    Default Kids clothing / stains won't go away

    Good morning all,

    Just wondering where do you buy your clothing for the kids / baby? I am finding in some materials the stains won't go away even though they get soaked in napisan.

    It's quiet annoying as some clothes are expensive.

    Any tips? Will they go away?

    TIA

    I've always found a good soak & a day out in the sun has done wonders for stains.

    DD wears mostly clothes from Kmart, Big W & Target. Plenty of Bonds clothes as well. She got spaghetti bolognese stains all over a pair of Bonds shorts the other day so I hung them out in the sun & you can't even see them now!

    I normally spray the stain. Then make up a paste with napisan and put it on the clothes. I then wash as normal with napisan added to the wash. Some clothes need another go if the stain is really bad.

    I have found the cheap clothes best and less / kmart, the stains don't come out as well. The clothes I have spent more money on wash and wear very well. In saying that, they are only in the little clothes for such a short period of time.

    I found making a paste with napisan and water and covering the stain and washing as normal works with some things.

    Depending on the type of stain, I mainly use lots of elbow grease scrubbing with some Sard Wonder Soap, it gets most stubborn stains out, much more than I have found the spray trigger stain removers.

    Eucalyptus Oil is another good one.

    A soak in some nappysan or the like and some bleaching by the sun on the clothesline.

    Be careful not to set the stain, so if you're soaking or washing out stains, make sure you use the right water temp for the stain.

    Thank you all, I usually buy from target, pumpkin, myer, some big w not much and bonds. I have noticed the sun helps, napisan helps also with a good soak, but some just cant get rid off

    I had a grease stain on ds1's shirt the other day, scrubbed it with dishwashing liquid and then rubbed with talc - worked a treat.

    Bicarb and dishwashing liquid also works on grease stains
