How to Remove Peach Baby Food Stains
Being a mom or dad is filled with the joy, fun and wonder of watching your little one grow. But along with the excitement of seeing your favorite little person explore and experience new things for the first time, there are some challenges that you might not have expected. One of these is probably some amazement at just how messy mealtime can be. You’ve probably experienced the incredible artwork your little one can make on his or her top - just out of lunch ingredients.
Who would have thought that bits of mashed peas could end up that far across the room, or that smudges of chocolate pudding could make their way to the back of your little one’s top (it’s a special skill). And that squash puree - how on Earth did it get there? Such tiny hands – such strong staining power!
Although no one can deny that peaches are a delicious treat, there’s nothing peachy about discovering peach baby food all over your little one’s clothes. But don’t worry, peach stains on clothes don’t need to be a huge laundry disaster, because there’s a gentle detergent that can help!
Stain Remover for Baby Clothes
Peach stains have a bad reputation for leaving potentially permanent brown stains on garments, but those pesky peach stains don’t mean that those new clothes need to go straight in the trash Dreft Stage 2: Active Baby Detergent is tough on stains and helps remove 99% of baby food stains. It is made especially to clean the clothes that your baby wears, while still being gentle on your baby’s skin.
To remove those peach baby food stains, follow these easy instructions, and with Dreft Stage 2: Active Baby Detergent, you can remove peach stains in just a few steps.
Stain removal steps
Remove Excess:Take any bits of peach off the clothes before rinsing the stain under cold, running water. Use a high water pressure to make stain removal easier.
Pour:Pour Dreft Stage 2: Active Baby Detergent all over the stain from either the cap or bottle.
Pre-treat:Make a soaking solution in a bucket, sink or bowl. Do this by adding 1 ounce or 1 ½ tablespoons of Dreft per gallon of warm water. Soak the clothes for about 30 minutes. Keep the items submerged by placing a white towel on top.
Dose:Fill the cap with the correct amount of Dreft (you’ll find instructions on the packet) and pour it into the detergent dispenser of your high-efficiency machine, or directly into the drum.
Load:Load the stained clothes into the washer.
Wash:Check the garment’s care label before setting the wash cycle and water temperature.
Unload:If the stain persists after washing, repeat the previous steps because drying will only set any remaining stain. Once the clothes are clean, toss them in the dryer.
All done! No more peach stains on clothes. Which is a relief, because although your baby is peaches and cream, we know that laundry time is a whole different ball game when it comes to those brown, peach stains.
It’s no wonder that Dreft Stage 2: Active Baby Detergent is recommended by Pampers. Not only does it remove tough peach stains from clothes, but it also keeps your baby’s clothes smelling fresh. Your baby will no longer smell like fruit puree, but will smell, well, like a baby!
Dreft is also powerful in combating other baby food stains and playtime stains such as grass and dirt. So, as your baby is growing more and more active by the day, you don’t need to fear the mess and mischief that he or she will get into. Enjoy this special time together, and let Dreft take care of the laundry.
