Laundry soap choices

I'm a working mom who doesn’t always have time to wash clothes right away. So when my child has stained clothes I can’t always throw them in the washer, since I live in an apartment and the laundry room is always busy! My question is: what laundry soap is best to use on kid’s clothes to get old stains off?

    I soak them in water and oxiclean until I can wash. Or use a spray on the stain (shout or oxiclean or stainstick). If you use it the day of the stain then it really helps when you wash later

    I always (literally every day after daycare) take my sons shirt off and spray shout on the stains before throwing it in the hamper. I only do laundry on the weekends so I just let it soak until the weekend. Works wonders!

    Dreft! I am the same. I honestly get to my daughter's clothes about once a week and she is 16 months so the stain game is strong. I use Dreft stain remover and the detergent. They have a level 2 detergent that is for active toddlers, specifically for those types of stains. I would say that gets out about 90-95% of stains.

    Tide works great for us! It definitely worked better with those old washers that had the agitation from a stick down the middle. So now, I sometimes dab a bit of tide onto the stain before throwing it in the wash since we have those newer washers. For things that really stain like a dye— say blueberries and grass, I do like to put a bit of oxiclean on the spot

    Oxiclean spray and Dreft spray are the best!!

    Better than any stain removers moms k have recently learnt: Boil a kettle of hot water and pour it (the whole kettle full) straight into the stain. Sometimes you can assist with some dishsoap or stainremover or Sonett Gallsoap it doesn work right away but mostly does . the plain hot water is amazing on fruit stains especially! :-) Mud stains i would scrape off and then look up a video on it 😂
