  • soak them in a mixture of oxy clean and water, or spray some shout advanced on them.

  • omg the remedies I learned after having my 1st child, she always got her formula-food everywhere but her mouth! lol K this will sound funny, but works like a charm...
    1/2 a tablespoon of ivory dish soap
    1 tablespoon of tooth paste
    1/2 tablespoon of baking soda
    apply to stains and scrub with a tooth brush. Let sit for however long you can-(best to let it dry on it's own) then when you wash it, it'll be like new!! enjoy

  • Is he allergic to soap? I used to bleach them, then run the wash a second time using detergent. That way I washed out the bleach smell. I just used regular detergent.

  • Also, u could try washing one or two outfits alone or maybe with a load of urs, see if it starts irritating him u can put him right into an outfit that is washed in what it is normally washed in and know it won't work for him...sry...
