Or not. I’d be happy if stains just stayed away permanently.
Months ago I almost never had problems with stains. My girlfriend asked me, ” how is that even possible with two kids”? I figured it was some “eating with good manners” skill I’ve taught them, making me a stellar parent. Unfortunately, I’m not the amazing parent I imagined. For more than one reason.
So the answer is….my daughter, who is now 4, is old enough to eat (mostly) without spills. And at the time, my son was 6 months old and just starting solid foods so there were few spills. We were a stain free household and proud of it. But like they say, “pride comes before a fall” and now that my son is eating finger foods, he’s a mess! And so are his clothes.
I had some Dreft Stain Remover on hand so I used it and it worked fine but I wanted something a little more eco-friendly. Toys R Us had a sample of BabyGanics Stain, Stain, Go Away and after dousing shirt after shirt with it – I’m a believer. When it took a coffee stain out of a white shirt that had been sitting in my laundry bin for over a month – I was SOLD. I bought a big bottle and it’s gloriously stored right on my washing machine for daily use.
So ladies, what do you use to get stains out?
