Yep, that's an original question alright!  The answer is no (speaking as
one who has been sprayed many times).  There is nothing in the whale's blow
that could stain clothing - the blow is exhaled gases (i.e. carbon dioxide
etc) and (mostly) water atomized by the great pressure of air coming out of
the blowholes.
