Question how do I get rid of

Diaper rash cream marks. I know I shouldn't use the cream with cloth but this morning when my son woke up he had a really bad looking red spot. I couldn't just leave him there to suffer so I took my chances with the cream hoping if I only did it once it would wash off. It didn't. So how do you suggest I get it to come off my Fuzzi bunz?

Re: how do I get rid of

umm i think you can use spray and wash

hopefully another mama has a better idea!

if it happens again put a piece of fleece between your ds's bottom and the FB this works great to keep the cream off the FB

No suggestions on getting it off other than repeated washings (I STILL have one stained with BUtt Paste from forever ago) but a suggestion to use Burt's Bees diaper cream--you can get it from many stores and it's NEVER stained our diapers. We use this with every diaper change...

Thanks I'll have to remember next time I'm out at the store to get some Burts bees. I have the stain on a couple of dipes. I really hope it comes out. It's desitin.

Thanks for the link, but I still don't know how to get the stain out.

Re: how do I get rid of

What kind of rash cream did you use?

You can try using some Dawn and scrubbing the stain with a toothbrush.

I agree with the dawn. It should break up the oils. Good luck!

Re: how do I get rid of

Sorry, when i posted i was laying down nursing DS for a nap so i didn't have the ability to type, just copy and paste links with the mouse .

Anyway, I have gotten a rash cream stain out before (or greatly lessened it) with a combination of scrubbing with Dawn and sun. Maybe you could try some oxyclean too.

i posted the link to show which rash creams are ok (Balmex works best for us personally and always washes out without staining) and which aren't (desitin and a&d are both on the 'no' list).
