Help! We use wool covers with snap ins and and sometime the poo gets on the inside of the covers. Immediately after changing I take a rinse it off and then wash, but I cannot seem to get the stain out? Any ideas? What do you all use and how?
I have been using sensiclean, but just recently got some eucalan.

If it's not a dark color you can try setting it in a sunny window when it's drying & the sun may take care of it. I just washed a couple that had some poo & let them soak for the afternoon, but the colors are dark enough I don't see a stain.

HTH

I have had great luck just soaking the cover (this works with my soakers too) in cold water overnight. Then I just gently rub some soap (dr. bronners) over the stain.

I always hand washed my wool and got stains. So once I put them on gentle cycle in the wash and dried them in the sun, the stains came right out! HTH

I also soak for about 12 hours and then hand wash with W.O.W. and everything comes clean!
