    Default Stubborn food stain cleaning products

    Just wondering if anyone has any recommendations on how to get mutant food stains out of bubs clothes?

    I use organic soaker, prewash spray & powder and it seems to be buckling under the pressure of her baby led weaning escapades. I don't want to use harsh chemicals so if anyone has any natural or 'baby friendly' options they could share that would be terrific.

    Stains are mainly veggies, pasta sauces, meat etc but they seem to be buggers to get out....even with vigorous scrubbing and soaking!

    I just make sure I wash them immediately (spray with preen never soak!). Now I strip bub off when she is eating, saves lots of washing.

    I like the white king (for colours) spray It seems to lift off the dirt and mess quite well before a wash but I also use it for when my dd spills stuff on our rug. I'll spray it on wait a few minutes and clean with a brush or cloth

    I bought a little cake of soap from our DIY store. It's called EXIT. Absolutely brilliant.i normally give clothes a soak, then rub any spots with exit.wash as normal. I'm yet to have a stain I couldn't get out. It's great on carpets etc too. About $6 a bar.

    I swear by velvet soap and good old sunlight.

    I give the stain a good scrub with the soap then straight in to the wash and hang out in the sun, there haven't been many stains haven' t come out, on more stubborn stains I sometimes need to do it more than once but it rarely fails me

    I read on pintrest about a remedy- two parts hydrogen peroxide to one part dish wash liquid.

    mix in spray bottle and spray... leave to sit a couple mins then wipe, or throw in wash.

    Supposed to work wonders. I'm trying it today and I'll let you know.
