Mix baking soda and water (roughly 1 tablespoon to 1 cup).

Spray on clothes.

Lay in sun.

Voila!

Re: Getting stains out of baby clothes...ideas?

watching this thread. i'm looking for a stain remover for "washable" paints in clothing. I've had a heck of a time with this after my daughter comes home from daycare covered in paints that won't budge from her clothes or her skin. Makes me sad

For food/biological stains I use Bac-out 99% of the time. In 1% of the cases, it hasn't worked completely and then, I've resorted to Shout Advance with Oxiclean (I think that's what it's called).

I always use an eco-friendly oxygen bleach, like Oxiclean and while that lightened them, it did not eliminate it alone.

One thing I was told about this is to not treat the paint stains with anything, just launder them in detergent asap. My dd went to an arts preschool and this was definitely true for her clothes.

For other stains, I have had success with the Spray and Wash dual formula (I forget what exactly it's called, but it has 2 solutions in the bottle that mix when you apply them to the stain). Just let it sit a while (like hours, not minutes).

Re: Getting stains out of baby clothes...ideas?

I'm getting all of my clothes ready for a big local consignment sale and found some had stains that had "popped up" in storage. I soaked them all for a day in water w/ laundry det, bleach (clorox 2 for colors) and oxy clean. Worked like a charm, and simple, too! Only a few had stains that remained and I attacked those w/ the Clorox pen (they were white shirts).

Good luck, mama!
