Our son was a big drooler. He stayed wet from drool and the runny nose. I kept a bib on him almost constantly which helped collect anything that would otherwise land on his clothes.
Oxi-clean wasn't on the market then or I would have tried it.

I have used it since it became available and like it a lot.

We have very hard water here in Houston and I use Oxy Clean in ALL my laundry. It's the BEST!

I found that it drained the colours out of my clothes faster. If have had to try a few different varieties of soaps to find ones that worked better with the types of stains that I had. The best thing for the baby stains though was my mothers new LG front loader

I used a product called Zout from Nancy's Notions. It was very concentrated and a little capful of it would get stains out of a whole load. When my youngest son played little league baseball, one evening 's practice involved sliding to the base on red clay in the rain. By the time they were through, his white double knit pants were red with clay caked into it. I soaked the pants over night in the washer with two capfuls of the Zout and then washed them . When he wore them back to the next practice, his pants were the only white one on the team. If you live in the US, you can get a bottle of Zout at Walmart, but it is not the same formula I used.

I know that 4 scoops OxiClean per gallon of water, 6 hours, works for soaking.

What other dosages work, for you?

I know it's an old thread that got bumped up. LOL I use an oxy product and it seems to work just as well as the Oxy-Clean, I think it's Sun Oxy or something like that from Walmart, a lot less expensive. Hydrogen peroxide is good for going on things like blood stains, the sooner the better, but it even helps with dried ones. I'll soak the spot with HP and let it sit for a while.
