Baby formula often ends up more on your shirt than in the little one’s mouth, but luckily for cleanup, Tide is here to help with these tips on how to get rid of baby formula stains.
Pre-treat:Using a bucket, a sink or a bowl, create a soaking solution by adding 1 ounce or 1 ½ tablespoons of Tide HE Turbo Clean Liquid per gallon of warm water. Allow the garment to soak for up to 30 minutes, weighting the item with a white towel to keep it totally submerged.
Dose:You can use the cap to ensure you use the right amount of detergent. Just fill it with the correct dose of detergent, and pour it into the detergent dispenser if you have an HE machine, or directly into the drum before loading the clothes if you have a non-HE machine.
Load:Without rinsing off the detergent, place the garment into the washer with other items. Leaving the detergent on the stain will give your wash that extra boost of cleaning power.
Wash:Wash on the usual cycle, on the hottest wash temperature indicated. Always check the instructions on the garment’s care label.
Unload:When the cycle is complete, unload the garments immediately.
If the stain persists after washing, repeat the previous steps before tossing in the dryer, as drying will set the stain.
