These top tips are brought to you by Precious April.
One minute your child is wearing the most beautiful outfit and you’re showing them off to family and friends….and the next minute? You’re cleaning up spit, vomit or a nappy explosion. When you’ve invested in a quality outfit for your little one, getting rid of nasty stains is a must to get the most wear out of it you can. But what are the best ways to remove stubborn stains?
We've put together some of our top tips for removing stains from baby clothes so your baby can keep looking their beautiful best in their new outfit.
Consult a stain removal guide
Yes, there is such a thing as a stain removal guide. This is one of the best resources for any parent struggling to get a stain out of their baby’s clothing. It will tell you the best products and instructions for getting rid of bodily fluids, baby formula, mud and more. You can even find printable guides online for easy reference.
Soak in a stain remover
If the stain guide hasn’t listed whatever you need to get rid of, give stained baby close a good soak in a stain remover. These include a store-bought product that you can find in the laundry aisle, such as Napisan (or anything that states ‘oxy’ on the label.) Simply add a scoop to a bucket of water and leave to soak.
Add a cup of hydrogen peroxide to whites
Babies look so lovely in white….but not so great in stained white. The main ingredient in commercially produced stain removers hydrogen peroxide, which you can pour directly onto clothing, or add a cup directly to a load of whites. It will help remove the stains and get white clothing looking back to its best. If you are concerned about leaving residue on the clothing, simply use the ‘rinse’ cycle after the wash to get rid of any residue.
Experiment with natural products
If the store-bought products simply aren’t getting the stains out, try using some common natural and household products you might even have in the house, such as baking soda, lemon juice and vinegar to tackle the stains.
Baking soda, for example, is safe to use on just about all fabrics, even the most delicate, and it helps to boost the detergent. Simply add a tablespoon or two in with the washing powder. You may find that gently rubbing lemon juice or vinegar into the fabric before washing will help lift the stain out.
