How do you get carrot etc stains out of clothes?

So far I am using Vanish spray followed by a 60degree wash with Fairy Non Bio and it is not removing the carrot/any orange stains from DDs (and my) clothes?

Any recommendations?

Also when can you start using bio powder? Shall I buy some as a test and see if she reacts to it?

I have not had to deal with carrot stains, but I use shout spray which is fantastic... haven't had a stain it can't deal with yet!

if all else fails - try Milton

I use Vanish Oxyaction. Wet the garment, not too much water, and sprinkle the granules on direct. Gets everything out, inc tea! Might try Shout spray now as I like new product

Vanish spray worked for me on a 40 degree wash!

soak in nappisan overnight and put a good measure of it in the wash. Also wash with pre-wash.

alternatively... buy lots of orange tops

I was looking through ds's clothes in the loft when i put the decorations away and all the 0-3 stuff is beautiful and then all the 3-6mth stuff is ORANGE. Carroty orange. So, no, i'm afraid i'm of no help whatsoever sorry

NO help....just more stain obsessions!!
Mine are, tomatoes, banana, orange/tangerine just to name a few....end up stripping children to eat!
