  • Spray in Wash Stain Stick. It looks like a big glue stick, you rub it on the stain and throw it in the hamper for a couple of days, then wash it. It won't stain or ruin your clothes no matter how long you leave the chemicals on. You can find it at most Walmart in the laundry Aisle nest to the regular Spray in Wash . It even can take out ink pen if put on before the stain sits too long

  • baking soda, sprinkle some on at a little bit of water rub it into the stain and was as normal, it works for me, my dd had a beautiful white dress and she got chocolate all over it, and i used the baking soda for it and its good as new! just make a little paste out of it. goodluck

  • Well after my son's done eating I take a damp wash clothe and clean off his face, hands, then his clothes and bib. Then I just throw them in the wash and everything comes out!

    I think the trick is to not let it get hard and sit.

  • blue original Dawn dishsoap. Even works on stains that wave been washed and dried. Put it on the cloths and throw it in the hamper, forget about it for at least a couple days, you can go longer. Wash and it should come out. Also try drying them in the sun. You would be amazed at what the sun can get out
