There are poop stains on some of my son's little clothes. I'm having a hard time getting them out. Does anyone have some suggestions? He is 2 weeks old and exclusively breastfed if that makes a difference.

I used this product called "Greased Lightning" It is sold at Walmart and Dollar Store. Spray it on then rinse in hot water. It was great!! It would usually erase the stain even before I put it in the washer. Just be sure that you do it right before you put them in the laundry. That is the most effective stain remover I found for that stain.

Agree with sticking them out in the sun! Sounds crazy, but just watch- those stains will disappear like magic in a few hours. If it's really cold where you are, you can even do it through a window. We use cloth diapers and I always stick the poopy ones out in the sun if there is any staining left after washing.

SUNSHINE, works every time for me, I also put the highchair tray in the sun if any stains on it and chopping boards and the baby bath, it will bleach and kill germs so a good idea. :)

I used to use Oxy Clean and let the clothes soak in the washer/Oxy/detergent for about 30 minutes. I would also let it "agitate" for a while then soak.

It sounds strange, but SUN. Yep rinse the item out or wash it and then put it in the sun to dry. I ran into that problem with both of my kids and it worked wonders. It doesn't even have to be outdoors, just somewhere in the house where the sun comes in.

Method hand soap works great! Also most shampoos will get more than laundry sprays out. I was the garment immediately in warm water than keep scrubbing soap on it.

Good luck!

Oxi clean makes a spray that works wonders. It's in a blue bottle with a yellow sprayer. They also make a detergent booster that works on crazy stains too. For really tough stains I usually so both. One in the load, the other on the clothes!

Cheapest Laundry brightener / stain remover - peroxide - just plain ol' brown bottled peroxide. For the stains, pour peroxide directly on them, let sit for a little bit, and they'll come out (it worked on my 4 year old's underpants when he got the stomach flu). Also, add 1/2 cup of peroxide to your loads of laundry and whites will be white and colors bright.

Hey,
Napisan works a treat. It's so cheap - you can get it form Wilko's - and just a couple of hours soaking will make your little man's clothes look good as new.
Get a big box in. You'll be using it for months, if not years!

Hey there! Well ebf poo is water soluble so you don't have to worry about washing out in the toilet or something. What I have found is that washing it out right away (usually under lukewarm water) is the best way to get poo out of clothing. You could also check out cloth diaper sites...they are usually full of great poo removal tips

Hi.. I used a bucket and soaked them in Nappysan and hot water. these days you can get Nappysan thats good for coloured clothes too. anything that has a stain in it went in to this bucket.. when my children had their own familys I passed it on and its been great. even my friends swear by it......if the stain is a bad one it may need a little longer then 24 hours and then just into a normal wash..
