Let’s be honest. No one tells you how hard it is too clean poop off of clothes.

I just thought I needed that Dreft spray (which does nothing btw) and all would be fine. Um NO.

Within the first week of having my first baby, I had a pile of clothes that were SO DIRTY and I just wanted to throw them away. I was so frustrated.

Has anyone been there?

Luckily, my mother and grandmother were in town and helped me find a PERFECT solution. This is how to remove baby poop stains from ANY clothes.

I am sure you have seen tons of solutions for doing this. Many involve creating an essential oil cleaner, rubbing in a paste, letting the clothes air in the sun…

Let me tell you. I don’t have time for any of that. Instead, this process takes just minutes. And you can just drop the clothes and go. Perfect for when you have a screaming baby covered in poop.

Also, this WORKS every time. I don’t have any clothes that have stains on them because of this. Enjoy!

Instructions to Remove Poop from Baby Clothes (that will change your life)

How to Remove Baby Poop Stains:

Keep all three items in your laundry room ready to go. When something gets stained…

  1. Spray the stain with OxiClean.

    I don’t rub this in – just spray to cover the area.

  2. Put the clothes (already sprayed) into the bucket.

    You will let these – and any future clothes that week.
    Just let everything soak in the bucket until laundry day.

  3. Add a little bit of the Biz into the bucket.

    I usually fill the cap to the first line and add to the bucket.

  4. Add water to cover the clothes and let soak over 24 hours.

    Just leave this soaking in your laundry room all week.
    Add other stained clothes to the bucket as they happen.

  5. Wash clothes!

    When you are ready to wash clothes (anywhere between 24 hours and 1 week later), dump contents of bucket into washer machine and wash normally.

  6. That’s it! Spray, soak, wash.

Additional Tips:

  • I leave the bucket by the washing machine and just keep adding clothes to the bucket whenever there are new stained clothes.
  • I’ve left clothes soaking for a week. As long as the water level covers the clothes – all is fine.  I have found that the clothes need to soak at least for 24 hours.
  • When we go on a trip, I take the OxiClean spray with me. I spray clothes, and wrap in a plastic bag until I am able to get home to soak them.

Stains I have been able to get out:

  • Stains that were washed and dried.  If the stains were not removed, I just soaked them again and got them out the second time!
  • Stains that had soaked into the clothes for SIX days (from vacation). While on vacation, I carried the spray with me and pre-treated the clothes. Then, when we got home six days later, I soaked them for 48 hours and washed. The stains were gone!
  • Stains that did not remove the first time. I repeated this whole process and they were removed.

I know this sounds too good to be true – but let me tell you. I have used this method on the WORST stains – with fabulous results!

I don’t want to share any before photos with you – that’s super gross. But, believe me when I have seen the most drastic improvements from the most poopy stains!

Please let me know if this works for you – and if you have any additional tips!
