While I’m still a devoted lover of Oxi Clean, sometimes there are those stains on baby’s clothes that I just can’t get out. If there’s a particular substance I’m having trouble with, I usually just Google for help, but I just came across this comprehensive guide, Keep Baby Clothes Neat and Clean, that covers just about every stain I can think of. I hope this might help some of you out, too!
Readers, do you have any special tips for getting stains out? I’m always looking for more advice on how to keep baby clothes looking like new for as long as possible.
I always found the Dreft worked great on baby clothes!

For poopy- mustard colored stains, I would wet the clothes then put baking soda or washing soda right on it and scrub a little bit. Then I would soak in cold water with 2 TBS more of soda. It was the only thing I could find that took it out.
I have heard of Fels naptha but have been unable to find it at Macy's, Smiths and Walmart. Where did you find it and what isle?

Candice, I've found Fels Naptha at smaller, locally owned grocery stores in my area. Unfortunately, I've had problems with it taking the color out of clothes along with the stains!
I have Oxi clean, but I don't use it for getting out stains on baby clothes. Rub some Fels Naptha on the stain and put the clothing in the washer on the rinse cycle. I have even used this method on covers for diapers (on the elastic) and the stain has come out! This works well when you have an "explosion" and you have more than one piece of clothing that has to be cleaned.
Bac Out is THE BEST. It seems to take out anything!
