So I took baby clothes out of storage (after about 3.5 yrs) & they have yellow stains all over them despite being 100% clean in appearance before being put away.  The stains can only be breastmilk or saliva.  DS barely ever spit up tho' he did drool a lot.  So frustrating...I thought I'd be taking rewashing a bunch of pristine baby clothes.


Anyone have any tried & true solutions?  They don't have to be natural, they just need to work.  I can always rewash them after using a conventional product.

I swear by oxy clean!!!

I've gotten grass stains out, blood and spaghetti.  

In your case I'd spray a little stain remover on the stains, sprinkle some oxyclean on the spots and wash as normal (your fav detertegent and a sprinkle of oxyclean)...then dry them in the sunlight.   The dryer will set the stain.   and if the sun can get out poop stains, I'll bet it will clear up your stains too.  

As a side note.....I don't dry my kids clothes (save undies and socks) and most of ours too.  I hang them on hangers and let dry on the shower rod in the kids bath.
