Whereas an egg stain on your painted wall is easily removable if the stain is fresh. A dried stain is trickier to remove as it must be scraped from the wall. The scraping process can damage the wall's surface by creating a permanent scratch, but is avoidable by loosening the dried egg prior to removing the stain. A non-abrasive cleaner is the best cleaner for removing egg to prevent paint discolouration and surface scratches, according to "Stain Rescue!" by "Good Housekeeping."

Skill level:

Things you need

  1. 1

    Mix one cup of white vinegar with one cup of warm water and pour the solution into a spray bottle.

  2. 2

    Spray the homemade solution directly onto the dried-egg stain until the stain is saturated.

  3. 3

    Soak a clean sponge in hot water and wipe the stain with the sponge in a circular motion.

  4. 4

    Scrape with a paint scraper to remove the remaining egg from the wall. Scrape gently so you don't remove the paint or damage the wall.

  5. 5

    Dry the area by allowing it to air dry.
