    Default Removing stains from kids clothing

    A friend gave me some infant boy clothes leftover from a garage sale. Many
    of the items have stains. Is there any way to get them looking nice. I assume
    that they have been set in the dryer.

    Also I have a pair of purple pants that my dd was wearing when she ate some
    chocolate cake. I have washed them using all and shout and borax and have not
    hung them to dry each time but the stain is still there. Any tips.

    For the baby clothes try soaking them in color safe bleach for a few
    days. Make sure the water is warm..not cold or hot. If there are still
    stains or as a pretreatment use spray N wash dual power. I got some
    clothes from my Cousin that had stains in them and just used the spray N
    wash dual power and all the stains came out.

    if not the spray and wash i would try the liquid tide and wash in liquid tide as
    well. This has removed stains set into clothes for me before...i hope it works.

    Greased Lightning gets out even the toughest, set in stains here at my house.
    Never tried it on old clothes...just ones that accidentally went through the
    dryer.

    I have gotten many stains out of my 14 year olds clothes. I wet the stain
    down with shout than rub oxiclean on it and let it sit. This also took blood
    off a pair of jeans that had been dried before the stain was notices.

    If the clothing is light or white I use liquid dishwasher detergent ( generic cascade)
    1/2 cup to warm water and soak overnight. For blood I use a generic oxi-clean and rub into it, then soak in clorox II/warm water over night, I will actually rub in some straight cloroxII on a stubborn stain. Also on white or light fabric peroxide will take out blood, ink and grass.
    For colors I rub in clorox II on the stain, or shout, and ammonia has worked. Another good thing is barkeeper's friend. I just use what I have on hand at the time.
    For really bad persperation, urine, or even smoke odors I have washed in vinegar added to the wash load, that works wonders. Another trick is to put in a bag with newspapers over night and seal, then wash with vinegar. In my washer there is a compartment to add the liquid bleach and I add 1/4 cup of vinegar in there.
    For ink rub some wet zest soap into it and that is great!
