The Two Other Laundry Tools You Need

Preparation is a parent’s best method for fighting stains. That's why we recommend keeping the following in your laundry room:

To work the stain remover into fibers (without damaging fabrics), we recommend auto detailing, laundry, paint, makeup, or even old toothbrushes. Next, to dislodge lingering stains and odors, you'll need to do a load of laundry. Make sure that you do it with our 99.4% Natural Laundry Detergent: It's tough on grime but its hypoallergenic formula was developed by biochemists to be gentle on sensitive skin.

1. How to Get Food Stains out of Baby Clothes

It's a fact of life: Once your baby starts eating solids, you'll need to get baby food stains out of clothes on the regular.

Start by rinsing the garment under cold water ASAP. Dab with a bit of laundry detergent, let it sit for 30 minutes, and run a normal washing machine cycle. For heavy-duty stain duty, double up with our Natural Stain Remover (you may need to let the formula set for up to 8 hours).

2. How to Get Milk Stains out of Baby Clothes

If you've ever dropped breast milk on your baby's clothes, you know it can harden into a sour, yellow mess. Instead of crying over spilt milk, rinse the affected area with cold water as soon as possible (hot water will “cook” milk into the fabric).

If you don’t have a change of clothes, blot the spill with a clean cloth or paper towel. Work from the outside edge of the stain toward the center. Launder as usual.

How to Remove Old Milk Stains from Baby Clothes

For older residue, spray the affected area with Natural Stain Remover and agitate with a soft brush (or rub the fabric together). We recommend waiting at least 8 hours, but the longer it sits, the better.

Launder normally with an 'extra rinse' setting. Even though our Natural Laundry Detergent was especially formulated to leave zero residue behind, the second cycle ensures that all stain particles are rinsed away.

3. How to Get Formula Stains out of Baby Clothes

Thoroughly soak the garment in cold water ASAP. Next, use a soft brush to scrub away as much of the formula as you can. If the stain persists, treat with our Natural Stain Remover and follow the steps from #1.

Pro Tip: Since most baby formulas primarily consist of milk, they’re high in protein and should treated with an enzyme called protease.

4. How to Remove Spit-up Stains

Deal with spit-up by gently blotting it with cool water and a clean cloth. If you can't get around to it until later, try to remove any dry, crusty bits with a soft brush.

Follow all of the same baby stain remover tips above, then wash on a warm cycle with a natural laundry detergent.

5. How to Get Baby Poop out of Clothes

Cleaning baby poop out of clothes happens a lot more than you'd think. Not to worry! The best stain remover for baby poop might surprise you: It’s dish soap!

While the stain is still fresh (and after you've flushed any solids down the toilet), rinse the garment in cold, running water from the outside of the fabric. Apply Natural Dish Soap directly to the stain, agitate it well with a brush, then rinse with more cold water. Repeat as often as necessary.

Apply your baby stain remover, then let it sit for at least an hour to ensure that the plant enzymes destroy all toxic remnants. Finally, throw it in the washing machine on a regular cycle.

6. How to Get Urine out of Baby Clothes

If dealt with immediately, removing urine from baby clothes is pretty easy: Just rinse the item in cold water and toss in the washing machine. For older urine stains, thoroughly spray the item with Puracy Stain Remover, let it soak for at least an hour, and wash on a hot cycle. If the stains don’t disappear immediately, don't throw the item in the dryer! Reapply the stain remover and run for one more laundry cycle.
