The secret of getting baby food stains out of clothing is to immediately pre-treat. Don’t wait until laundry day before dealing with it. Grab a stain stick immediately and use it on the garment. When you do wash, use cold water instead of hot water. If you notice the stain still there after washing, don’t put it in the dryer, pre-treat again and send it back through the washer. Most stains don’t come out of clothing after they have been put through the dryer. I can’t tell you how many articles of clothing I’ve thrown out due to formula and unsightly baby food stains. I can’t make any promises as material does make a difference as does the hardness of the water used, but as a mom who has dealt many times with these types of stains, that tip has helped me hang on to clothing longer.
