I have a two month old and she is a bit of a messy eater. She has a tendency to leak the formula down her cheeks and a lot of the time it winds up around the neck of her shirt or onesie and leaves a yellow residue that I can NEVER get out! She has so many cute clothes that I want her to continue wearing, but they look dirty. I've tried bleach and different types of detergents and I can't find anything that works. PLEASE HELP!!!

DITTO! on the oxi clean! i swear by that stuff! you can also try tucking a burp cloth underneath the bottle and her lower lip and around her neck to help catch dribbles before they go down her neck.

Fels-Naptha soap. It's a big bar of yellow soap. It is in a wrapper that's white. You find it in the laundry aisle. It costs about 99cents. It is magic. It gets any kind of stain out.

shout! it works wonders!!! my son was (still is at 2) a very messy eater and formula sucks to get out. pour some shout on it rub it in a bit (ive always used a toothbrush) let it sit for 2 hrs - over night depending on the stain. and its gone!! i always have the stuff in my house it works for everything. i have a 5 yr old, a 2 yr old and im due on dec 12. i believe if u go to the shout website u can get samples of it to try.. once u try it ull be hooked though :) hope this helps

I take my daughter's clothes off before I feed her just to avoid that. Grab a wipie after she eats, pop her clothes back on and done.

any type of pre treat stain remover with enzymes in it...look at the back panel...they remove formula awesome and you just wash it out with your normal laundry detergent

my son was a messy eater and a spitter when he was on formula and what i found was baby oxy spray. once he finished eating i would change his shirt (or whatever he spit up on!) and spray the baby oxy right onto it, scrub it in then throw it into the laundry basket. once laundry day came i just gave it another little spray and into the washer like always. none of my son's baby clothes had any stains once i found this stuff
