    breastmilk only doesn't stain as bad as forumla.
    I used oxciclean on poop stains.
    You just soak it over night!

    Ditto on the oxyclean for ebf poop stains.
    I'm still experimenting with spit-up stains, for now I'm washing a load every day. Method Baby and All Free & Clear both seem to be getting the stains out for now, but I'm not sure how well they'd work if the stains were more than a day or so old.
    I'll let you know what works this week . . .

    With DD and DS I've always used Spray 'N Wash and an old toothbrush to lightly scrub the spot before washing. After spraying and lightly scrubbing I often even leave the clothes until the next day before washing. I've never had stains set in, even on white onesies.

    I don't have a problem with stains but sometimes the smell lingers. I always add a big splash of white vinegar to our laundry. it gets out all the smells, from spit up to DH's b.o. and the vinegar smell comes out in the dryer. it works on pet stains and the garbage disposal too.
