    To start things off, spot the stains and rub them off with a white cloth or a paper. It is advised that you do not use a cloth which is dark in color and don’t even try to use a towel. Rubbing with a towel or a dark cloth is expected to increase the staining effects on a particular fabric. Once you have rubbed off the stain with a white cloth, a dry spot is left on the fabric and it can be removed later on.

    With the dry stains still on the fabric, take it off from your baby and pre-soak it in liquid laundry detergent which has been mixed in cold water. Make sure that you do not use warm or hot water as it ruins the quality of the fabric. Wait for at least twenty minutes so that the baby’s clothes are completely soak in the water-detergent solution.

    Once the pre-soaking is complete, take out the clothes and put them inside a washing machine. Many people advice you to hand wash the baby clothes, but that will only increase the chances of the fabric becoming weak. Therefore, try to wash the clothes in a washing machine with cold water.

    Once you have completed washing the baby’s clothes in a washing machine, remove these clothes and after they are dried, simply inspect them for any more stains. There is always a possibility that not all stains have been removed. In this case, you need to wash the clothes all over again. However, this time you will have to use a pre-wash stain remover. Once you have applied a pre-wash stain remover, repeat the second and third steps. Make sure that the colors of the garment remain the same and are not faded after the second wash.
