stains on wool

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
OK, I know this has been posted before but for some reason it's not letting me search the diapering forum. So, dd inevitably got poop on her new wool cover - how do they know when they have a new dipe or cover on?! I've tried a little Bac-out, handwashed in eucalan, and I still have a small yellow BF poop stain. I even tried sunning! Any suggestions how to get it out?
TIA!

I had the same problem! I tried everything you listed and it still wouldn't come out. I gave up wool for that reason but now I'm buying wool again but only darker colors. I'm going to be watching this thread though for some ideas.

I am sorry to say that I have never gotten the poop stains out of my lighter wool. I even tried a gentle cycle in the machine to no avail...

I've had good luck w/ using Eucalan and scrubbing the stained area against itself (do ykwim?). Put a dollup of Eucalan on it (make sure the cover is wet) and work it into the stained area. Then let it soak in water and more Eucalan for a while (20 min or so) and check it. Repeat once or twice. Let it dry in the sun too.

That's gotten all the poop stains out of our covers. They do keep fading w/ each wash too.

HTH~

dye them?

I didn't find that Eucalan was strong enough to get serious poop out, but Dr. Bronner's is. Also, if you can do an ultra gentle cycle in your machine, I found that works better than by hand. You'd have to lanolize after doing a real wash in Dr. B's though.

I had a poop stain on my turnip cover a couple of months ago. I couldn't get it out with extra scrubbing, but the last time Sam wore it the stain was gone...maybe time and gentle machine washes??
