This post was originally published in March of this year. Since Kristen asked for our favorite cleaning tip I thought I would republish! I love Oxi Clean and keep a bucket in my house at all times!
This weekend was a baby reality check. I decided I needed to find all our bins of baby clothes, bedding, towels and bibs and start washing and getting them organized. I was sad to find many of my favorite outfits had nasty stains and spots on them. I almost got rid of them and then I decided to try soaking them in OxiClean for a few days. I was shocked when I pulled all these cute outfits out of the bucket and they were all stain free! OxiClean got every stain out the adorable outfits.
I wish I could tell you that OxiClean gave me some of their cleaner to try and promote on this site, but they didn’t. I have used Oxy Clean for a few years and have been impressed with its stain removal. The one key to getting out the stains is to let the clothes soak for a few days. I have tried soaking for a few hours and that didn’t work. I just follow the directions on the container and come back a few days later.
To be honest I have no idea what is in OxiClean or why it works so well, but I know that it works. The only other method that has worked this well on baby stains is adding lemon juice to the stain and hanging them on the line in the hot sun. This worked great when we lived in Cuba (the hottest and sunniest place on earth), but I am unable to do that here, without a clothesline.
If you have a great tip to get baby yuck out of clothes, leave a comment. I love finding ways to make clothes last, with six kids we have a lot of hand-me-downs around here and I try to keep clothes looking nice.
