  • It's very difficult! The only thing I ever found that really helped was to keep a soak bucket in the laundry room with water and Biz. When they would spit up, I'd put it in the bucket until I had enough for a load or for a couple of days, which ever came first. It helped, but even that didn't always get it out if it had set too long before I put it in to soak. Good luck!

  • I've been using Borax with our laundry detergent. No stains yet (keep praying it

  • My son was fed soy formula when he was a baby. Everything ended up being stained. I would soak the worst stained clothes/burp clothes in a bucket of water and Dreft (baby detergent in a pink box) , then throw it all in the washer the next day. It even worked with stained clothing I bought at garage sales!
