabric, using the tip of a spoon or a dull table knife. If you're away from home and can't treat the spot immediately, dab the egg yolk with a damp cloth or paper towel. Use lukewarm water, as hot water will set a protein stain. Avoid rubbing, as this can set the stain.
Saturate the fabric with a stain removal spray or stick, and then allow the product to penetrate the egg yolk for about a minute. Alternatively, use a heavy-duty liquid laundry detergent. Place a few drops of the detergent in a sink filled with warm water, and then soak the garment for 30 minutes.
Launder the garment as directed on the garment's care tag. If the egg yolk has been completely removed, dry the garment as directed. If the stain is still visible, repeat the stain-removal treatment.
