Did you know that it is said that if a bird poops on you, you should expect a lot of fortune and good luck in your life? I know how annoying it is to have to clean bird poop but I am saying this because you shouldn’t get too angry or annoyed – just tell yourself that this is a good sign and don’t waste your energy any further.
Instead, immediately get to cleaning!
How to Remove Bird Poop From Your Clothes?
Believe it or not, the first thing you need to do is just wait for the poop to dry. When it’s hardened, you will easily remove it rather than when it’s in liquid form and you can smear it and make an even bigger mess. This is why I do not recommend you start rubbing or wiping the area with a paper towel. Just let it dry and don’t touch the area until the poop is hard.
Next, scrape it off with a dull knife or a spoon depending on what you have available at the moment.
If, however, you are out and you do not have the patience or stomach to let the poop dry while the clothing item is on you, get a credit card, a knife, or something else with which you can scoop the poop while at the same time avoiding smearing it all over your clothes.
No matter which step you followed, next it’s time to blot the stain with a damp cloth or paper towel. Again, don’t rub or wipe – gently blot.
As soon as you can, you have to flush the area with cold water holding the fabric on the wrong side facing the running water. The force and pressure will push the residue from the clothing item.
In case the stain remains due to the dye, you need to use oxygen bleach diluted in water. When you do dilute the product, submerge the clothing piece in there and let it sit for a few hours – the longer it soaks, the better!
And last – wash the shirt, pants, or other clothing items either by hand or in the washing machine.
