How to Remove Banana Baby Food Stains
No matter how many airplane landings mommy and daddy may try in order to guide that spoon to their little one’s mouth, baby food always seems to end up off the runway and onto baby’s clothes. But whether it’s mashed peas or pureed banana baby food that has snuck its way onto the floor, wall or baby clothes, there’s no need to worry. Although these snaccidents will seem to occur more and more frequently as your little one becomes more active, removing stains from clothes doesn’t have to be a big laundry headache.
So even though typical mealtime messes like banana baby food stains are bound to end up on your little one’s clothes, there’s a simple solution on hand.
Dreft Stage 2: Active Baby Detergent helps remove 99% of baby food stains and other pesky stains on clothes like grass stains and dirt stains. This gentle detergent has been specifically designed for energetic (and messy) babies who get into all kinds of mischief as they grow and explore the world.
About Banana Stains
So, let’s talk about bananas. They are a popular snack for babies, but let’s face it - although bananas are yummy, they’re also perfect for squashing between tiny fingers. For your growing little one, nothing is as much fun as mashing a bit of banana and spreading it all over – accidentally of course! But, that yellowish brown, mushy banana baby food can get ingrained between fabric fibers surprisingly fast, and, if left untreated, smooshed banana baby food can leave a dark stain on your baby’s clothes or bib.
For babies, there’s nothing more entertaining than getting food here, there and everywhere. So if you’ve found stains on clothes, you can trust Dreft to be tough on the stains while also being gentle on your baby’s skin. Luckily for parents, Dreft Stage 2: Active Baby Detergent helps remove banana baby food stains in a few easy steps. So you’ll have more time to relax or play with your energetic, growing baby, while spending less time worrying about the laundry.
Dreft also has a stain removal solution for a variety of common stains that your little one might get into, including grass stains, ketchup stains and fruit stains. So, next time your active baby has a little too much fun with the banana baby food, you’ll know how to remove tough stains. Follow these simple steps to guide you through removing stains from clothing with ease.
Stain removal steps
Remove Excess:Scrape any excess banana off the clothes before rinsing under cold, running water. Use a higher water pressure to make stain removal easier.
Pre-treat:Create a soaking solution in a bucket, sink or bowl. Add 1 ounce or 1 ½ tablespoons of Dreft per gallon of warm water. Allow the stained clothes to soak for up to 30 minutes, keeping the clothes fully submerged by placing a white towel on top.
Dose:Use the cap to dose the right amount of Dreft - you’ll find the recommended dose on the pack. Pour it into the detergent dispenser if you have a high-efficiency machine, or directly into the drum if you have a non-HE machine.
Load:Put the stained clothes in the washer.
Wash:Check the instructions on the garment’s care label to choose the right wash cycle and water temperature.
Unload:If the stain is still there, repeat this process, as drying will set the stain. Once the stain is completely removed, it’s ready for the dryer.
And there you have it! In just a few easy steps your baby clothes will be clean and fresh - no matter what the mealtime mayhem may have been. A gentle detergent that can stand up to the demands of your little one’s increasingly active days, as well as the food stains such as mustard stains and grape juice stains - it’s little wonder Dreft is recommended by Pampers. Dreft has moms and dads covered because it knows that active babies will cause a little mess (ok, maybe a lot of mess!) from playtime to mealtime, and yet it can handle many of the most common baby stains with ease.
