How to Remove Vanilla Cake Stains
Those early moments are precious and one of the joys of being a mom or dad is watching your darling bundle of joy experience every moment with excitement. You’ve enjoyed all the highlights: the first crawl, the first step and those first words, but many of those precious first moments also have a messy side. Unfortunately, the messy side of parenting can often mean a variety of stains.
