If you’ve got a baby, you’ve got stains. There’s nothing worse than missing one and then pulling it out of the dryer fearing that a favorite outfit has been ruined forever, right?
Well, we’ve got you covered. Here are 5 of the most common stains your little ones leave behind and how to get them out of their precious clothes.
Let’s just go ahead and get this one out of the way. It’s gross, but if you get to those messes early, they’re also fairly easy to remove. Just rinse off any excess (sorry) poop and then soak it in pretreater for five minutes before washing it.
Remove the bib/clothing and run it under super hot water, then pretreat and wash on warm.
More blotting, more hot water, and Dawn in a bowl. If your paints are oil-based, first throw them out. Then use turpentine on the stain.
You don’t want to think about your little one getting banged up, but mine is 13-months-old and has bled on himself (and me) half a dozen times. If yours is similarly inclined, start with cold water and a bar of soap directly on the stain. Then, soak it with pretreater and wash on warm.
#5. Spit-Up (Or Full-On Vomit)
Rinse off the chunks and then cover the stain with baking soda before washing. If your kid throws up something super fun like tomatoes or peas, add some club soda to the mix.
