I have been blessed with a new baby girl – baby girl number 4 to be exact. I am also blessed to be able to nurse that baby.
What I am not quite blessed by is the mustard yellow poop that seems to seldom be contained by the diaper! And so, every week I have a pile of clothing with poop stains on it that need to be washed.

You would think after 4 babies, I would know how to get the stains out of the baby’s clothing, but I don’t. So I keep doing the same thing – spray and soak and wash – and I am still left with a stain here and there that is permanently set in.
And then one day, I randomly asked a friend if she knew what to do to get the poop stain out – and she did! And it was so ridiculously simple, that I could have kicked myself. Here is what she said:
“Just wash the clothing, then put them out in the sun to dry.”
Yup, that easy. And is just happens to be summer right now, so…. last week, I washed the latest baby clothing with poop stains, laid it out in the sun to dry, brought them in – and there were no stains left on any of the clothing!
If you already knew this, be sure to share with your friends – I bet there is at least one who did not know this trick. If you didn’t know the trick, share it with all of your friends – there might be a few out that need to know.
If you do get the clothing clean, then you can trade it in to many places for credit when you baby outgrows them, including Amazon.com – Trade In with Three Easy Steps .
