QUESTION: What do I do for staining on my baby's clothes and cloth diapers?

ANSWER: You might try equal parts of Cascade dishwashing detergent and Clorox 2 powder in very hot water.

I found this tip in The Tightwad Gazette, and it works like a charm for me.

I will usually soak the clothes in this solution overnight and then wash as usual.

I haven't tried it on cloth diapers yet, and I always use the brand name detergents.

I don't know if store brands would work also.

I have even removed stains (probably food, formula, breast milk stains?) from second-hand items, and who knows how long those stains have been there?!
