Hi guys!!! I have a 9month old who refuses to wear bibs, but loves to eat fruit, veggies, meats, and many things that stain clothing.  Any recommendations for a good way to clean the food stains off her clothes? At present I soak her clothes for 24hrs in oxiclean, then wash them in tide acti-lift!  Her favortie foods are watermelon, red peppers and carrots so I have a lot of red stains!!! She has colourful designs on some of her clothes, so I can't use bleach.  Any recommendations to completely remove the stains would be a great help!!

Just read this - vinegar! on May 04, 2012 @ 09:52 am

Saturate the stain in vinegar, and allow to it stand for several minutes. Then, rinse with water, and repeat the process, if needed. Wash immediately after.

fruit stains... on May 04, 2012 @ 10:17 am

With fruit stains you pour boiling water (I do it straight from the kettle) and that takes it right out! Not sure about meat and barf stains, but try it!

great tips! on May 04, 2012 @ 11:42 am

My boy isn't a big fan of bibs either, and the food always finds a way to get under it! I like the foods you are giving your baby. I need to get more variety in my son's diet. He has a sweet tooth like me!

Yes, the more variety you give them young, the less likely they will be picky eaters when they are older. Even if I don't like something I still give it to her to see if she will eat it. Plus, I figure if I can get her hooked on fruits and veggies, those will be the snacks she is more likely to choose later! Try melons!!! My daughter can't get enough of any type of melon!!

Where do you get this product? I live in the western side of Canada, and I don't see a way to order it online?
