Anyone have any tried and true method that really works? I have a ton of borrowed clothes and a few have been "blown out" on. I'd love any tips or links that you have. TIA.

You can try bleaching them in the sun but that might fade the colors as well....

I've had luck using a stain stick, tide and the soak cycle on my washing machine.

We had a 'blow out' here too on my tan pants and I was pretty devastated...I soaked them in cold water (I soak DS diapers anyways, so I just ran them through the wash with the diapers) and then I squirted a little lemon juice on the stain and hung them out in the sun and low and behold...the stain was gone! Good luck!

I am also going with a little sun. Using cloth diapers for the first time, I had always heard that about BF poo and the sun, but never fully believed it. Then I tried it, and you would truly have never even known there was a stain there. Remember to put it in the sun wet, though. I think that is important. If you do it for a couple of hours, I can't imagine it would mess with the color of the clothing.
