How to get Stains out?

My daughter has some outfits that are stained, BUT have already been washed. So the stain is set in. Are there any solutions to getting them out?
Some she'll be grown out of soon, but we're keeping all her clothes in case we have another girl. I'd really hate to throw some of these away!

  • I don't know if it would work after there washed but try a dab of dish washing soap or some baking soda.

  • If you have already washed the clothes, there isn't much you can do to get a set in stain out. Sorry, you may end up having to throw out the clothes. If clothes are stained, they need to be treated right away. Usually once a stain is set in, it doesn't come out.
