Parenting Pointers: How to Get Baby-Food Stains Out of Clothes


Every mother wishes that her baby was capable of eating as an adult without leaving all those nasty stains on to the clothes. If you have at least one child, you are probably acquainted with the fact that such stains are not easily removed, no matter of the methods and detergents that you use. However, do not feel discouraged – your baby is not going to stop leaving food stains, no matter how carefully you try to protect the clothes and the surfaces. It is true that spots, found on the perfect baby outfit seem like a disaster for every caring mother but there are still effective decisions for this problem.

Thanks to the following article, you will learn how to remove food stains from baby clothes easily and in an effective way. Now you do not need to spend a lot of money in buying chemicals that often turn out to be ineffective when they need to deal with food stains.
Here are some wonderful suggestions:

Baking Soda
Thanks to baking soda, you will easily get rid of the food stains. For the purpose, you need to follow these instructions:
·      Use a bucket to fill it with cold water and then  add ¼ cup of baking soda to it
·      Dip the stained clothes into this solution
·      Take some dish soap and apply it on to the stain by gently scrubbing it.
·      Leave the  clothes into the solution for one night – the baking soda won’t damage the clothes
·      After draining the water from the bucket, put the clothes into the washer
·      Before putting the clothes into the dryer, check out for stains that may have remained

Vinegar is the perfect remover of stains caused by veggies, jams and juices. Such stains tend to be really nasty and many mothers feel desperate when they search for the right cleaner. Vinegar is a natural solution and all you need to do is create a mixture that consists of one part vinegar and two parts water. By using an eyedropper, apply the solution on to the stained area and let it stay for about 10 minutes. Vinegar won’t damage the baby’s clothes in any way and it is a cost effective decision for the treatment of a wide range of stains.

The Bleaching Effect of The Sun
If you feel helpless when struggling with the nasty stains and you do not seem to find another method to get rid of them, why not trying the bleaching effect of the sun. It is true that even the sun cannot help with the most severe stains, however, you can at least try to take advantage of this approach that is all natural. Hang out the clothes that have stains – although there is no guarantee that the stains will disappear, they can at least lighten up or become less visible.
Finally, if you do not succeed in removing the food stains, do not feel confused. You had better accept that some stains are hard to be removed, no matter how much you want to get rid of them. Food stains on baby’s clothes can certainly drive you crazy but if you do not want to use commercial cleaning products, take a look at these simple recipes that are all natural. Do not hesitate to try them – they are easily prepared and they will certainly help you to remove a wide range of food stains from the baby’s clothes. After all, good moms always search for alternative ways when it comes to providing care of their lovely babies.
