I use plain ol' baking soda in the wash with my regular detergent. We buy it in 5 gallon buckets at the wholesale club or at a pool supply place. I throw a cup in with every load. You can also soak the stain & make a paste(just add water) & let it sit for a few hours. I have also used baby oxy clean from time to time. The best thing you can do is not let the stain sit long enough to set. Wash as soon as possible. Also if the stain is still there after first wash don't dry it. Treat the stain & wash again. Heat sets them & it will never come out.

Totally Toddler! Its a detergent spray that works wonders! They also sell it in wipe form for the diaper bag. The bottle says that it gets rid of formula stains and IT DOES! (gets rid of all of the milk stains and all of my husbands stains too!

I have always used spray and wash but I spray a lot on and I let it soak in for at least 10 min. Never had a stain stay yet.

I have discovered that Oxyclean works wonderfully for most stains, but it seems to work best when the clothes are soaked for a day or two. I have been using a bucket with a scoop of Oxyclean for each gallon of hot water. It even got mildew out of a shirt and dirt and grease out of my husbands work clothes. Works better than bleach on my whites.

Thank you for the great tip! My husband brings his work clothes to wash at home. :)

I swear by Baby Dreft stain remover. I use it immediately when a stain occurs and hand wash it. If it isnt completely out it will be by the time it goes in the wash. I use it on my husbands shirts and even rug stains.

I swear by oxy spray and powder. If the spray does not take everything out I let it soak in oxy powder for a day or so and most everything comes out!!

Like Melissa, I soak the clothes in Nappysan and hot water (usually overnight) and then put them through the machine as normal.

I always us Lemon Juice. You put lemon juice on the stain and let it sit in the sun for about an hour and then wash it. It works for me, looks like there was never a stain there. This works for most stains.



Hope this helps

Hi Cassie - I have found that a product called Stain Away from Melaleuca, is the best I have come across for anything. It's a product that is environmentally safe and so nicer for everyone. If you have questions, let me know. Good luck. Shelley

I have always used Spray-N-Wash Resolve Dual Power on my daughter's clothes. It has always worked wonders for me, although don't let it soak for over 15 or 20 minutes because it will take the color right out of a garment.
