Watch This Quick Video For Some Tips:

For Fresh Stains

If you can catch them quick, they are easier to manage!
  • Create a paste from a non-bio detergent, such as Persil Non-Bio, and a little water. Not only is Persil Non-Bio great at removing stains, it's also very kind to sensitive skin
  • Apply it directly to the stain, rubbing it in thoroughly with a toothbrush and let it sit for 5 minutes
  • Wash your baby's clothes on your usual cycle in the washing machine with a non-bio detergent and a delicately fragranced fabric conditioner, such as Comfort Pure
  • Check the clothing once washed to make sure the stain has been removed before drying

For Set in Stains

You can't always get to a stain straight away, so for older stains, follow these steps.
  • Repeat the first two steps above
  • Fill a basin with piping hot water and a cap full of a non-bio detergent and soak the stained clothing overnight
  • Then wash the clothes in your washer as usual
  • Check the clothing once washed to make sure the stain has been removed before drying

For Really Stubborn Stains

This one is for those really nasty stains.
If you have a poonami on your hands, the best thing to do is to get rid of the excess down the loo, then rinse off in the sink or shower. (Make sure to clean up thoroughly afterwards with a strong bathroom spray!) Then follow these steps:
  • Repeat the first two steps above (Apply your paste directly to the stain, then soak overnight)
  • Wash in your regular cycle with a non-bio detergent and a delicately fragranced fabric conditioner
  • Dry your clothes outside in the sunshine, as not only will your clothes smell great, but sunshine is supposed to help lift out stubborn stains. Win, win!
