  • the only way i could get it out is if i took it right away and put it in the washer or a bucket of water..

  • Rinse the stain a soon as you can. Obviously cleaning baby up and setting him somewhere safe is more important than running to warm water for the outfit. lol Anyway if you rinse it then wash it shortly after it shouldn't stain.

    Oxyclean if it has had time to dry seemed to work with most stains my son could make. lol

  • I always rinsed them and then used spray and wash.

  • I always used the Dreft spray. And washed in whatever detergent I was using (I use just about any brand, as long as it's free and clear). It always worked. I found that the Dreft spray worked on just about any stain I can think of.

  • The earlier you can treat it the better. After it dries it's almosst hopeless. (sorry) Dreft makes a spray you can use; we liked it. that, a toothbrush and some elbow grease. Hubby was always waaayyy better at it than I was.

  • Make sure you rinse it as SOON as it happens. I use oxiclean and a toothbrush, make a paste out of it and SCRUB LOL

  • This has happend a LOT with my daughter, I always just wash out as much poop as possible, with a hard running tap or the shower, then soak it in cold water. No stain hasn't come out after washing with a pre wash]

  • We use spray and wash on my daughters clothes she gets that same problem sometimes or it going up her back we also use it for spit up and her clothes look brand new. Maybe try that? Good luck.
