Use these tips from Clorox 2 for removing even the toughest common kid stains and you'll breathe a little easier the next time they head outside to play:
A good first step is to presoak the item in COOL water using a good liquid detergent that contains enzymes for at least 30 minutes, and up to 1 to 8 hours for whites, to help loosen the fibrous part of the stain. Don't use hot water as it may "cook" this material. From here, apply Clorox 2® Stain Fighter & Color Booster, rub it into the stain and wait 5-10 minutes. Wash immediately in warmest water recommended using detergent and Clorox 2. Inspect the item. If any stain remains, repeat the steps above prior to tumble drying the item.
Start by brushing scraping or wiping away any excess dirt particles. Then, rinse with cold water from the back. Heavily soiled items will benefit from a warm water presoak with Clorox 2 Stain Fighter & Color Booster for (1 hour or up to overnight depending on severity of stain).
