Dealing With Toddler Stains With the Help of Resolve Tip Exchange
Stains are a constant enemy in my house. When I put something on my daughter, Ava to wear it’s not a question if she will stain the outfit, but when!
Her stains have evolved over time. As a baby, sometimes she would have the most ‘ridicolous’ blow-outs. Every parent knows what I mean! Not only would her onsie and pants be completely covered, but her whole body! Blowout stains are the worst. I mean how can you really get ‘that’ completely out? I can’t tell you how many outfits she runined.
As a toddler, stains haven’t gotten any better. Ava will not wear a bib, so every outfit she wears is almost a gauranteed stain problem. The worst food stains are from her favorite meal, daddy’s homemade bolognese pasta. She and half her clothing devours the rich red tomato and meat sauce.
My best tip when it comes to stain removing is to immediately take preventative stain measures when a piece of clothing comes in contact with food or anything else that can possibly stain. The stain must be wet with water. Even if you are out because the longer you wait the harder it will be to get the stain out. This is the only way to get out the nasty pasta stains from Ava’s clothing too.
I recently used the Resolve Oxi-Action In-Wash Stain Removal Powder to pretreat my daughter’s food stain. It was great addition to my tip of applying warm water immediately to a stain. I took a little bit of the powder and mixed it with warm water to create a paste and then applied it to the stain. Plus, Resolve has developed a clever scoop with nobbles on the bottom so you can work it right into the stain. Obviously, much better than using my fingers!
