Anyone know how I get them out.
All the jarred food seems to be orange and im throwing all DD's clothes out.
So far I have tried soaking in Ace, Vanish and Stain devil no5&6

Soak in napisan then put some napisan in the wash too

Try washing and leaving to dry in the sunshine. It has worked wonders for me (after trying the various products you mentioned), including removing carrot/tomato stains from white cotton. A natural wonder!

I used to use a solution of Milton to soak them in - used to get almost anything out without taking the colour out.

Best to use on things you would otherwise be throwing out just in case

use a bib?

no, seriously, sunshine is amazing stuff, hung dd1 t-shirt out that had spag bol sauce stain on it, still very bright ornage, by the end of the day it had gone.

'Shout' shifts most orange babyfood stains - my bibs are on their third child now and are still looking ok. I was going through a bottle a week though at one stage. Ds2 is less messy now, so less is required, but it shifts most stains, if not on the first wash, then on the second. HTH
