      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.

      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!
