Breastfed poop

Anyone have a special mixture they use for poop stains? Can’t get them out of my babies clothing! I am breastfeeding her.

    Gasoline and a match 🤣. In all seriousness: soak with soap all day, then apply shout stain spray overnight, scrub with toothbrush, wash in machine next day.

    Shout works for me. Just make sure to rinse it as soon as it happens as well as you can, then before it dries add shout until you can wash it

    This works great for me and it's only a dollar a bar at Walmart in the laundry aisle next to the stuff to make your own soap. Just wet the spot and rub the bar on it. You can let it sit until you can wash it.

    If there’s a blowout or ours pees before the next diaper is on we throw it in the wash with a small scoop of Oxyclean and our normal detergent (Tide Free&Clear). That means we do at least one load of laundry a day. If it’s particularly stubborn I soak in Oxyclean and run a small load with offending items on warm or hot and that usually gets any lingering stains out.

    I would soak it in hot water and dish soap till I had time to deal with it, then I’d scrub with more dish soap. Dawn all the way.

    I’ve read it online so I can’t take credit but Squeezing lemon juice works , especially for vitamin stains!

    I agree with shout and fels naphtha. Not sure what you are using for detergent, but all free and clear is fantastic on protein messes. A combo of shout and all had cured almost 100% of our poop and breastfed for up stains, even on washed/ dried and stored clothing!

    Dreft spray. Even works on old stains!

    I never was able to get them out but I was lazy. I’ve read that the sun can bleach them out all you have to do it set them out in the sun on a drying rack or line after you wash.

    Fels Naptha! Seriously so easy.. even days later, just wet & scrub. You can let it sit to pre-treat or just wash right away and hope for the best. It works wonders!

    I run under warm water and rub the fabric of the stained area together with regular hand soap until the stain is pretty much gone, then let it dry. Then I pre-treat with dreft spray and throw it in the wash - hasn’t failed me yet!

    I use Netepur soap by H2 at Home, and then add baby oxiclean to the load. Sometimes I also soak in the sink with oxiclean

    Just wash it (with whatever) then put it out in the sun. 100% gone everytime!

    Hydrogen peroxide and/or hanging in the sun

    I use a spray bottle of hydrogen peroxide, dish soap and lemon essential oil. Gets even old stains out.
