Removing a Hand Sanitizer Stain on a Comforter?

My son spilled hand sanitizer on his comforter. When I found it, it had dried into a hard layer. I washed it, but did not dry it in the dryer. It was still there. I rewashed it with laundry soap rubbed into the hard, crusty stain. Still there after washing. I have now tried Spot Shot, which I love for carpets, but it is still there! It looks like a layer of dried glue, light whitish, gray. It does not look like it only lightened the cloth, it looks like a layer of something hard and dried on it. If anyone has any suggestions I would love that. Thank you! :)

Try putting just that part of the comforter into a pail of plain water and let it sit for a few days to see if it will soften the sanitizer. You will want to put the comforter and pail into a large tote, bathtub or sink to keep water from wicking through the comforter and getting everything around it wet. Good luck.

Not all sanitizer's are creative equal! they all have different variations. This variations may ruin, fade or often eat away a hard or fabric surface . I would suggest a professional cleaners , i would ask them in advance or contact this professional link -

Hair spray is an excellent way to break down the hand sanitizer that has hardened on the comforter. Try spraying the hair spray on the blanket and allow it to sit.


If this is not removing the hardened sanitizer from the blanket you can use rubbing alcohol. These two items will break down the components of the sanitizer and allow you to get it off the blanket.
