The Ultimate Stain Remover

If you’ve ever had a baby, you know baby spit-up and blow-out diapers cause the most horrific stains. The worst part is, these stains darken over time, which was a great surprise when I pulled my baby clothes out of storage to use on my second child. I’ve done some research on stain removal, combined the results and come up with a great formula:

  • Cover the stain with Dawn liquid dish soap.
  • Sprinkle Oxy Clean powder on top of the dish soap and let it sit (On fresh stains, I only let it sit for about half an hour. On set stains, I let it sit for at least 2 hours).
  • Then just toss the garment in the washing machine with your other clothes.

This formula worked for me on fresh stains, stains that have been washed and dried once, and stains that have set for 3 years. Good luck!!

    I’ve never tried Oxyclean, even though I’ve heard so much about it. I think I’m going to have to pick some up.

    Maybe it ends up being the same- but I mix 1/2 dawn original dish detergent (NOT concentrated or other flavor) and 1/2 hydrogen peroxide in a spray bottle. After the mixture sits a while it turns clear. It takes out ALL out baby stains! I just spray the stain and leave it on there til I wash that load….
