How to Remove Baby Formula Stains


Stains from baby formula seem impossible to remove. The stains leave behind a spot that is yellow, light or dark brown and completely ruin the look of baby clothes or your clothes. Many times if the clothes have been thrown in a clothes dryer or ironed, the heat will set the stain, but not always so it is worth a try.

Things You'll Need

  • Cold water
  • Meat tenderizer
  • Clean cloth
  • Make a slightly watery paste with meat tenderizer and cold water.

  • Apply the paste to the stain.

  • Wet a clean white rag with cold water and rub the paste into the stain. After it has been rubbed into the baby formula stain, sprinkle with more meat tenderizer to cover the spot.

  • Allow the paste to sit on the stain for about an hour.

  • Wash as usual. If the stain remains, repeat the process before drying.

Tips & Warnings

  • Use a powdered meat tenderizer with no coloring or flavoring. Powdered, unflavored, uncolored meat tenderizer is available in the grocery store. The enzymes in the meat tenderizer will work to break down the baby formula.
  • The fresher or newer the stain, the better the result will be.
  • Never apply the meat tenderizer while the baby is still wearing the clothing.
