    Removing stains?

    What do you all reccomend to remove stains from babies clothes? I have tried dreft in the spray bottle that is supposed to remove stains. I have also tried clorox 2 and shout and nothing seems to get the stains out competely. I am a mom of 7 month old twins so my life if pretty crazy, so I sometimes get to put something on the stains before they set in sometimes I do not get around to it too quickly. Never the less it seems like the stain removers i have tried wirk only half the time. Any suggestions?

    Dawn dishdetergent! This is what I use on my breastfed babies clothes and the poop stains always come out! You have to let it soak in for a minute and then use warm water and scrub it out with your nail or a little brush of some kind.

    Yep!!!! Dish detergent works wonders.... but like Baby said---you have to let the clothes soak at least a little bit and use something to scrub like mad to get the stains out )) Nails, brush or by rubbing---and use really warm water. Other than that----spray n' wash does nothing for me etc...

    I just buy clothes that are dark and have lots of patterns! Ok I am kidding - well a bit serious.

    I don't worry about it too much.

    I have a wet bucket set up with an oxy solution in it for "blow outs" and such. Make sure it's a chlorine bleach free oxy solution (I can't remember the name of the stuff) otherwise it will weaken the fabric.

    When her clothes get really soiled I don't pretreat, just toss'm in the bucket. I only do her laundry a couple of times a week, so if I left her clothes the stains would set in. This way they soak, and all I do is toss them in on a rinse cycle, then wash as per usual.
