I need your help. Many of my shirts have spit-up stains that have set-in and WILL NOT come out. There is sort of a greasy spot, sometimes not noticed until after laundry is done and I am wearing the item (usually at work ). We cloth diaper, and I was using Charlie's soap on both the diapers and our clothing. Apparently, it can clean poo out of diapers, but not spit-up stains out of clothes...
Once I went back to work, I had to start supplementing w/formula due to some pumping issues, so there is a mix of milk and formula based stains. Now, he is 7 months and eating lots of solid food, so that's a component as well.
Things I have tried:
- Charlie's soap
- spraying with Bio-Kleen and then wash as normal
- soak in Oxi-Clean and then wash as normal
- wash w/oxi-clean added
- rockin' green (soaked 1 hour per package instructions, wash w/o extra detergent)
- tide he, stain wash cycle w/extra tide stain remover added as pre-treatment
I have been checking a few items that were particularly noticeable, and none of these things has seemed to make any difference on the spots. I would really prefer to not have to buy all new clothes, but at this rate I've probably spend enough on laundry supplies that I could have bought new clothes at the thrift instead.
So, I am sort of out of ideas. Any tips would be greatly appreciated!!
