Re: Breast milk stains out of clothes?

  • breast milk shouldn't stain. Formula stains, lanolin stains, sometimes breastmilk puke with lots of stomach acid in it stains, but unless it's a delicate fabric that is just damaged by the liquid, it shouldn't be staining at all. My kid pukes like mad and I EP, so we've spilled milk everywhere, nothing has ever stained.

  • Sometimes it does stain a little. I think it's the fat in the milk. You know how if you spill cooking oil or splatter it, even after you wash there's still dark spots? I add a little squirt of blue dawn dish detergent to the washer and wash on hot, seems to do the trick.

  • You can also put it out in the sun, I find that works for formula, poop, and breast milk stains.

  • It does stain sometimes depending on the fat content. Oxy takes it out ;)

  • It's like a grease stain from the fat.  Use bar soap (like the kind you shower with) on the spot & then wash in the regular cycle.
  • Thanks!!
