Ok so should have known white dress on a 2 yr old was a bad idea. Have tried vanish spray and tablets, anone got any better ideas? Willing to try anything as its not fit to wear again at the moment and this was the first time she wore it!
and when its clean ,hang it upo in strong sunlight to dry. did this with one of dd1 white t-shirts which she spilt pasta sauce on, after washing there was aoprnage stain, after being in the sun all day it had gone.
If it is plain white, you can soak it in a solution of bleach and cold water and that will get rid of the stain in a matter of half an hour or so. I do it - frequently. Then rinse it or wash it again to remove all traces of bleach.
Check on the back of the bleach bottle Geogteach as I am not sure of the proportion. I always just chuck in a splurge and add so much water - not much help to you!
And yes, it probably does not do much for the fabric, but then, if the stain is left, the clothing is useless anyway and children's clothes don't have to last long, so I take the chance. I have never seen fabric fall apart because it has been bleached yet.
