Introduction: How to Get Rid of Sticky Neosporin Residue on Clothing?
Although it is a very effective medication, neosporin comes with the risk of leaving stains and residue on clothing. This can be frustrating for many people because they are often unable to clean it out of their clothing. The best way to remove neosporin contamination from clothes is to carefully use a dryer sheet with your laundry when possible as this will help remove any residual sticky residue left behind after cleaning the stain.
Use a Stain Remover
Before adding the clothing item to the washer, test an inconspicuous area of the fabric. This is particularly a good idea if you are not sure what color your clothing item is. Neosporin tends to leave a white residue on whatever fabric it touches, so using this test will allow you to see if it causes any discoloration that would make the clothing look unpleasant when worn later.
The Best Ways to Get Off Sticky Neosporin Residue
The most effective and easiest methods for removing neosporin stains from clothing are using a mixture of corn starch and water. This mixture should be put into a spray bottle and sprayed onto the affected area. The area is then covered with another piece of cloth that is soaked in warm water, making sure to keep the stain on top. The area that has been covered is then left to sit for several minutes to soak up the corn starch and Neosporin stains. Afterward, a piece of clean absorbent cloth is used and the residue is wiped off in order to remove any remaining residue. This method also works on stains from salves and other liquid medications used for cuts.
Another effective way to remove Neosporin stains is to use acetone nail polish remover. With this method, too, a solution of acetone and water should be prepared before being applied to the affected area. The affected can be treated in exactly the same way as the corn starch remedy. However, it seems to work faster than the previously mentioned method. It also does not require that you cover the stain with cloth beforehand.
Tips for Removing the Tiniest Amounts of Neosporin From Your Clothes
Some of the Nebraska state’s laws allow for an exception to get rid of a sticky neosporin residue on clothing. This exception says that if the Neosporin residue is not visible, then usage of soap and water is allowed. Because the corn starch and water mixture may not be visible, use soap and water along with another piece of cloth to soak up any remaining Neosporin residue that has been left behind after cleaning the stain. If any additional Neosporin residue remains in the clothing after washing it, then use a scouring pad that is soaked with soap and water along with corn starch to scrub out any remaining residue.

Neosporin is a prescription topical antibiotic that is used to treat minor cuts and scrapes. This medication is sometimes called Neosporin Ointment, Neosporin Cream or Neosporin Nasal Gel.
How Much Should You Remove
The Nebraska state’s law does not allow for the usage of a mixture that is too strong. Therefore, when using the corn starch and water mixture, it is best to remove only as much of the residue as you need to in order to get rid of it. Be cautious when applying more corn starch and more water onto the clothing after removing some Neosporin residue as too much of either ingredient will remove moisture from the fabric of your clothing. So, if your clothing is not already wet, then it would still be a good idea to remove any residue that is left behind.
