    I found the only way was to soak it with some shout or spray and wash :) but the only one that never came out was the formula stains

    Need to blitz with vanish or similar before wash then add Oxy or something to the was, They do a big one in tesco for £1 called Whizz or something that is fab

    question though why is all baby food orange based ;confused:
    i think it is a conspiracy between food and washing powder people!!

    we used dish soap and soaked her clothes in cold water the one day I let her eat with her clothes on (and they were orange stains) Came out with no problems (the clothes were light pink too!)

    I just make a paste out of normal washing up powder and use a spoon to smear it onto the stains. Then it stays on it until it goes on the wash. If it's not too badly stained but I still think it needs something before going on I soak it straight in the sink with some washing up powder. I always use more than I should I think lol. But so far, nothing of Ally's is stained and we have a lot of mess!

    I'm going to try the milton.

    i've got two things of fairy soap you scrub it on the clothes with some water and then put it in the wash i find that and vanish works a cheat.

    I just don't get Kathryn any white clothes :rofl:

    Seriously though, we just use dreft baby detergent and it comes out just fine, even the bright orange veggies, if its really bad we just let the stain sit with some dreft on it and then was it. Maybe it's our washing machine :shrug:

    My problem is sometimes I forget about the food on the clothes.

    I am tempted to dress him all in black because all of his whites are stained.
