Postby lucky4you » Mon Apr 09, 2007 9:34 am

What do youuse to get poo stains off of their clothes? I also have some that must be breastmilk stains because they are way at the top.

Oxyclean works wonders. They make a baby safe version (not quite as good, but very gently) that I've found at Target.

I got my Mom to clean some for me. I told her to use whatever she thought would work. She used oxyclean and it worked. I got my sister to buy me some. It's probably the regular kind. But, I can wash it with my baby detergent after. Thanks!

Dreft stain remover will take any stain out! I've used it on my husband's clothes to remove grease, and blood and both came perfectly clean!

For formula stains try rubbing some unseasoned meat tenderizer (any brand) on the stain before washing, it works 8O !!! I find it works best if you wet or dampen the stain first so the the seasoning will stick to the material. I use a spray bottle with water to wet the stains, then I rub the tenderizor on top. Make sure its the white UNSEASONED one or it won't work. I seen this tip on TV when The Queen of Clean was on a talk show and I just had to try it. My friends are always asking me how I keep Jenna's burp cloths and bibs so clean :wink: .

I use baby oxiclean and it works great!.

Oh BLUE, I'm so jealous b/c your baby has so much more hair then mine..hee hee!!!

And Lucky4you its so nice to see another southern La. lady here!!!! I live near Lafourche Parish (about 45 min from N.O).

LUCKY I am from Vacherie. DH and I have passed thru Chauvin/Bourg several times (not lately) whenever we go to Grand Isle, Cocodrie, or Point-aux-chen to go fishing. One of Dh's friends has a camp there. So far I think we are the only two La. gals here. What a small world :wink: .

Someone on the breastfeeding forum posted that all you need to clean breastmilk poop stains is cold water and sun. I tried it and sure enough it works like a charm!! You have to see it to believe it - needs a few hours, but it works! Soak the garment as soon as you can, then lay it out in the sun or hang it in a window. I even got stains out that had been washed and dried into garments.

HTH!
