What stain treatment do you use on your kids clothes? My 2 year old is really hard on clothes.

anything she eats or drinks winds up on her clothes. If she plays outside they are covered in dirt. Her clothes always ends up throwen away after about a month or so because they are so stained up. I tried diffrent sprays and they don't get out all the stains. My mom just gave me a whole new words robe for her from a lady at work who's daughter doesn't fit them anymore they are like name brand clothes (my kids don't get name brand clothes unless someone buys or gives them to us). They are really nice so I hate for her to only wear them a fewtimes before she gets them ruined. So what can I use or what do you use?

  • we use purex it gets some of them clean, but not all of them. It is a powder though. I pour it in the wash and it gets some to most of them clean not all of them. Do I have to pour the powder onto the clothing and scrub it?

  • I have a old dish pan that I put like 3 scoops of oxi clean in and hot water, soak the stained clothes over night then drain and wash normal and almost all my stains are gone.

  • I use spray n wash with resolve and haven't had any stains. you can treat either when you put it in the hamper or just before you wash.

  • i use a natural stain treater in combination with oxi clean. you could also try a bar of soap stain remover, i forget what it is called, you can find it with the laundry works pretty well. i have one boy like that too!
