Dawn dish soap (original Blue color) It gets the grease out, and I found that baby poop always left a greasy residue, but Dawn always got the stain out. I bought a small bottle and have it sitting on a shelf above my daughter hamper, When there is a stain of any sort, I put some Dawn on it right away then toss it in the hamper! Some stains I scrub before I wash them. But Dawn has worked on set in grease stains I have had on my clothes. I'm even taking some on vacation with me next week just incase I spill something! Love it! And it's cheap and lasts forever! Good luck.

I just use the Costco brand environmentally friendly detergent and all of the stains have come out of his clothes. If it is really bad, I will soak it in warm water first. But I rinse the clothes as soon as it happens and they usually go right into the washing machine.

I use cloth diapers and EBF, and for poop stains I use the same routine with my CD'd.
Cold water rinse, then wash with (I use 1/4 detergent) in warm or hot water, hang to dry any stained clothes/diapers in the sun and when I get home from work, the stains are all gone!
Wish I had have known that with baby #1, he projectile pooped on one of my favorite shirts and I threw it away!

I tried Resolve with Shout pretreat and it does NOT work. I sprayed the clothing immediately when I change him and then thow them in his hamper. I even handwash the bad ones before spraying with the pretreat. Dont bother using the Resolve it doesnt work!
EDIT: I just read using hot water sets the stain, so maybe it is user error on my part. I will try using cold water and let you know next time I do wash ( about a week)

I use a non-toxic, all natural product from Shaklee called Nature Bright Laundry Booster and Stain Remover. It is more powerful than Oxi-Clean, and it is safe for your baby, guaranteed. If you want to order it, go to www.shaklee.net/caranitz

Oxyclean never really worked for me, I used the baby oxyclean spray as well as normal powder....I also found that if you accidentally soak an item in the powder & water too long, the stain still stays but it takes the color out of screen print....lol!
I found an all natural stain remover stick at a great store called "Once Upon a Child" It gets everything out, poop stains and more....new and even old!

you have to be careful what u put on the clothes because a babies skin is so scensitive......i just kept a bucket in my shower or by the washing machine...and everytime one of the peices would get soiled i would throw it in the bucket to soak with woolite.......then after a day or two ...depended how many i had that day i would wash them ......worked great......u just have to try not to let it dry on too much
