Today's tip is one that I will be using a lot in the coming few weeks as I wash and prepare all of my baby clothes for Noah's arrival! I affectionately call this little recipe "The Soak". Here is how it works. You take one cup of powdered Cascade dishwashing detergent (brands ARE important... don't ask me why but substitutes just don't work as well.) and one cup of powdered Clorox 2 bleach. Pour both cups into a five gallon bucket of the hottest water you can get from your tap. Take your stained clothing and put it in this soak overnight. In the morning, wash
and dry as usual! I have been
able to get out those impossible stains such as the lovely bright yellow stains that breastfed babies tend to produce, formula stains, mildew and mold, all sorts of inks, bright red juice stains and carrot, sweet potato and other bright orange hard to remove stains. It has worked for me time and time again!
