  • It depends on what it is. The last thing I trashed was an old towel that was covered in puke. If its worth saving, I wash it. If its old, it's gone.

  • Rinse it out and in the washer.

  • Depends on what it is. I try to rinse stuff before throwing it in the washer, particularly if it's chunky vomit.

    I did throw away an old towel once. I was a little sickly myself, and since the towel was one from the "rag-bag" anyway - I just didn't find it worth the trouble.

  • Wash if you can, Throw away if its not worth saving. But always wash it with other things that have been sick on...... You dont want to wash it with other dirty clothes & them all come out smelling like puke........ & run them on a cycle or an extra pre-wash, or whatever.

    Hope your child gets to feeling better.
