How to remove stains on baby clothes?

There aren't many different stains that your babies get on clothes. Most of them are the spit-ups and spills of the formula and baby food. These stains mostly contain animal fat and these are slippery to remove.

Check these easy hacks to remove the tough and mild stains from your baby clothes. 

1.Dab white vinegar on the tough and smelly stains before the regular laundry wash 

Tough stains and smelly stains are major constraints while washing the baby clothes. Even after a couple of general washes– they persist in staying. In such a case, use the magical cleaning liquid "vinegar." Just dab the required amounts of liquid on the stained part and leave it for a while. Then wash it off with smooth detergent to remove the stain entirely.

2.Apply the paste of baking soda and vinegar on the stained area

Apart from a complete vinegar solution, the mixture of baking soda and vinegar also does magic for your baby's clothes. Prepare a natural paste and apply gently on the stained area; leave the clothes at room temperature for about 15 minutes before the usual detergent wash.

3.Use lemon essential oil added with vinegar to remove the tough-to-deal-with stains within minutes

The protein-filled food spills leave out the toughest of the stains than other substances. Removal of such stains after a while might be highly strenuous. In such a scenario, the lemon essential oil will be your perfect partner.

Rinse those little clothes in a bucket full of water with 8-10 drops of lemon essential oil and a cup of vinegar added. Allow them to soak for about 30 minutes before rinsing. This process does a fantastic job on "tough-to-deal-with" stains. 

4.Always use the baby clothes detergent irrespective of the toughness of stain

The old myth that general detergents are highly potent and tend to remove the stain faster is not necessarily true. Baby clothes are gentle and soft and require special care. Even if the stains on them are strong and sturdy, the baby detergents can handle them. However, precaution and extra measures are to be taken for extra clean and hassle-free washing.

5.Handle warm running water for protein stains instead of cold water, which strengthens the stain 

The identification of stain type plays a significant role in washing the baby's clothes. This is because of the extra care that is required for protein stains. Coldwater wash makes the protein stains set into the clothes instead of removal. Hence, warm running water helps you best in the removal of these stains.
