Dyeing poo stained stuff and selling it?

I have loads of baby items which have poo stains on which I just can't seem to remove... towels, vests, sleep suits etc.
Would I be unreasonable to dye them with Dylon and sell or pass them on? I'd be upfront about it but not sure if people would be grossed out...?

I would bin them. You won't get much in eBay for dyed poo clothes! Really not worth the effort.

If they are stained with poo don't sell them just throw them away.

TequilaMockinBird Mon 15-Oct-12 11:43:50

Yuck! Bin them

Just pass onto clothes recycling!

Eeew hmm

ask yourself if YOU'D buy shit-stained clothes from a stranger and then decide?

Plus all the supermarkets sell vests, babygros etc extremely cheaply so I really can't see anyone being desperate enough to buy poo stained dyed clothes on eBay.

I can't believe anyone would actually consider buying them. At least not for enough to cover the cost of the dye!

It's minging, bin them. Or dye them and put them in a clothes bank.

Better nappies?

MrsKeithRichards Mon 15-Oct-12 11:46:51

In fact even my nappies don't come out the wash with poo stains!

PropertyNightmare Mon 15-Oct-12 11:46:55

Don't clothes recycling want clean, washed clothes though? I am starting to chant 'bin it', 'bin it'!

Pochemuchka Mon 15-Oct-12 11:47:00

Yuk! I just binned all mine.

You've made me chuckle with your entrepreneurial spirit!

Noqontrol Mon 15-Oct-12 11:47:43

I wouldn't want them. Esp when they are so cheap in supermarkets and primark. I wouldn't waste your time.

We can stick clothes like that in our recycling bin.

MrsKeithRichards Mon 15-Oct-12 11:50:49

Even non poo stained vests are barely worth selling!

Have you tried the pink Vanish stain remover capsules? They are amazing!

You get buttons for baby clothes on eBay unless designer or similar.

You can buy brand new vests from
Asda very cheaply, you will need to charge a couple of quids postage.

All in all, a shit idea grin

Are you the poo-troll? grin

Am joking, I recognise your name from your cat-thread ages ago.

Charity shops take stuff like this for rags - they get money / kilo. I am always taking tatty pants / odd socks / etc (washed obviously) so I am sure they would take your poo stained vests! Just make sure they know it is a bag of rag stuff NOT for sale smile

Well I've dyed stained stuff (not sold it though). I used dark colours and it covered up a frankly amazing amount of marks, and looked quite good.

Economically probably not worth it (I dunno though, vests are, what, a fiver for three? if you have a load that would be otherwise useable then a fiver's load of dye goes quite a long way) but I just couldn't justify binning perfectly useable clothing that simply looked a bit unattractive. The waste!
