I had stains from formula that I struggled with, then I bought an enzyme cleaner from Melaleuca, its called Mela Brite and it removes all types of stains, and is gentle.

Try getting this pink bar of soap called Zote. My friend Amanda used it on my son's white onsies that were stained with red and purple juice and of course poo. I couldn't believe how clean and new they looked. Not even bleach was able to do that. Just rub the Zote on the wet clothes and let sit for at least an hour or two (just to deep into the stain) and then toss into the washer. You might be surprised how well it works. You can even toss in with other clothes and your regular laundry detergent. Let me know if it works for you!

I use regular unscented Pine sol on all my kids clothes. All you do is dab a lil on the stain and let it soak over night and it comes out, I haven't found anything it doesn't take out yet!!!!

I swear by the oxy baby spray as well as the powder. I spray the clothes with the spray and then soak them in a small tub of luke warm water that is mixed with the oxy powder. scrub stains with a toothbrush. once the stain is faded wash as usual

You can use soda water on stains too. It works! Hair shampoos work on some stains too. The best thing is getting them rinsed asap. Good luck!

hi there. I recently had to baptize my second daughter. I had no idea that my oldest daughters gown had formula spilled on it when it was put up. The night before the baptism I used oxi clean. I took some of the granules and rubbed them into the gown with some water and an old toothbrush. Let is sit for a while and then washed it in regular detergent with a little of the oxi clean in the water. The gown is now whiter than ever. There are no more stains and the whole entire gown is bright white. Since then I now use oxi clean in my regular washes with my regular detergent and use oxi clean as a pre soaker prior to washing on bad stains. Good Luck.

Dreft has a stain remover that works well. It gets all the formula stains out from my son's clothes.

oxi baby. get it at target. fill the washer with the clothes ( I do all the babies clothes) on the warmest setting you have and let them soak overnight. Wash as normal the next day. It gets everything out. Remember to check them BEFORE you dry them because drying sets the stain. Good luck :)

I use pink solution! They make a laundry bar, I have never scrumed a stain, nor are any of my or my sons cloths stained! My friend had black SHARPE marker and I was able to get it out of her daughters white pants. and My other friend had red wine on her white jeans and no problem removed. I make my own laundry soap only is about $6 a 8 L jug! and rub the bar over any stain works every time!

If it's diaper stains, sunlight works. Hang them outside to dry and that will remove the stains.

I use shout or spray n wash works great spray and rub stain tog with out fit or an old toothbrush works good leave on for about 5 min then throw in washer it will not bleach anything if u do it that way.

My daughters grandmother told me to try pinesol or something of the same consistency. It really does work. It gets everything out. Just make sure the stain is out before drying or it will take a lot more to get it out. Good luck hun
