    Wash in cold water and hang in the sunlight.

    You won't even be able to tell where the stains were. If you can, just put them back in the sun tomorrow.

    I used to soak all such poo stained clothes in napisan then wash and dry in sunlight. newbie poo is less stinky than toddler poo and is much easier to wash out of stuff.

    hint- always have 2 changes of clothes for you, a towel and some plastic bags in the car for poo-namis.

    Soaking in napisan and hanging clothes out in the sunlight works a treat

    I usually just wash in the normal wash as soon as I can (which in reality means within 1 - 2 days! ) with my normal laundry detergent (dynamo) and 90% of the stains come out without any hassles. I don't bother to soak. If there's still a stain then I use my Sard Wonder Stick stain removal stick and that usually does a pretty good job on stains.

    My dd would poo through her clothes at least once a day for 3 weeks ... til I moved her into bigger nappies (she was 8.5kg when I moved her into 10 - 15kg nappies and in retrospect I should have moved her to bigger nappies earlier). That's why I didn't bother soaking, etc, it was just too fiddly!

    OMG...thought I was the only one with a baby needing to upsize nappies way before the weight reccomendation!!
