Thanks to Karyn for this Frugal Baby Tip!

I have found it's best to use COLD water to pre-rinse to prevent the stains from setting.

Although I used disposables when my son was exclusively breastfed, there were sometimes poo stains on his clothing (and mine!) when the disposables leaked. What I did was rinse the stained clothing in the bathroom sink in COLD water immediately after it happened (or as soon as possible), rubbing the stain while holding it under the water.

I also rubbed a bar of soap on the stained area, then again rubbed the fabric together under the water. This alone would usually dramatically lessen the stain (sometimes completely remove it).
