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

NO ONE tells you how hard it is too clean poop off of clothes. I thought I just 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 almost just threw them away I was so frustrated.

Has anyone been here?

Luckily, my mother and grandmother were in town and helped me find a PERFECT solution.

There are so many systems for doing this – creating a paste, letting air in the sun…I don’t have time for any of that.

MomTip: Amazon Subscribe and Save is my eternal lifesaver. I use this Amazon monthly subscription to order everything – diapers, soap, makeup, coffee, toothpaste, toilet paper… I love that some items come every month – some every 6 months. Also – if you have Amazon Family – diapers and baby products are up to 20% off when you use Subscribe and Save. It is EVERYTHING.

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

What you need to remove set-in poop stains from baby clothes:


  1. When something gets stained, spray the OxiClean on the stain.

    (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 soak in the bucket until wash day.

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

    I usually fill the cap to the first line.

  4. Add water above the level of clothes and let soak over 24 hours.

  5. 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.

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!
