How do you get baby poop out of their clothes? I am breast feeding and her poop is so hard to get out of clothes when it leaks. Any advice?

I love OxyClean and Greased Lightning. Also, try to keep it as wet as possible until you have time to wash, even if it's just in water, that way the stain won't set.

I use Totally Toddler Nursery Stain Remover/Laundry Stain Remover. Just spray it on as soon as you take the clothes off and you can leave it til you do your next load. It's easy, made for baby clothes and the bottle lasts a long time. You can find it @ Babies R Us and probably Walmart.

The easiest way that does the least damage to the clothes and baby's skin is letting the clothes sit in the sun for a while. Works on breastfed poop like a CHARM! I am a big fan of shout also, but don't like to use it on my baby's clothes, as it has ingredients that can irritate skin. Oxiclean can be hard on the fabric.

Yes, oxy clean works great for baby poop! We use the oxy clean baby spray, it works kind of like spray n'wash. Just spray the stain and throw it in with the rest of the laundry. But as Tara said, putting a scoop of oxy clean in the wash works wonders too!

Good Luck!

I soak the clothes in warm water and then add a scoop of baby oxy clean before I wash them. Its worked every time so far. Good luck!

Try Feltz Naptha, its a bar soap and is great at removing all kinds of stains like baby food, baby poop, spit up, blood, grass stains. I scrub the clothes in a sink of cold water. If it seems to be a stubborn stain then scrub it and let it soak in the water for a while. It always comes out; at least for me!

I use Spray and Wash and Shout for the not so messy ones. Cold water and lots of spray and wash and scrub it around. I also spray them again before they hit the wash and I have no stains yet. My son also likes to explode out of his diaper daily LOL

I use cloth diapers, and the recommended washing to prevent stains is 1x in cold water followed by 1x in hot water + an extra rinse. I've also heard that sunning can fade baby poop stains. You can always soak in Oxyclean, too!
