As you may have heard today, Monica Lewinsky, the woman that had an affair with President Bill Clinton,breaks her silence about the scandalous affair in a Vanity Fair interview/essay.

Monica Lewinsky is now 40 and she has a Master’s Degree in Social Psychology. She wants to burn her beret and bury her blue dress, but what would you do in Monica Lewinsky’s situation?

No, I am not talking about getting caught having an affair with a married man. I am talking about removing semen stains or sex stains from a suit or dress. Similar to a blood stain, semen is very difficult to remove from clothing or fabrics like bed sheets.

Semen and sex stains are difficult to remove from fabrics because it has protein in it. When protein heats up, it cooks. To prevent your very own Monica Lewinsky moment, try to hand wash the semen or sex stains with cold water ( same goes for blood stains). This will help prevent the semen from chemically reacting to heat and making it extremely difficult to remove from your clothing. Protein be gone!

It is important to note that pre-ejaculation is harder to remove than semen because the pre-ejaculation has a pH of a mild household bleach (12.0). Semen only has a pH of 7.2 - 8.0. You will have the best chance to remove the semen stain if you immediately wash out the stain with cold water. Once you have completed the cold rinse, you can use a biological detergent to fully clean the fabric.
