  • I have found, yes it does if it's left on to dry. I had a bra that I just flung into the laundry basket, and later when I washed and dried it, there was a ring around the outline of the breastmilk spot. I just make sure to rinse my bras now if I leak.

  • I'm pretty sure it doesn't. I haven't noticed it staining anything

  • Mine left oily stains on all my shirts. I wound up having to spray all the spots with OxiClean at every wash.

  • I don't have a problem with breast milk because when my son was in the hospital he spit up on me and the stain was on there for like 2 months and got out.

  • It can. I have some shirts it washed out of fine and others were never the same.

  • Scrub it with Dawn dishsoap, then launder. Check if the stain's gone before drying it - if it's not gone, wash it again. Don't dry it til the stain is out or it'll be set in.
