Believing These 5 Myths About Baby Safe Dish Soap Keeps You From Growing

Baby oil is probably the most common products that are being used in looking after babies. It contains mineral oils and a fragrance, and is used for a variety of things. Here are some of the uses of baby oil:

Remove ear wax build-up
Used along with your baby’s bubble bath to soften skin
Applied to baby’s scalp to treat and/or prevent cradle cap.
Remove bubble gum
Used for massages that may relax and keep your child warm
Used in creating homemade baby wipes.

Because it is fairly thin, baby oil can easily drip or spill on to clothes. And because it is oil, it usually is tough to get out of clothes and may not come out through a regular wash. Fortunately there exists a way to get baby oil from your child’s clothes. Here is how:

Before you do anything, drastic, first try treating the oil-stained baby clothes using pre-wash or pre-treatment stain removers that permeate through the stain and loosen its bond with the fabric, and wash them according to care instructions. If this does not work, there are a couple of things you can do to take baby oil from your child’s clothes.

Oil stain can be removed quickly if you treat it as fast as possible. First, lay the soiled clothes on a flat surface like a table. Sprinkle cornstarch on the stained areas so that a few of the oil will be absorbed. Allow it sit for 5 to a quarter-hour for maximum absorption. Brush the cornstarch off afterwards utilizing a dry sponge.

Next, pour a bit of liquid dish or laundry detergent onto the stained area and gently rub it in to the fabric of the clothes utilizing a soft, damp sponge. Let it sit for about 15 minutes.

After letting it sit for a few minutes, rinse the stained area by running it under tepid to warm water. Keep rinsing until you have removed all the suds from the detergent soap. Most of the soap should have been removed during this stage in the process as well.

Pour a few drops of dish or laundry detergent again on to the areas. Or, you can apply a pre-wash stain treatment if you want. Next, throw the clothes in to the washing machine. Add a baby-safe laundry detergent and run your baby’s clothes through a warm water wash. If the material does not allow it, or if the care instructions say you can’t wash the clothing item in hot water, then it is better to perform it in cold or water.

Dry the washed clothing items on a clothes line instead of in the dryer. After the clothes have dried, check if there are still any stains remaining. If you may still find stains on the clothes, pour in several drops of dish or laundry detergent on to the spot once more and wash the clothes again in tepid to warm water (if the material and/or care instructions permit) and baby-safe laundry detergent.
