I HIGHLY recommend Dreft Stain Remover (in the spray bottle)... Works like a charm! I've used it with both my babies. It gets out EVERYTHING from berry juice to tough baby poo stains. There's not much that won't come out if you spray the clothing item, let it sit for a few minutes and then launder using the Dreft liquid detergent. Target sells both products. Good luck! :) ~ Lisa Boyd

I use Spray n' Wash dual cleaner. I freaking love it! It even takes out weeks old stains!

I also use the stain stick...and have them strategically placed in the house, wherever I would underss my kids (when they were babies/toddlers). I'd have one in eachof their rooms by their laundary basket, one in the bathroom, one in the laundary room (in case I forgot to stain stick it before I took the clothes to the laundary room. And, one in the diaper bag. Worked well. Just remember to put it on as soon as you change your kid's clothes

I make a paste out of Oxyclean powder and water, rub it on the stain and let it sit for a bit then wash as usual and the stains almost always come out. I also add a scoop of Oxyclean powder to every wash load along with my detergent.

I like to make a paste out of BIZ and let it sit. I works great. Also you can try "Awesome" it works well for some stains and is cheep; $1.

I'm the same way! I only do all of that work for my daughters 'good clothes'. For the others, her play clothes and whatnot, I just let them stay stained, so I guess I'm not really one to help here.

I have been using the Spray and Wash stick. It has worked great on all my kids stains so far. I still have a little one that is eating that horrible orange staining baby food and it takes that out like its nothing, along with red Kool-aid. I keep it in the bathroom and put it on the clothes while the kids are in the bath in the evening. Then I just throw the clothes in the basket. You can wait up to a week before you wash the items so its really simple and fast.

thanks megan...but...that sounds like alot of work...



maybe i should clarify: by the time i do laundry i have a pile of stained clothes in my basket ...usually 2 or 3 loads. i know..if i go tthe stains out right away, it would be easier, but let's just call me forgetful. i'm hoping to avoid trying every stain remover on the market to find the best one. so far i think spray n wash is better than shout...but that's all i've got so far...anyone try any others?

Take your regular detergent and an old toothbrush (make sure you only use it for this because dirt may get in it and defeat the purpose).

Get the stain a little damp and pour on some detergent, take the tooth brush and rub and rub until the detergent turns white. Rinse a little and then repeat once more.

Wash the clothing and the stain should be gone. I've used this on blood, food, and SOME marker.
